There was a time in my life when we didn’t properly support our troops when politicals sent them into harms way on our behalf.  Luckily that time has passed and we now realize that it is our people in political office who send our young men and women into harms way, and it was not their choice to go.

This has brought back Memorial Day as a Essential Holiday to honor and remember those who served and those who didn’t survive serving our country when we sent them into harms way.

I have a personal interest in Memorial Day.  As a former Navy Medic who severed with the Marines as a combat medic, I am proud of the service I performed for my country when I was but a young man.  As a person I was greatly improved by my time as a service man.  I was taught not only that I was part of a TEAM of people and that as a TEAM we were far more effective than anyone of us were as individuals.  Yet as an INDIVIDUAL I could affect the effectiveness of the TEAM.  Regardless of being a sailor on board a ship, or as a Corpsman on duty with the Marines, its all about what are your talents that will not only save your life but that of others around you.  I was also taught leadership skills which carried me into a fairly successful life as a private business owner.

Nearly in my footsteps is my Daughter.  She too followed dad into the medical field.  First as a Certified Nurses Aid, and then as an EMT and now working in a hospital in the Intensive Care Unit.  She carries on with the service to others in her work, she is learning the leadership skills and also how to act on a situation before being told what to do.  Working in Emergency Medicine there are times where you must evaluate the situation and take appropriate action in order to save peoples lives.

But this was not about me, or my daughter, this is about ALL the service people who have served our country.  They all serve out of a desire to help the people of the US and to learn the kinds of things only the Military can teach you.

So to all our men and women who have served or are serving.  We Salute you this weekend and honor your dedication and desire to serve the people of the United States.   May those who are serving now return safely to their friends and family.  Those that have not and the families who have lost loved ones we send our heart felt condolences and hope that you understand They gave their life to protect yours and what we all believe in, Freedom.

THANK YOU SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN EVERYWHERE, EVERYAGE, EVERYTHING YOU DID FOR US… Without you who knows where we would be right now, it certainly wouldn’t be where we are today.

Enjoy the weekend and take a moment to remember those who serve.

We have been hard at work with our coffees looking for new flavors and it seems that Cinnamon is the big winner this month with the addition of three new Cinnamon Flavored Coffees.

Each has their own uniqueness to them but they all run on the theme of Cinnamon.  Be it the Apple Cinnamon Strudel Flavor or the Blueberry Cinnamon Swirl, or the Cinnamon Hazelnut they each have unique qualities all their own.

Apple Cinnamon Strudel Flavored Coffee -  this coffee is like a Apple Strudel flavor that is so unique, it’s amazing how you can make a desert fill a cup of coffee.

Blueberry Cinnamon Swirl Flavored Coffee – this is a great mixture of Blueberry’s and Cinnamon accents on our cental american arabica gourmet coffees is a wonderful taste sensation.

Then we have the Cinnamon Hazelnut Flavored Coffee – well what can you say it has our unique Hazelnut along with a dash of cinnamon over our perfectly roasted coffees.

So if your looking for a flavored coffee I am sure you will find it in our listing, if not ask we might be able to come up with a flavor that you can call your invention.

Enjoy as we approach memorial day and please be safe.

Interesting research on the effects of Caffeine.

Researchers from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (Niddk) determined that patients with chronic hepatitis C virus (Hcv) who consumed more than 308 mg of caffeine daily had milder liver fibrosis. The daily amount of caffeine intake found to be beneficial is equivalent to 2.25 cups of regular coffee. Other sources of caffeine beyond coffee did not have the same therapeutic effect.

Details of this study are available in the January 2010 issue of Hepatology, a journal published by Wiley-Blackwell on behalf of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases.

Dr. Apurva Modi, the lead author, and fellow researchers at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases determined that for patients with chronic hepatitis C virus other sources of caffeine beyond coffee did not have the same therapeutic effect

Liver fibrosis, or scarring of the liver, is the second stage of liver disease, characterized by a degradation of liver function due to accumulated connective tissue.

