Finding coffee blogs is actually quite difficult. The truth about the blogging biz is it tends to fizzle just as quickly as it starts. You can find a million blogs that have been started and stopped without leaving too much of a mark. Of course it is still fun to go back and read the postings on Chemically Imbalanced or Meet the Press Pot but you won’t find any new material. These five coffee blogs are going strong and should keep brewing all the way through 2013.
