2011’s most popular posts

by JulieCraves on December 31, 2011

What might a stroll through the Coffee & Conservation 2011 referrer logs and stats tell us about what coffee readers are interested in ?

Here are the top 10 posts of 2011:

  1. Keurig reusable coffee filter for single cup brewers
  2. Refilling Keurig K-cups
  3. Solofill Reusable coffee filter for Keurig K-Cup brewers
  4. McDonald’s coffee in the U.S.
  5. What is shade grown coffee?
  6. Refilling K-cups, take 2: The My-Kap reusable lid
  7. What does a great cup of coffee cost?
  8. Coffee growing in China
  9. Top 5 indicators of sustainable coffee
  10. Trader Joe’s coffee

Okay, so people who come here are obsessed with Keurig brewers, and ways to avoid K-Cups. Not apparent until you click through to the posts is the fact that none of them was actually written in 2011. I’ll take that as a sign that I have a deep bench. Considering more recent history, here are the most popular posts I wrote this past year:

  1. Ekobrew: another alternative to K-Cups
  2. K-Cups are now recyclable! Not really.
  3. Greenwash alert: Nespresso capsule recycling
  4. How ”wild” is Ethiopian forest coffee?
  5. Coffee growing at home

Hopefully, the cost-conscious, single-serve brewer folks pick up some other worthwhile information while they are here. The following list is what I consider to be the most important or interesting of 2011, the ones I hope people read:

  1. 4C Code of Conduct: marginal standards for corporate coffee
  2. Cloud forest coffee at Finca El Jaguar
  3. How much does eco-certification cost?
  4. Folgers owner: not waking up to sustainability
  5. What does “organic” really mean?

I have a couple more lists coming up: my annual review of the cost of all the great coffee I drank in 2011, and my favorite coffees of the year and what they told me about my tastes.

Happy New Year!
