I like the website, Make Decent Coffee, for a lot of reasons, but usability is up there at the top of the list. From the moment you get to the homepage, where you’re given a choice whether to buy coffee or to get help sorting through your options, to getting assistance choosing the perfect coffee for a V60 preparation, to the numerous how-to guides and films, Make Decent Coffee—a UK-based company—is about more than great coffee; it’s about exploring coffee to find the one that’s greatest for YOU.
I quite enjoy Make Decent Coffee’s how-to guides, which are easy to follow, and also the films, some of which are educational (like how to make a Cafetiere) and some of which are nothing but fun (Alternative Uses for Instant Coffee, anyone?).
I have a friend in Leeds who loves coffee but doesn’t get out much to the local shops doing coffee right. So I sent her the link to Make Decent Coffee. She enjoys fantastic coffee but she’s not a connoisseur (she has 4 kids, so she’s more of a small-human connoisseur). She has been loving Make Decent Coffee because it makes it easy for her to 1) Learn about coffee and equipment use; 2) Buy coffee and equipment; and 3) Be engaged and entertained by a well-designed, well-written site with a sense of humor.
So good on you, Make Decent Coffee. We’re glad you’re here.
