Great Coffee Gifts - Capresso Grinder & Percolator [Review & Giveaway]



For the longest time, I have wanted to try out a percolator. I remember growing up we would go to this Italian restaurant that had the BEST percolated coffee. You could just smell the good coffee in the restaurant when it was being made. So when I had the chance to review this percolator by Capresso, I couldn't wait to tell you about it.

Let me tell you that if you are a coffee lover, or know one, this is an excellent site to visit to get some great coffee gift ideas. Like, really. They offer EVERYTHING you need for your coffee fix from grinders, to espresso machines, to milk frothers, to coffee makers. And it's awesome quality stuff.

So when I set up the percolator, it was a bit of a process of figuring out what was best for me. My tip is - more coffee, less water. I tried to go by the suggestion by ended up with pretty weak coffee. I like really strong coffee, actually. So I chose ground well dark roast coffee and made sure to fill it as much as I could (but left a little room at the top) and filled it up to ten cups of water.

THAT made good coffee. I really enjoyed this so much and it is such a special experience to make this type of coffee. It's rich, actually. It's a different taste than when you use an espresso machine or drip coffee.

If you have been looking for a percolator, you can purchase this 12 cup percolator by Capresso by visiting this link. It's available right now for $69.99.


The other item I reviewed was this Ceramic Burr Grinder. Oh my goodness I love this thing! For a long time I would just use this smaller kind and do just two batches of coffee with the grinder .So this one, you fill the top lid with coffee beans and grind it up. You pull out the container and voila - coffee! It's a great to me, because I can just fill the beans up and press the button and walk away while it grinds up. It only stops when the container it fills into reaches the top. My only tiny complaint is that is a tad messy when you take off the lid, but not that much. My favorite feature is that you only have to do ONE round of grinding (I usually make a full 12 cups of coffee).

If you are interested in this grinder, make sure you visit this link and purchase it now for $59.99.

Capresso offers so much for the coffee lover and I highly recommend that you take a look at all of their amazing items and consider their stuff for a holiday gift! Like them on Facebook for updates and Twitter as well.

  1. I've had my eye on the MT900 10-Cup Rapid Brew as maybe my next coffee maker. But I have a soft spot for a percolator---percolated coffee tastes wonderful.

Vitamin C Serum - Add This To Your Morning Beauty Routine [Review and Giveaway]

What is your morning (or evening) beauty routine? For me, I'm usually so tired at night that if I remember to wash my face, it's an enormous deal. But in the morning, I pay so much more attention to my skin. I always put on coconut oil of some kind, but lately, I've been adding a new addition to my routine - Vitamin C Serum.

I've heard about the benefits of using a Vitamin C Serum for a while now and jumped at the chance to try it out and see the kind of impact this had on my skin.

I have been using the Amara Organics Vitamins C Serum 20% (with Vitamin E and Hydraulic Acid) Serum for a couple of weeks now. One thing that stood out to me was how gentle this was on my skin. It wasn't harsh at all. I use it daily each morning and follow it up with  a moisturizer.

Vitamin C Serum is supposed to reduce signs of aging. I'm only 28 so I'm not sure that I have a lot of evidence of aging to worry about just yet. This is also supposed to brighten skin, repair damage…

Lotus Foods Rice Review and Giveaway

​​

I tend to eat quite a bit of rice in my diet. First, because it's a healthy grain. Plus, I'm also gluten-free and it's a good grain for me to have that won't negatively impact my body.
So I usually purchase one particular type of rice brand, so I was really eager for the chance to try out a new kind. I tried out rice by Lotus Foods. You may have seen them in the store or heard of them before! 
What makes Lotus Foods different? Well they work towards improving the lives of the farmers they work with first of all. They use what is called a "System of Rice Intensification." It's a way of allowing farms to "double and triple their yields while using 80-90% less seed, 50% less water, less or no chemical inputs." Basically, more rice, less water. So I tend to be a visual learner, so if you want to know more about what this means, watch this really short video below:

They also partner with small scale farmers, which I think is amazing and I really …

Crazy Richards Peanut Butter Review & Giveaway

I absolutely love peanut butter. Really, I mean peanut butter is such a huge part of my diet. And you know, I really appreciate when peanut butter has simple ingredients. Peanuts. Salt. And that's it. I don't like added oils and I'm not TOO big of a fan of flavored peanut butters. Although I'd never turn down chocolate peanut butter (if I found the right blend!).
Anyways, I had the chance to try out some peanut butter by a company called, "Crazy Richards." Crazy Richard's Peanut Butter has been around a while. It was formed and combined by two Richards about 30 years ago and was recently passed along to the newest generation.
Well, I got the chance to try out their peanut butter - creamy and crunchy. I loved it. Here's a weird thing I love with peanut butter - whole milk vanilla Greek yogurt with blueberries! Sure people put peanut butter in smoothies, but I scoop out some of my favorite vanilla greek yogurt into a cup and put it in the freezer with …
