Tim Horton's Travel MugFirst of all: grab yourself a cup of coffee…or tea. I will do the same :o)

My father used to sell Fair Trade coffee and tea from our house. And in our church. Tea was usually the beverage of choice early in the morning and mid-way through the afternoon. Coffee was reserved for late mornings and early evenings.

But that was back in the Netherlands.

Now that I have emigrated to Canada I am experiencing a whole new coffee culture (not as much a tea culture). The long lineups at Timmy’s (Tim Horton’s) never seize to amaze me, and coffee houses are found everywhere. This is why you see the average Canadian, probably North-American, with a travel mug glued to his or her hand. It is indeed… a culture. One that I am not 100% accustomed to yet. But I think that’s OK.

But the phenomena of tea (the second most drank beverage, after water) and coffee (the second most traded commodity, after oil) have gotten me in their grip. I want to learn more about these healthy and refreshing brews.

Are you ready to go on a journey with me?

Who am I?

Sorry; forgot to introduce myself.

My name is Nardo Kuitert, but usually I say “just say Nardo” as people usually have a hard time pronouncing my last name. I am an Internet consultant with my own company U-C WEBS, which is operating from Fergus, Ontario, Canada. Apart from Coffee and Tea I am also interested in everything that has to do with starting your own business, and I also find it therapeutic to share some of my online research with you on AskNardo.com, where you can read about a lot of how to’s and how do I’s.

Contact me if you have a question, of just leave a comment underneath a page or a post.
