About Benji

Hi! I'm Benji...The Coffee Concierge. I'm here to hopefully answer any questions you have about making great coffee at home. I'm not a coffee connoisseur, nor do I work as a barista. I just really enjoy a great cup of coffee, as well as the ritual involved in making great coffee. So drop me a line - let's talk coffee (or whatever)!
