    The recession is brewing a new generation of coffee connoisseurs, with caffeine lovers buying blends to make at home.

    A survey by Euromonitor International on hot drinks in New Zealand showed the huge varieties of coffees on offer in supermarkets and specialist stores has prompted a booming cafe culture for higher quality coffee at home.

    The report reads: "The consumption of hot drinks, particularly coffee, is a longstanding habit for many consumers in New Zealand. Even in the face of an economic recession, consumers are unlikely to quit this habit ... many [are] beginning to consume increasingly sophisticated hot drinks within the comfort of their own homes."

    Our love for coffee is reflected in figures from Statistics New Zealand, which shows the amount we spend on importing coffee has jumped from about $32 million in 2000 to almost $50m in 2008.

    I was thinking of you when I posted that article KP. Are you still as creative with your coffee beans?
