A Brief Blog Profile: Sprudge
Sprudge presents coffee news and culture from its home base in Portland, Ore.
Co-founded by Zachary Carlsen and Jordan Michelman, it now features an impressive list of coffee writers and contributors.
So what’s a “sprudge?”
“Sprudge is a made-up word for the coffee crumbs, blotches and splats present on a barista’s clothing and shoes after a long shift on bar,” the blog says. “We’ll use it in a sentence: “Listen, you finish dividing up the tips, I gotta go get this sprudge off my shoes. ‘Sprudge’ is also a portmanteau of the words ‘espresso’ and ‘Drudge.’”
A couple of posts caught my eye on Sprudge, including In Washington, DC, The Wydown Goes From Pop-Up to Permanent and Melt Down: The Many Frozen Coffee Treats of Bubby’s NYC.
Then there’s this fun post: 11 Reasons to Date A Coffee Roaster. Excellent. Who wouldn’t want to date a person who smelled like coffee and always brought home free coffee?
