Earlier this year, I was approached to be one of eighteen writers for The Coffee Guide… Fast forward six or so months and here we are, with the published work itself!
Coffee is a funny thing isn’t it? You can spend the same amount on a bad cup of coffee as you would on a good cup of coffee. I’d like to think that my contributions to this guide will save the wider community from ever drinking another bad cup.

It is also super exciting seeing my name in print!

Jennifer is the founding blogger of I Ate My Way Through (originally, Jenius.com.au). Growing up in the multicultural melting pot of Sydney’s Inner West as a second generation Australian (of Vietnamese refugee parents of Teochew Chinese ancestry), Jen has always had a deep curiosity about global cuisines, culinary heritage and the cultural assimilation of immigrants. For Jen and her family, food is always at the centre of all celebrations, life events and milestones. A lover of the finer things in life, as well as cheap eats, her blogging ethos is all about empowering and inspiring people to expand their culinary repertoire. When not running her two companies (she is also the Managing Director of The Bamboo Garden online marketing agency), Jen can be found exploring old-world charms at vintage markets and delving into local eats around the world. She has a weakness for fried chicken.
  • Would definitely be interested in where to find good coffee in Sydney. Melbourne can’t put a foot wrong, Brisbane is reasonably crap and overpriced (except the Valley and west end) Canberra is hit and miss.

  • Nice work with the contribution to this publication!
    I’m curious to know how you involved with this book. Were you assigned different places to review? Ask for a list of recommendations?

  • oooh what a wonderful thing to be involved in!

    Thanks Simon! We were assigned a list of places to review (but of course we also made recommendations throughout). Each place is cross-reviewed to ensure consistency.

    Thanks Lisa! It was a fantastic experience 🙂

    There’s a Melbourne version of The Coffee Guide 2011 too, and it sounds like Brisbane & Canberra needs one!
