About Me


Thank you for checking my about page. My name is Alex and the editor for this site, CoffeeAbode.com.

My love story with Coffee started since college days, where I drank in substantial amount (probably in excess) to combat my deadly foes, the books.

Some Background About Me

Since then, my interest in the beverage itself grew with time and I began scouring places for all types of coffee. 

Like most, I started with common coffee-shops such as Starbucks, coffee bean (& tea leaf) and the likes.

In the beginning, I love ice blended coffees with loads of sugar to perk myself up - check out the latte blend if you haven't already =).

Then, I moved on to pure black coffee to taste the originality of the beans.

For some unknown reasons, I knew that I will progress much further with coffee. And I wouldn't stop at just getting a cup or two at coffee shops.

My Phin =)

Fast forward to more than a decade later, I moved on to making my own coffee fixes with espresso machines, drip coffee maker and even a Phin. 

Also, I LOVE TO TRAVEL. Add that to my love of coffee. When I do get the chance, I travel around the globe scouring different blends of coffees made by various people!

I have tried coffee in a plastic bag in Malaysia and coffee made by a Phin in Vietnam. You got it. There is no way I wouldn't buy a Phin to try my hand at it back at home.

Do you know that the Japanese actually love coffee as well? They even have a whole variety of instant drip coffee bags! And yes, I bought them as well
