Coffee Growing – Dirty Jobs

Written by Amber on January 24, 2011 – 11:29 am -

Last night found me sick and laying listlessly on the couch browsing through Netflix. I decided to go with Dirty Jobs which, as it turned out, was a good decision because it reminded me that there are worse things in this world than migraine headaches. I could have a job scraping pigeon poo off rooftops, or I could be an ostrich farmer.

Though I’ve seen it before, I really quite enjoyed watching the following segment on coffee farming at Mountain Thunder. I’d forgotten how many coffee beans it takes just to make a pound of coffee!! Let that serve as a reminder that no coffee shall go unconsumed. Down with coffee wasting!

My Gevalia Order

Written by Amber on November 10, 2009 – 10:51 am -

Try Gevalia Coffee and Get a FREE Coffeemaker!

Well, I DID it! I finally placed the Gevalia order I’ve been talking about making. It’s been a long time since I’ve ordered their coffees and a long time since I have bought whole coffee beans so I was QUITE excited!

3 boxes, 3 bucks – who wouldn’t be?!

But would you BELIEVE I messed up my order? I was so focused on narrowing down 3 flavors that I neglected to select the BEANS option instead of the ground option. Oh yes, I did. I noticed it as soon as I got the email confirmation and I called to see if I could change the order before it went out.

Oh well, I suppose I’ll drink ground coffee this time. It is, after all, what I have been drinking for the past nine years or so. I’ll make sure I pay more attention on the next order!

None-the-less, I’m still excited. In 1-2 weeks I’ll receive their signature blend, Peruvian organic blend and the one I’m most anticipating…Dark Chocolate Truffle. MMMmmmmm. It was hard to choose: Dark Chocolate Truffle or Chocolate Raspberry, Peruvian Organic or Rainforest Organic?? So many decisions. I’ll have to take turns trying them all..

Creating a Coffee Themed Kitchen (Because I like it that much.)

Written by Amber on May 29, 2009 – 12:37 pm -

In December, my mom asked what I wanted for Christmas.

“I dunno…” I replied. I was very helpful. My mom commented, “regardless I’m buying you some new kitchen towels. I have SEEN yours. And they are SAD.”

So my mom gave me coffee themed valances, black & taupe kitchen linens and coffee themed coasters with the phrase that inspired this blog, “The end justifies the beans.” LOVE THEM. (I also bought these prints: 1,2,3,4.)

Though this did a lot to create a coffee bistro theme… this weekend we’re really going to seal the deal. Just wait and see what a little bit of paint can do….







(To be continued…)
