Wolfgang Puck Job Openings


Hi all ! I hope you have missed me so much !!! I have been away on vacation for a week. I stayed local and was with my family mostly. Got to see my mom, dad, sister. All of my favorites. Shopping, dinners, movies. Just having a great week with no responsibilities, no work, just fun. It went so fast and now I miss them all already :( But there is always another week right.
I know that this economy and time for the world is so very hard. People who have P.H.D's can't even find work, or get a job. If you live in any of the areas listed and are interested in working for Wolfgang Puck. Head on over to facebook. Like Wolfgang Puck, and then go to WP JOBS. There isn't much but there are 5 jobs listed. Maybe one is in your area. Wolfgang Puck is an amazing Chef and has a huge line of coffee and K-Cups that's why I wanted to feature his job opportunities. I wish there were more jobs open in the coffee industry and more advertised online as well.
Have you guys ever applied or seen any jobs in the " coffee field " . If so where ? Please share I'd love to hear your hints. And I hope this helps someone out there who is struggling. Stay strong and never give up hope ....

coffeeforless.com website & blog Review


Hello my caffeinated readers. There have been many blogs, websites, and companies that I have come across in my quest of all things coffee. I have reviewed them ( mostly only the good ones :) My newest gem is coffeeforless.com. I will be doing a thorough review . I will let you know why I give it my seal of approval and most definitely 5 coffee cups out of 5 on my Coffee Diva review scale.

So the perks: Well first off they are such an extensive website. They offer millions of K-Cups. All you could ever think of. Varieties that I've never even heard of! They don't sell wimpy counts either. Only 24 count each for the K-cups. That is important in them providing the best quantity for your money. They have free shipping all orders $45 or more. 100% price match guarantee which honestly I've never seen any other coffee website offer that. Loyalty points for every dollar you spend. Their top 5 picks. And contests ( which I just actually won on Friday can't wait to get my box of Kcups ! ) .


Another feature which also makes them unique and why I noticed them is they have their own blog. They write the same type of articles as I do. Fun coffee facts. Tons of reviews on machines, coffee, recipes, etc. This is genious because a lot of folks are on the fence about certain flavors/products. But here they can go on the blog. Check out the reviews from people just like them. Then go right back to the website and order what they think sounds like a great choice. This is definitely a smart feature for the customer and the retailer.

I even noticed an educational section " coffee lingo" which has every term you can think of. A lot of people out there are like me (or not) who have their own coffee blogs and they know "hey I'm not a barista". But, I want to make the best coffee I possibly can. Be more educated on a subject I love. Sometimes in doing this we need to know how exactly to make it. What is the difference between a Lungo & an Americano ?? Well they have all the terms. There is also another area that is similar that explains all the coffee words, definitions, and ratios of coffee to milk you need to know in the "coffee vocabulary " section. Now you can be a coffee snob know it all thanks to coffeeforless' blog :)

So to bring my whole point round to third: This is an awesome website & blog. If you love coffee like I do, own your own machine ( which who doesn't) , love tea, hot chocolate, or really anything else you can think of. This will not only be a great site for you to order from. But also, to read regularly and be a fan of on facebook as well. We coffee people have to stick together you know !

Lavazza Modo Mio

Mamma Mia ! Check out this beautiful baby from one of my favorite espresso brands Lavazza. This is the real deal authentic espresso machine. It comes with single serve capsules like many machines now a days. I wish I could get this one. Then again I already have a Keurig & a Nescafe Dolce Gusto Circolo. So, I should probably stop ! lol Take a look at this beauty . Looks like it is available in the UK. But there are similar machines that are available in the U.S.
Did you guys ever see this machine before ? Do you own an espresso machine ?

Free Tea Sample !

Happy Saturday all! I just came back from running some errands and doing a little shopping. Boy is it humid and yuck out ! I am starting to hate the summer. The high Con Ed bills. The sweat. The bad allergies. The constant feeling of being stuck indoors with the AC on because you can't breathe outside. Ugh. Well I am back home, and I really have no plans to step foot outside anymore lol Here is a great free tea sample for you to perk up your Saturday.
Just log on to Facebook and like " Tea Forte' ". They are sending a 3 pack sample. I can't wait to try. They are Fair Trade Certified and USDA Organic. That makes me love it even more :)

Friday the 13th Run Down !~!

Happy Friday the 13th all! Are you guys superstitious ? Me either. I just love to do some thing fun like watch scary movies on Friday the 13th ! Well I have been a busy bee as usual all morning and afternoon. I had tons of laundry to catch up on, which wasn't a great idea being that it's about 90 degrees out here in N.Y.C and very humid! But, this is my job full time to be a housewife. And an amazing one at that ( if I say so myself ). I do feel a bit light headed, so I will sip some iced water/coffee while I do the Friday run down for all things fun and coffee related !
How do you guys beat the heat when it's hot ? What are your coffee related tricks to cooling down , I'd love to hear !


If your on facebook, hit up Coffee For Less, they have Fun Fridays going on with great coffee trivia as well as 3 lucky winners that will get a free box of K-Cups! I definitely could use more I'm running low .

DeLonghi MKE6 Electric


I had a small Moka pot that I used for one cup of espresso about a year ago, but then it broke ( I am such a clutz don't even ask). I always wanted to get another one just to have. I used to make my espresso on them. It worked well. Mine didn't make to much foam but on a good day, with the right espresso it did taste very authentic. It's definitely the european way to have coffee/espresso. Well I found a cute machine that is the moka pot, but electric. So it's virtually dumb proof it seems. I would love to try this out one day. Here is a cute how to video I found on youtube.
Hope everyone is staying cool in this heat wave. I pretty much am staying in . Too hot to move or do anything really. I hate the summer because on very hot or humid days there is nothing to do other than sit in front of a fan and drink iced water ! I am so much for suited for the fall/winter. I go out everyday even in the snow. It's so much more refreshing. Well stay safe all and have a great weekend :)

Revv Kcup Review




It's another hot one here in N.Y.C . But you still can't stop me from drinking my coffee or reviewing it for that matter :) I have a new review for you guys. I just recentlly tried the Revv kcup variety. It's from Green Mountain and it's supposed to be their bold coffee. I tried the regular one which has 100% Arabica coffee. I thought it was a really nice strong cup. Definitely a bold flavor. Smooth. No flavor undertones or nutty flavor to me. But for me it was a bit too much, and it had a very bitter after taste which I did not like. I would give it about 3 coffee cups out of 5. I didn't notice a difference such as giving me any more energy. But if you love bold coffee or drink it black this one might be for you. Still on the fence if I would buy this again .
Have any of you tried the Revv kcup ? Did you enjoy ?
