Thanks for visiting BeanBuzz! We're super excited to have you here. BeanBuzz is kind of like a coffee mall. We aggregate different coffee brands, accessories and products – while encouraging consumer reviews on each – to help you find the best coffee themed products.
We know there are a lot of coffee sites on the Internet. So what makes BeanBuzz different?
- We're not a coffee manufacturer or retailer trying to push a limited number of products. We don't care what brand of coffee or k-cup machine you might choose to buy. Our goal is to aggregate as many coffee products as possible for coffee consumers and give you a place to give uncensored feedback on them.
- We don't pretend to be experts – only fans. We're not the expert critic reviewing a movie. We're the average movie-goer. And we encourage feedback from other coffee lovers as well!
So how do we make the money to keep this site running (and awesome)? Some companies pay to advertise on the site. We also feature a ton of products. If you purchase any of the products through a link on our site, at no extra cost to you, we might receive a commission on the sale of that product. We're also working on developing a line of “BeanBuzz” coffee themed merchandise (mugs, shirts, and the like). One thing we can promise you though is that no advertiser or monetary relationship has any effect on the content of our site. We don't moderate your opinions for cash.
About the owner
Welcome! My name is Rae Hoffman, and I love coffee! Ok, wait – let me back that up. True confession: I had never had coffee until I was 29 years old. Coming off a soda addiction, I took up drinking coffee to deal with the caffeine headaches from quitting soda. I began drinking coffee sans sugar from the start, and the taste was an acquired one for me! I had no idea at the time that much like beer, there are thousands of different varieties of coffee. Some good, some bad, some amazing, some horrid and the same coffees might qualify for different labels depending on personal taste. I'm no barista; Like most of you, I simply love coffee.
About a year ago, I began drinking black coffee, and that's when I truly started to be able to fully taste the differences between various coffees. Suddenly, I was trying every different kind of coffee I could get into my hands. I also started experimenting with grinders, k-cup machines, various brewers, etc. I decided to launch BeanBuzz.com to share my various experiences with all things bean!
