Linking Around - Beat the Winter Doldrums with these Fab Coffee Resources
It's an interesting Monday: January is here, the holidays are clearly behind us, and Winter is now at the point where I feel like it's offered me just about all I'm wanting out of it.

Over on cleanhotdry, they pose an intriguing choice: espresso or brewed coffee? Take a look, as the poll isn't just a matter of preference. Be sure to read the comments, as the reasons given as well as those who voted and how they voted are just as intriguing.
Ben Helfen of Octane Coffee in Atlanta is fairly well-known in coffee circles for his latte art abilities.
