About EnjoyJava

EnjoyJava.com was founded in 2007.

Back then, the site was about JavaScript – a complicated programming language. When that project didn’t work out and was abandoned, we gave it new life as a coffee blog. (After all, who could enjoy javascript? But coffee – well this was made to be enjoyed…).

In case you’re wondering, here’s why coffee is called java.

dena and bryan hainesThis has been a project that Dena and I have talked about for a long time. We are both coffee lovers and bloggers. This seemed like the perfect fit.

And thus EnjoyJava: The Coffee Blog was born.

Here's how we make our coffee:

Here is the gear we use everyday as we make strong, rich coffee at home.

Depending on the day, we make our coffee in one of three methods.

  • Espresso Maker: Breville Cafe Roma. This is a (relatively) inexpensive espresso maker that makes a quality shot. It has a small footprint, taking up little space on our counter. This was a gift from Bryan's parents.
  • Drip Coffee Maker: Ninja Coffee Bar with Stainless Steel Carafe. This unit makes good drip coffee. It also has an insulated carafe, keeping coffee hot without making it gross - like those little burner plates on most coffee makers. Dena's go-to every morning.
  • Stovepot Moka Pot: Bialetti Stovetop Moka (Espresso) Pot. This is Bryan's favorite for first coffee of the day.
  • Coffee Grinder: Cuisinart Coffee Burr Grinder. We've been using this grinder for many years and it still grinds consistently. This was a gift from our daughter.
