Coffee + Chocolate x Heaven = Il Morso

Posted on Mon, Aug 31, 2015

Crafty, small batch start ups hold a very special spot in my heart. I admire an the leap of faith it takes to turn something you love into a career. When that something you love happens to involve coffee, I am all ears. Toss in a little chocolate and I am sold. All of these peeked my interest when I came across Il Morso coffee bars. 

Il Morso is a recently launched chocolate company featuring a 100% organic, fair trade product. Oh did I happen to mention that their chocolate is also mixed with amazing bits of espresso?  Ya, see why I was so intrigued?

It all started with a trip to Milan, Italy. The founders, Jason Berton and Jordan Schuster thought they were innocently enjoying their morning espresso but, little did they know...their life was about to change. When the espresso arrived at their table, it was accompanied by a lovely piece of dark chocolate. What happened next was the true starting point of this up and coming business...the waiter suggested that they submerge the chocolate in the espresso. Jason and Jordan fell in love with the taste and Il Morso was born.

Keurig K-cup Coffee Review-Cafe Bustelo Espresso Style

Posted on Wed, Aug 26, 2015

Cafe Bustelo is a newcomer to the Keurig K-cup arena. But, man o' man did they explode into the market place. For weeks, social media was abuzz with Cafe Bustelo lovers thrilled with the new K-cup option. I have to admit, I had not hear of this brand until then and was shocked by the loyalty of their drinkers. Of course this left me very anxious to try my first cup!

Cafe Bustelo is currently available in two roasts- Colombian and Espresso Style. I decided to sample Espresso Style first as the recent absence of Timothy's Rainforest Espresso in the United States (Timothy's is a Canadian company) left a hole in my Kcup espresso lovin' heart.

How to Make an Americano

Posted on Mon, Aug 24, 2015


Did you know that there is such a thing as American coffee? 

Ya, me either. 

I just kinda thought our coffee was the standard and there were a few rogue variations out there around the world. Just how sometimes we think we don't have accents in our neck of the woods until we head to another state and people are saying "Oh I love your Ohio accent!". Ohio accent, what? 

But, I digress. 

Turns out those Europeans sort of make fun of us a bit and our watered down version of coffee. But, a few seem to like it and have come up with their own way of serving American coffee called a Cafe Americano. Although it mimics our thinner cup of joe, it is always made with an espresso base resulting in a different flavor than most of us are used to. 

Cafe Americano ironically enough has actually become quite popular right here in America...ponder that one. But, who can blame us, it is chock full of flavor without being too bold. Even better, it is super easy to make!

How to Find Low Acid Kcup Coffee

Posted on Mon, Aug 17, 2015

There is nothing more satisfying than a delicious cup of fresh coffee. Morning, noon or night, coffee drinkers rejoice in this heavenly beverage that unites friends, brings us new life and provides much needed me time. But, there are still nearly 40 million people avoiding their favorite Kcup brew due to stomach issues. 

This is usually caused by the acid.

Coffee can be quite acidic, leaving some stomachs very unhappy. Now, let's not just assume that acid is a bad guy, it is actually a double edge sword. When done right, it gives coffee the bright, crisp, clean elements that all coffee lovers look for. But, for others, it can cause less then pleasurable results. If you are one of these poor souls, there is good news- you are probably just drinking the wrong kind of Kcup coffee. Although there are no Kcup coffee pods labeled low acid, there are a few that are inherently easier on the ol' tummy.
