  • Malcolm Cox

    Malcolm Cox is a journalist and copywriter with a passion for all things coffee. Having worked as a Starbucks store manager for four years in a previous life, he knows exactly what is needed to make the perfect cup of joe. Malcolm’s favourite coffee is a black americano made with Colombian arabica beans, but he's also partial to the odd espresso shot in the morning. Malcolm wants to use this platform to let everyone know that the bitter, black gravy that people call instant coffee is a scourge on Western civilisation.

Her morning macchiato is crucial to getting her through her long days of study. She is equally as passionate about cooking and photography, and she combines both in her blogging. Valeria is working towards a professional accountancy qualification, so for her, coffee is as much about fuel for the mind as it is about pleasure.
