Folgers New Filter Packs




BoOoO. Happy Halloween!! A trick for me would be waking up with no coffee !! Ahhhh ...Have a safe time all :)

Even though it seems like Keurig is taking over the world and single serve coffee in general ( you can even get single serve espresso machines) some people will not convert. And still love a pot of coffee. They love the drip coffee. Folgers has come out with a really neat way to brew easier with your drip machine, but in a single serve way. These new filter packs, let you pop them into your machine without scooping out coffee, and putting in new filters each time. Each filter holds enough for either 4-6 cups of coffee or 8-12. So you are still technically using your old school brewer, but with a slightly modern and more intelligent technology. Now all the great benefits of single serve coffee. The freshest brew every time. The perfect measurement is already done, and no clean up! Check out this demo video on the filter packs. I think these will become a hit and they will come out with even more flavors than what they have now.

Starbucks New Blonde Roast ..

Starbucks has been known for their dark strong bodied coffee.But now they are switching over to the light side (hoping for the saying that blondes have more fun ).Check out his video on what their thinking was behind the "blonde roast ". I think this will give Starbucks a wider coffee audience since a lot of people don't like dark roast coffee. So now there really is something for everyone at Starbucks.

Have any of you ever tried this yet ??

Green Mountain Columbian Fair Trade Review


Earlier this week I told you guys that I received a free sample box from (bzzagent.com & Green Mountain ). I had received the Colombian Fair Trade. Me and my husband both tried it this week and loved it. Between the flavor, and supporting local farmers and their crops, we were delighted. I usually am a big fan of Colombian coffee. I love Timothy's Decaff Colombian kcup. And now this is another Colombian I really enjoy. It is a medium roast coffee. Tastes nice and strong ( but not bitter at all). Great to have every day, or on a special occasion. I think it could hold up really nice against a dessert since it isn't flavored, and won't compete with the sweetness of cake or cookies, etc . It had a very smooth flavor. A lot of coffees put so many different notes into them, which can be good or bad. But when I drank this it was just so nice to have a really good plain coffee. I usually love french vanilla or hazelnut, but some days I want something nice and strong. This is exactly that. I give it 4 coffee cups out of 5. Definitely will buy again. This is my 6th or 7th Green Mountain variety that I have fallen in love with. I have another sampler pack to try as well, so I will be doing more reviews in the week when I taste :)

Have you guys ever tried Green Mountain Colombian ?? Did you enjoy ?? Do you like Colombian with other coffee's ??

So I have signed up on bzzagent.com, and I'm a bzzagent. Which pretty much means I am sent campaigns to review and try. It's a really great website. I've already gotten makeup, and high heel insoles.

Then all you do is share your opinions about the product whether you like or not, and you get a bunch of coupons as well for kcup packs ( which is a big help ). So log on to bzzagent and sign up, you never know what free things you might receive :) Green Mountain definitely rocks too. They always are giving away free samples on facebook.

Art & Coffee



Are you an art lover beside just being a coffee fanatic ? Well me too. I love all things beautiful. I guess partly that I am a make up artist I am drawn to color. Color in every form. I appreciate the green trees outside my window. A painting in a museum. Or now an intricate design on my cup of coffee. Illy is one of the most renowned coffee brands in Europe and they are bringing art & coffee together for a powerful fusion.
These cups were designed by Neapolitan world traveler Francesco Clemente. They are so fantastic. Each cup and saucer goes together as if they were attached. Such vibrant colors to match the bold flavors of Illy coffee. These would be a great treat in any ones kitchen. They are available online ( for a very high price tag , but again it is like a work of art) They would make you smile instantly and make you stop and remember the small things in life are the most special .. ...

What Fair Trade Really Means..



I know you all have probably seen every where now a days " fair trade " . Especially with coffee. And you might be wondering exactly what it means. Well fair trade is a very good thing. It means that the farmers were given a fair price for their harvest. That in turn means that you are helping a community develop by buying their product. That lets the farmers also make the best product possible. In this case, the best, most fresh coffee. Green Mountain is one of the biggest coffee companies that supports fair trade. They have over 25 varieties of fair trade coffee. Log on to facebook and friend Green Mountain, then click on the tab " fair trade " to read all about it. But be sure to show your support and purchase the coffee too ! Green Mountain is one of my favorite brands of Kcups. I love every one of their flavors.It makes me feel good that in some way I am helping a community far away. If you are ever lost, just look for the picture above. That is the fair trade certified symbol.
Have any of you purchased any fair trade coffee or products ??




Have a beautiful Wednesday ..

For my sister,my mother,my future daughter, my self and the future. There is Hope & Love. And I am sending it your way....
