Roundup: Mighty-O Donut tours, Starbucks news and putting weird things in coffee
Posted by Melissa Allison
Taking the holiday to wrap up loose ends, like:
- The New York Times calls the Seattle-built Slayer espresso machine charismatic and beautiful.
- A reader wants to know where she can find a cup -- not a pound -- of Kona coffee around here. Anyone know?
- Mighty-O Donuts hosts free tours on Thursday and Friday (Feb. 18 and 19) at 10 a.m. Sign up at 2110 N. 55th Street (where the tours are), or 206-547-0335, or email@example.com.
- Lincoln Graham represents Seattle with his photo of a Caffe Ladro barista reflected in an espresso machine at PictoryMag.com (scroll to No. 20).
- Sarah Gilbert at Daily Finance considers how blending coffee and turning up the roaster can save money and hurt flavor.
- Starbucks draws attention from the research firm Morningstar, which gave its debt an A-, and TheStreet.com, which says its stock is overpriced.
- A Starbucks customer with Tourette's syndrome sues for alleged discrimination after an outburst, The Palm Beach Post reports.
- And someone actually writes a blog about putting weird things in coffee -- eggs, curry, salmon cream cheese. There are photos.
