Stephen Rapoport of Pact Coffee, the subscription service that delivers freshly roasted coffee in the post, picks some favourite sites.
STEPHEN'S FAVOURITE SITES
Medium - One of my most visited websites when I’m looking for downtime. Just fantastic, thoughtfully written content. I tend to avoid any kind of current affairs or news (with the exception of business) and I find Medium always manages to provide something insightful and interesting to read.
Twitter - The best place for me to get a realtime view of what people think about Pact. I read our full Twitter stream every single day, once in the morning and may be twice more during the day.
CoffeeHit - A fantastic place to buy coffee gear. Excellent for the budding at-home baristas. It is far too easy to part with your cash on this site!
London Fixed Gear and Single-Speed - A great place for cycling fanatics to get together and geek out about all things cycling. It has a really engaged community, organising rides, offering advice and that kind of thing.
BBC Good Food - I probably visit it three or four times a week for recipes and I use it to think about what to make for dinner. It has led to my large collection of recipe books gathering dust and I’ve now got an iPad on a stand in the kitchen for this very purpose.
Nudge - For me they have some of the the most relevant content about what’s going on in London and it is a fantastic place to find out about interesting new venues and restaurants that I wouldn’t ordinarily have found or tried.
Favourite App - We have an app for Pact customers that I love. It that acts like a panic button (iOS only at present) and you just hit it before 1pm if you want your coffee to arrive the next morning. A wonderfully simple solution to the frustration of running out of coffee at home. CityMapper is another one that I find completely invaluable and it is on regular use on my phone.
