I’m just some random blogger living in the Los Angeles area. I like coffee and tea. I also like knitting, video games, books, and a whole crapton of other things. I have a fluffy liberal arts degree and I work in the tech industry.

I don’t work for any of the companies whose products feature in my posts. I worked for Starbucks over a decade ago while I was in college — I enjoyed it a lot, and it gave me a real passion for espresso drinks. I’m not currently affiliated with them, or with any of the other cafes, coffee shops, or stores I mention.

I’m not paid to review any of the products featured here — I just do it because I like coffee and tea drinks, and I like sharing my thoughts on them. I walk into the store and buy them like any other customer, and I don’t tell the staff I’m planning to blog about what I’m ordering. If this should change at any point, there will be a note on the review in question.

If you’d like to contact me, the easiest way is to leave a comment or to @reply me on Twitter.
