After a hiatus for a long time Coffee In Iceland is back up and running.
The world has changed since the last entry. Covid-19 has taken over our lives and in doing so it has changed the way we consume coffee and even how we roast it and distribute it.
The effects of Covid-19 on our consumption and on the coffee business has been in many ways a massive learning experience and in other ways it has been devastating. My personal coffee consumption has been a positive one in some ways, but for the little coffee shops and roasters it has been very hard for many.
Everyone is doing their best to cope and trying to survive the whole global situation. For most people life simply goes on within the limits of local restrictions, face masks and the whole local Covid-19 guidelines. In relation to coffee and enjoyment of drinking and searching for the best cup, as is my goal, things have been interesting to say the least. I have learned a lot about my favorite drink and I have increased my skill level in making variations of the black gold we like to consume, but I do have a lot to learn and so much to try.
The thing I am trying to figure out as I go along, adapting to the new world of Covid-19 and how one can live with it and how one can write a blog centered on coffee in a changed world. A luxurious problem compared to many, but a problem non the less. The journey into the murky worlds of local coffee and life in general seems to be opening up. Some changes on the topic will be done, but the blog will center around coffee as before, but on a broader scale.
Let’s see where this journey takes us this time.
