The New Bodum Presso Glasses - Great insulated double walled glasses

Bodum has just come out with a new set of insulated double walled glasses  that just look great. The Presso comes with a Rubber band that goes around the middle of the glass for grip. Each set comes with two extra grips in differnet colors.

Bodum makes the best coffee stuff I have ever seen. All their glasses are hand blown and great quality. Now these glasses are 39.99 for a set of two on the website which sounds like a lot but let me tell you that they are well worth it.

I have some of their double walled hand blown glasses and they are great. They keep liquids hot and keep your hands from getting hot or burning the surface you put it on. I love mine. 

You can get them at Amazon right now with free shipping.

Some Interesting Coffee Ads

I found some fun and interesting Coffee Ads on Adsoftheworld.com. Just thought I would share them with you.

 

 - There first two are for Aroma Coffee. I think that the idea was good just think that the sight of the mug in the mouth is kind weird.

 

 

 - This ad is for Hambocino Caffe. That coffee looks pretty bar more like Motor oil. Just the way I like it.

 

 

- I Liked this one a lot its like your still in bed looking at the clock or you turned the clock sidways so you can read it in bed which I'm not sure. 

 

 

- Ad for free Wi-Fi at a coffee shop.

Interesting Teabag Danglers

Found this on BoingBoing but I thought I would be a Jerk and re post it. These little Teabag danglers come from a little cafe in Istanbul. I thought they were interesting even thought tea isn't coffee I still love my tea. I would so buy these things no matter what the tea tasted like.

Christmas Blend - Different every year but always good!

     It's that time again for the Christmas Blend to hit Starbucks's shelves once more as we head headfirst into this holiday season. I love the Christmas Blend it is always one of my favorites. Christmas Blend is a bold coffee that has a blend of Asia/Pacific beans and Latin American beans. The great part about the Christmas blend is that it has that bold flavor of the Asia/Pacific coffees as well as the crisp and clean finish of the Latin American coffees. Its really the best of both worlds. To boot some of the beans that make up the blend are aged which makes this Coffee really tasty. Christmas blend is known for its spicy and peppery undertones which means it goes great with spice food and it even compliments foods that have citrus in them. So go to your local Starbucks and get a cup. They typically brew it at least in the mornings. If not pickup a pound of the whole bean and make it at home.

 

enjoy.
