A little review on Green Mountain Roasters' K-cups from Cross Country Cafe Blog. Might help you choose a roast for yourself.



Over indulge at the holiday's ?? Who didn't ? You might want to start using this every day to speed up your metabolism and get you back on track to eating healthy. I know I need that . Celestial Seasoning's Metabo Balance Green Tea.


So did you guys get any coffee related gifts for the holidays ??
Did you give any coffee related gifts ? I gave my husband two boxes of K-Cups, a bag of coffee from a place he loves in the city, and a brand new mug. ( He wanted a really big one lol)

BOGO at Starbucks , Gifts, And More








Good evening coffee & tea family members. Are you still searching for great gifts for your loved ones ? I actually went to my local Marshall's today to buy my hubby some more gifts. Needless to say it was packed! I had patience and just told myself take your time, don't let people make you crazy. So I did that and got some great things for him. I get so happy buying stuff for my husband . He works harder than anyone I know and has been through so much with the passing of his mother. So I am trying even harder this holiday to make it really special. Do you guys find cute gifts at Marshall's ? It's safe to say I'm pretty much addicted to that store lol !

So here is the coolest gift to get a coffee snob on your list ...

A hand recognition coffee maker ?? This is nuts. Check it out ... http://enpundit.com/hand-recognition-coffee-maker-remembers-exactly-how-you-like-your-coffee/

I'm Back..



Hello all. I am sorry for the absence of my posts. There was a bit of a tragedy in my family. My mother in law passed away two weeks ago of cancer. It has been a very horrible time for me and my husband, but every day we are trying to get on with life the best we can. Thank you for always reading and supporting me. I will be back to posting, and back to work now. I hope you all are enjoying your holiday season. .
