Coffee & Tea Are Not Cuisine

Yup - that's right. The coffee and tea that is served in USA restaurants and hotels is just that, generic coffee and tea.



Restaurants don't really give a rat's you-know-what about their coffee and tea programs.



Do you agree with that statement?



Does your restaurant spend the least amount possible for the best flavor wholesale coffee or tea from the full-line distributor?



Don't shoot the messenger - the belief that USA restaurants and hotels… Continue

We Just Bought A Horse (an amazing wild mustang}

Greetings all,

We have been on a journey for soooo long to find different ways to give back. First step was to feed the hungry every day for almost 2 years, we only stopped because the local goverment said we could not do it unless we were a part of a church group already feeding the hungry. Second step was to aquire land to set up an urban youth sancuary and rescue animals and grow n organic farm, well we now have the land and we now have our first horse.

We want the youth to know… Continue

Hi, I'm Jeff and I'm a coffee and tea addict...

As a former Exec Chef 9X across the USA, it's my professional belief that the restaurant industry has much to learn from - and teach to - the specialty coffee/tea segment. From time to time I'll cross-post here in FohBoh the adventures of my deep-immersion knowledge-build in the world of specialty coffee and tea.

Juan Valdez is no friend of mine

I have always been a follower, never the leader, and as much as I would like to be one of the pack lined up in a Starbucks or other coffee emporiums ordering a mocha, double latte, it will never happen. Fair trade, organic, hauled on the back of mule in Columbia means nothing to me – I hate coffee, I hate the smell, and I hate the taste. You say everyone loves coffee, but I beg to differ.



For the complete rant on coffee read the… Continue

Spots for tea

I've never been much of a tea drinker myself, but I came across this item as I randomly thought about how much beverages contribute to a restaurant's success.



Here are five new things I learned about tea:



1.) According to the article, "wholesale tea sales more than tripled to an estimated $6.5 billion" from 1990 to 2006.



2.) If you are… Continue

Cook the Vote - Part 3

In Part 2, I blogged about how Cuzini, a Sri Lankan restaurant, got out the vote for the Restaurant of the Year award, voted for by the readers of the local newspaper.



Well, I've just heard that Cuzini has won the runner-up spot and was beaten to the top spot by just a handful of votes. Not bad for a restaurant, that just a few months ago, wasn't sure how it should be positioned in the over-crowded UK curry house market place.



Here's the key guerrilla marketing strategy in… Continue

All I want is a cup of tea

Having expertise in your product is expected at a speciatly establishment. If you brag about how great your product is, then serve it with mediocre condiments, there is an immediate disconnect. Add poor customer service and you may never go back. Worse for the establishment, tell other about your experience...

Yesterday, I bypassed Starbucks in Santana Row for the tea place around the corner. A real tea house! I love tea and I was excited to finally try this place.

Well, my…
