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.

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

For as long as they can remember, the farmers who grow coffee between the steep volcanic peaks here started the annual harvest in late September — until this year An erratic rainy season forced the farmers of the Santa Anita La Union Cooperative in this small town in Guatemala’s highlands to start picking coffee in the final days of August.

“Instead of raining constantly and slowly, it is raining very hard for short periods of time. And the temperatures are hotter, so that means the fruit, the coffee, is ripening very fast,” said Mynor Huerta, who provides technical assistance to the cooperative, as rain clouds gurgled overhead. While this year’s early harvest may prove to be a climatic anomaly, researchers say that it could be a forecast for coffee in the region.

The same conditions that have made Central America home to some of the world’s finest coffees also make it susceptible to the effects of climate change. Its moderate temperatures are already rising, its predictable rainy season is becoming irregular, and pests and fungi could invade altitudes where they previously couldn’t live. Although seemingly minor, small increases in temperature and slight changes in rainfall are predicted to have major consequences in coffee growing areas. While the conditions might make high-quality coffees more abundant and cheaper for a few years, the price will eventually rise as availability sinks in the long term, researchers said.

As a result of climate change, Central America farmers might have to move their crops to higher elevations, where less land is less available.

“Farmers are going to have to try to squeeze onto that land,” said Rafael A. Diaz, a Costa Rican economist who is part of a four-country research project aimed at documenting the effects of climate change on small coffee farmers.

The changes could be devastating for farmers, who will eventually be forced to replace their coffee trees with another crop to survive. Coffee, the world’s second-largest traded commodity behind petroleum, supports around 25 million growers and 100 million people around the globe once family members are added.

At the Santa Anita Cooperative, farmers said they have already felt a change. Climatic evidence is supporting them. The weather center nearest their farms has recorded a .5 degree Celsius increase in temperatures and a 14 percent increase in average rainfall from the 1990s to the 2000s, according to data from the country’s weather ministry.

A recent study by the Center for Tropical Agricultural Research said just a 1 degree Celsius rise in Brazil’s Sao Paulo growing region, for instance, would cause a drop in coffee production worth more than $113 million.

Central America is one of the regions likely to get both hotter and drier in coming decades. In the short term, that could actually help the few farmers growing high-quality coffees at high altitudes.

“As a scientist it pains me to say it, but the conditions for coffee growing in many of the highland areas, where the best coffee is grown, could be better for coffee in the coming years,” said Edwin Castellanos, a scientist for Guatemala’s Universidad Del Valle, who is part of a team conducting the regional study.

Governments in the region have long urged coffee growers to move to higher elevations, where finer coffee can be grown.

“The coffee grown at those altitudes could have higher yields and it’s likely that the producers will be able to take advantage in the short term by growing those high quality coffees more abundantly,” he said.

However, less land is available at those altitudes. According to Anacafe, the Guatemalan coffee-growing association, only 2.5 percent of Guatemalan land is suitable for growing coffee, producing some 495 million pounds of beans. About 150 million pounds of that coffee was grown at elevations of lower than 4,500 feet above sea level, lands that are likely to be hit by climate change.

The farmers at Santa Anita, which sits about 4,000 feet above sea level, consider the changing temperatures a serious threat to their way of life.

“If we have to pick all the coffee in October and November, we won’t have enough help because our children will still be in school,” said Mariola Cifuentes, a coffee grower in the cooperative. “And if we can’t pick the coffee, it will fall [off the plant]. And we can’t afford that.” Cifuentes said the increase in temperatures has led to the spread of pests and of a fungus known as koleroga. As a result, the farmers — who raise Fair

Trade- and organic-certified coffee — have had to spray fungicides and pesticides more frequently.

“Dealing with these changes by spraying more fungicides or pesticides, because they are organic, is already costing these farmers more,” Huerta said.Scientists said the problem could be worse in the long-term. Farmers could combat some of the changes in humidity and temperature by using shade trees. In some cases, the trees could be trimmed to release trapped humidity. In others, more shade trees could be planted to cut down on the sun and heat that reaches the beans, Castellanos said.

But adapting their farms to the changing climate will only last so long. “It’s a problem of increased extremes,” Castellanos said. “Farmers in these regions will see hotter temperatures, longer periods of drought, more heavy downfalls, which can damage crops, and more storms.”

Well another summer is slipping by faster than I care to see happen, but with that comes a new round of special flavors that we have created.  This month we are releasing 4 new flavored coffees to add to our never ending list of flavors.

The four all fall into that Fall season flavors but are certainly good anytime of the year.

Toasted Marshmellow Flavored Coffee – WOW.. ever put a marshmellow in your cup of coffee?  If you haven’t you should it is awesome.  But you can never find a toasted one.  Somehow we have come up with the flavor of a finely toasted marshmellow and mixed it into the cup of coffee.  No more waiting for the marshmellow to melt, its in there.

Caramelized Pralines Flavored Coffee – Caramel with Pralines make for a perfect cup of coffee while sitting on the deck watching the sunset.

Farmhouse Apple Flavored Coffee – Apples fresh from the tree placed in your cup of coffee. A marvalous taste treat.

Caramel Toddy Flavored Coffee – Another caramel flavored coffee, is there anything that caramel doesn’t taste good with? If so we have not found it yet… look out for new caramel flavored coffees.

We keep comeing up with more and more flavored coffees. It simply astounds me. They go out for sample tastings where people with a taste for coffee hang out, and each month we come up with a few new flavors to add to the growing list of coffees we offer.

As always our flavored coffees are made with the same gourmet coffee we offer for sale elsewhere on our site, we do not use second rate beans in any of our coffees. So you get the Greatness of Hand selected gourmet beans and flavors that are made from all natural ingredients. Can it be any better?
Have a Great Cup of Coffee

A new study is out that says it is not the gourmet coffee that causes coffee breath but rather it is the milk and cream people use in their drinks. Cup of coffee a day keeps bad breath at bay
Apparently the cream and milk products produce and environment that the bacteria loves and that causes your bad breath, The study also says that coffee actually helps to reduce those nasty things that give you bad breath.
So now you know you drink your gourmet coffee, or flavored coffee, and your breath is better than if you didn’t. But if you add milk or cream look out coffee breath.
Hope everyone is enjoying the great summer we have had so far. While it could have been better up here in Minnesota, not much rain and not as warm as it normally is, but it has still been a great time to enjoy the great coffee.

Have a good one and now you have another reason to drink that cup a coffee each and every day.
