A Well Dressed Kitchen is a Happy Kitchen

Recently I was walking through Wal-Mart, wasting time, waiting for a prescription refill,… when it occurred to me that I had the perfect opportunity to scope out the kitchen linens for the coffee themed towels that I blogged about a while back. Remember that I already had the one off white hand towel, given by a friend for Christmas. Well…now I have these. : )

Two matching wash cloths, a red oven mitt, a brown with coffee design pot holder, a brown, a red and a blue hand towel. LOVE.

An also, the solid black and cappuccino with black striped towels that I already had. You can’t have too many hand towels, right? ; )

Can Coffee Grinds Be The New Fuel of the Future?

Written by Amber on April 17, 2010 – 1:25 pm -

Wouldn’t it be neat if the answer to the search for a perfect fuel source could be found in coffee? Maybe it can.

One group of students at the University of Missouri is experimenting with coffee grinds in an effort to process the oil from them into a biodiesel. Imagine a brighter future where we all do our part by drinking our cuppa joe every morning – or two or three or four- and that in turn keeps our cars running!

Wouldn’t that be cool? WHAT – one can dream, right? =)

What Kind Of Coffee Is That?

Written by Amber on October 10, 2009 – 2:08 pm -

Ever wondered what all those different coffee adjectives mean? Macchiato, breve, Americano – what?

This helpful article lays out the basic types in their traditional form. It gets tricky though, because different coffee shops may do things their own way. But if you go by these definitions, my favorite would be a latte or a cafe au lait. =)

A Coffee Drinker in Training

Today my 8 year old treated me to a pot of coffee – made entirely by herself. She even served up a cup with cream and sugar. I could get used to this.
