Cover of the Coffee Crimes guide to making perfect coffee.

Friends of Coffee Detective.

This is not just a page of links to other sites about coffee. This is a page devoted to companies, individuals and sites which have in some way shown kindness or generosity to the Coffee Detective site.

First, thanks to a few of the companies that have sent us coffee.

Simple Industries - Purveyors of the very finest 100% Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee, and good friends too.

The Roasterie – Thanks for the great coffee, and for the espresso cups! (Still using them.)

Idaho Roasting Company - Thanks for the super-fresh roasted beans!

Arbor Day Foundation - Many thanks for the organic, Fair Trade, Bird-Friendly coffees.

Community Coffee - Thanks for the big bags! Really enjoying your coffees.

(There are plenty of others who deserve a mention. See all our coffee reviews.)

And a big thanks to the people-behind-the-sites who take time to chat and share their knowledge of coffee and the coffee business.

Coffee Companion - by the always excellent, knowledgeable and generous Kevin Sinnott.

Daily Demitasse - A site about coffee I just started following.

CoffeeNate - By fellow coffee traveler and writer, Nate Smith.

The Espresso House - The online store for quality espresso makers & coffee accessories.

Our Coffee Barn - A great source for both green and fresh roasted coffee beans. They really are roasting fresh batches every day..

Espresso Perfecto - A site I came across recently that does a really good job of explaining home espresso making.
