“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Sturm Foods, Inc.

Light or Dark roast coffee? Which is better?

Light-and-Dark-Coffee.jpg

Coffee, like almost everything, is highly a matter of taste. Once you get to the point where you are; 1. grinding your coffee fresh each morning (I use a conical grinder and do not know how I survived without one) and making the brew within 10 minutes of grinding. 2.

Measuring out the perfect coffee to … [Read more...]

I searched … [Read more...]

Tassimo Coffee brewer

Jason has been dreaming of having a Tassimo T20 to call his own for a long time now, so when I got the opportunity to review one I jumped at the chance. It arrived and we didn't even wait a second to open it! It was so gorgeous, nothing like our old coffee pot which we tried to hide in the corner where no one could see it, we are proudly displaying the T20 on our bar where everyone can see it. This is the only coffee pot that I have ever been able to figure out, it is so simple; you fill up … [Read more...]

Grounds for Your Garden

{Grounds for Your Garden}This year instead of going out and buying expensive, stinky fertilizer for your garden this year why not try a natural *FREE* solution? Starbucks runs a program called “grounds for your garden” where they save coffee grounds and give them to anyone who asks for the for free! No purchase necessary. Ground coffee is high in nitrogen which makes it very good mulch for your vegetable garden as well as your flowers. The color is really deep, nearly black and looks fabulous … [Read more...]
