Hi, I’m Tim and welcome to my caffeinated journey, sharing tips, tricks, hacks and product reviews to help you make best choice for your own coffee adventures.
Join The Coffee Geek Tribe
I have been sipping and writing about coffee since 2014.
New Year’s Eve 2013, I was introduced to Specialty Coffee by Tyson Adams at his cafe Jhai Coffee House (pictured in the center above) in the middle of nowhere in the southern regional village of Paksong, Laos – The heart of the Bolaven Plateau where some of the finest beans are grown in South East Asia.
My first drip-style Pourover brew was served with no cream, no sugar, black as the ace of spades… and I hated it. However, after 4 days of continued persistence, I grew to fall in love with this artisan style coffee. The Coffee Geek within me was unleashed.
Since then my coffee knowledge has grown exponentially yet, as the knowledge of coffee is vast and complex, I still call myself a beginner as there is always something new to learn from the coffee realm.
These days I spend most of my time based in Chiang Mai running my Digital Agency – Launchpresso Digital Marketing, hopping from cafe to cafe, discovering some of the best specialty coffee artisans this beautiful city has to offer.
The best thing about coffee culture is you connect with many great people around the world purely through being passionate about coffee. And you get to make good friends around the world too.
Through filtering through an initial bias and self-righteous ways on how to drink coffee, I’ve humbly come to learn that there is no right or wrong way on it should be served. We are all unique and have subjective preferences on taste… it’s what makes us all unique.
Through this site I hope to provide you a ton of value on all things relating to coffee. From cafe and product reviews, tips and tricks, How-to’s and great all-round coffee stories.
I hope you enjoy and please feel free to follow my journey on Instagram and Facebook.