From January 2006 to November 2008, all patients evaluated in the Liver Disease Branch of the National Institutes of Health were asked to complete a questionnaire to determine caffeine consumption. Questions were asked pertaining to: regular and diet soft drinks; regular and decaffeinated coffee; black, green, Chinese and herbal teas; cocoa and hot chocolate; caffeine-fortified drinks; chocolate candy; caffeine pills and medications with caffeine.

The study suggested that a beneficial effect requires caffeine consumption above a threshold of about 2 coffee-cup equivalents daily, but consumption of soda, green or black tea containing caffeine was not associated with reduced liver fibrosis.

Drink coffee to reduce wrinkles

A cup of instant coffee has shown promising results in smoothing out facial wrinkles and overcoming the need for various lotions.

The high content of collagen – the compound commonly found in many anti-wrinkle creams and also administered as “filler” by cosmetic surgeons to remove fine lines and wrinkles – can instantly smooth out wrinkles.

“Collagen is just one popular ingredient used to lend a more skin/beauty-friendly image to a product, and is increasingly found not just in beauty products but also in food and drink products – including coffee,” the Daily Express quoted David Jago, director of trends and innovation at market analysts Mintel.

Nescafe has recently launched a range of coffee sachets containing collagen. Aimed at women, the coffee contains coffee, skimmed milk and 200g of collagen. The product is as yet only available to buy in Singapore.

Health officials still doubt the effectiveness of such products, stressing that collagen simply breaks down by the gut before being excreted.

Tea and Coffee break(through) – as naturally dyed clothing reaches Uk

Tea and coffee lovers can soon wear their passion on their sleeve as a new range of clothing launches in the Uk – naturally dyed with their favourite drink.

Cotton Roots – experts in fairtrade and organic corporate clothing – has been brewing the latest technology from India which using natural dyes to “fix” colours, a process which has been impossible commercially before.

Designed to be eco-friendly, ethical, affordable and fun – it allows natural ingredients including coffee, tea, and also pomegranate, henna and onions to be used as dyes for a huge range of clothing and merchandise, which can be branded with company logos and slogans.

And by using products made in Fairtrade approved factories Cotton Roots can guarantee long-life garment quality, while minimising their environmental impact.

Cotton Roots founder Susan Waters says her inspiration came over a cup of tea at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Susan had stared at a fabulous clothing collection – hundreds of years old, yet still vibrant, rich and colourful. All the clothes had been dyed using traditional techniques, ancient in origin. She had seen how people throughout history had used plants, minerals, salts and sunlight to dye their clothes. Without the need for harsh chemicals they had achieved colours which were soft yet richer than modern dyes.

But it was the cup of tea that brewed the idea.

What if she could produce real “Tea” shirts – T shirts actually dyed with tea?

And what about real “tea” bags, and real “tea” towels. …A new piece of sustainable manufacturing from our past brought to life for everyone?

Prices start at around £6.00 per t-shirt. Other naturally dyed products include aprons, bags, polo shirts, sweatshirts, formal shirts and chef wear.

Time to grab that cup of gourmet coffee cause it’s getting cold.  Normally we do not see our first snow until the first week of Nov, but here it is the second week of Oct and we had our first snowfall.

Not to worry, it’s Minnesota, if you don’t like the weather then have a cup of coffee and it will change for ya LOL.  We are a tough lot up here and this little bit of snow (2 inches in some spots) do not keep us from cranking out our gourmet coffee, flavored coffee.   We are looking at coming out with some new flavored coffees here in a few days after a bit more testing both in house and some tastings we have upcoming.

People often wonder where do we hold these tastings?  Well we can’t tell people ahead of time cause we want real world tests so we pick a shop that we offer sell our coffee too and set up a free tasting.  We want to find out what just regular people think about the flavors we are offering, and it also brings a bit of interest to the coffee shop when we do a tasting.

So for those of you that are here on the internet looking for great gourmet coffee, and flavored coffees you can be assured that our flavored coffees have been tested and tested and tested again before we make them available.

Try to stay warm and if you need a cup of coffee, well brew one up
