The ingredients of Meyer Lemon Coffee Cake:
For the Streusel
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
6 ounces ( 3/4 cup) cold unsalted butter
3/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
1 teaspoon coarse salt
For the cake:
5 Meyer lemons, cut into paper-thin slices, ends discarded
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
4 ounces (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for pan
1 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons finely grated Meyer lemon zest (from 4 to 5 lemons)
2 large eggs
For the Glaze:
1 cup confectioners' sugar
3 to 4 tablespoons Meyer lemon juice
1. Make the streusel: Mix together flour, brown sugar, and salt. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut butter into the flour mixture until small to medium clumps form. Cover, and refrigerate until ready to use (up to 3 days).
2. Make the cake: Cook lemon slices in a medium saucepan of simmering water for 1 minute. Drain, and repeat. Arrange lemon slices in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9-inch angel food cake pan. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Beat butter, granulated sugar, and lemon zest with a mixer on medium speed in a large bowl until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. With the mixer running, add eggs, 1 at a time, then the vanilla. Reduce speed to low. Add the flour mixture in 3 additions, alternating with sour cream.
4. Spoon 1/2 of the batter evenly into cake pan. Arrange 1/2 of the lemon slices in a single layer over the batter. Spread remaining batter evenly over the top. Cover with the remaining lemon slices in a single layer. Sprinkle the chilled streusel evenly over the batter.
5. Bake until cake is golden brown and a tester inserted in the center comes out clean, about 55 minutes. Transfer pan to a wire rack set over a baking sheet, and let cool in pan for 15 minutes. Run a knife around the edges of the pan, and remove outer ring. Let cool on rack for 15 minutes. Run a knife around the center tube. Slide 2 wide spatulas between the bottom of the cake and the pan, and lift cake to remove from the center tube. Let cool completely on rack.
6. Make the glaze: Just before serving, stir together confectioners' sugar and lemon juice in a medium bowl. Drizzle over cooled cake, letting excess drip down the sides. Let glaze set before slicing, about 5 minutes.

Almost all true coffee fans certainly ever drank a cup of cappuccino, a coffee-based beverage creation. Cappuccino has long been popular all over the world and is sure to be a menu in a variety of local cafes and in the fancy coffee shops.
Coffee has come a long way since the days of adding hot water to a teaspoon of instant granules, and the cappuccino you enjoy at your local cafe is much more achievable at home.
There are many myths in the world of an event, or the background of other things, as well as cappuccino. A myth says that the cappuccino's silky magic is beyond the grasp of home baristas. It's just too delicate of a dance, best left to the cafe.
But the reality of cappuccino as mentioned in illy.com turns out that the great cappuccino is available to delight discerning coffee lovers, right in their own kitchens. It takes some practice with water, steam and foam, along with the right equipment on your counter top. You'll want an espresso machine with a built-in steaming wand.
Another Myth: the foam on an Italian cappuccino is different, but the Truth; they don’t heat the foam as much. It’s lighter and cooler than ours. Because of this and the fact that they use less milk overall, coffee lines in Italy move super fast. You never wait more than a couple minutes.

If you want to drink coffee outside the home, whether you are going to drink coffee in the coffee shop or at a fancy cafe? It's Difficult to say where we will get a nice cup of hot coffee. Each person has their own reference. Before you step into a coffee shop, perhaps you would imagine a delicious coffee, friendly service, good atmosphere, so you feel satisfied.
If you could walk into a country or city, if you will also find a well-known coffee shop there or you prefer the coffee shop of a franchise that had also been there in your town? Of course you have to imagine the same sense, as a franchise product must be the same throughout the world. Each franchise has a system and expects the same services wherever they are.
I suggest you to visit a local coffee shop that is not associated with any franchise, except the coffee shop are not in your town. It’s Certainly interesting to try its flavor.

The coffee we drink comes from coffee beans grown in Ethiopia, Bali, Gayo, Java, Uganda and some other areas. Coffee cannot be grown in the four seasons such as Japan, Europe, USA, Korea or Australia. Coffee plantations in the area are not all owned by rich farmers or large plantation companies. In general, they are small farmers, their land is not large, and so they need the support of governments and coffee lovers from around the world.
Government officials, big business, organizations and anyone can support coffee farmers by making policies more conducive to any coffee beans that they produce could be distributed fairly, good coffee purchases by mills, exporters, importers, coffee shop network owner , employers will most coffee shops coffee trade fairer for all parties. Famous celebrities such as actress, singer and world-class entertainers can also be a campaign to support coffee farmers.
