Articles – Starbucks design, Ediya, Brazilian Arabica

Hello,

It’s a snowy day here in Seoul, but… it’s been snowing for over 6 hours and nothing has stuck yet! The streets and the sidewalks and the trees are all bare. Oh well. But still, it’s a great day to go out for coffee. And I just read about a new place in The Korea Herald so I decided to visit it! I’m writing to you today from the large and bustling Terarosa Coffee in downtown Seoul. I’ve had a cup of Brazil Ouro Verde (that means “green gold”) and two small pastries as I’ve caught up on some stuff. I’d also like to catch up on this blog a bit… and I won’t be able to today, but at least I have a few articles to post…

Brazilian Arabica:

While the article I saw was in The Korea Herald, the original was actually from Bloomberg News:
