If you do not have an ad here and wish to have one listed. Use the contact form and I will forward the price list and terms.

Also COMING SOON :: Tasty Coffee Blog Award

I wanted to add that soon I will be adding a coffee blog award restricted to those blogs who post coffee related information. Sites dealing with tea, pastries and such can be included as long as they also include a great deal of coffee subjects as well.

I will be posting more on this later on.

COMING SOON! Your Coffee Image Gallery


I’m working on the addition of an image gallery where I will let you upload your favorite coffee related photos/art.

You will be able to include coffee art, latte art, coffee cup photos, people drinking coffee….. on and on and so forth. :)

It will be a lot of fun and I look forward to seeing all your images!


McDonald’s Premium Coffee vs Burger King ‘Joe’ Coffee

I just returned from a long and uneventful trip to Virginia to see my son get married. I’m referring to the trip itself as being uneventful. Not the stay at our son’s home.

Since you really find you do not have the time to search for a great cup of coffee when traveling, we decided that it would be either McDonald’s Premium Coffee or Burger King’s ‘JOE’ Coffee. The coffee isn’t bad either. But there are some distinct differences in the two.

McDonald’s Premium Coffee: Generally fresh all the time and especially when traveling a busy highway. Always available since they rule the fast food industry and you can find one on every corner.

Grow Your Own Coffee Beans! The Coffee Tree

Note: I’ve activated commenting and am trying out the plug-in Spam Karma2 at the advice of Colin Thanks Colin!

Coffee Tree/Shrub Cherries BeansDid you know that you can grow your own coffee beans? Well, you can! Be advised that it takes four ’4′ years before you’ll be able to harvest your first, very own, beans or cherries if you will. On the plus side of things, during that four years and there on, you will enjoy a very pretty evergreen type shrub that sports a very pretty white flowers that have a pleasant frangrance.

Your first pickins’ won’t be much as the tree does not bear a full yeild until it’s 6th year there or about. Unfortunately, the tree will only produce it’s full yeild for about ten ’10′ years but can actually live for around sixty ’60′ years. So, long after you enjoy it’s fruits or berries, you will enjoy it’s beauty.

Maxwell House Coffee

Have you noticed (not that I drink too much common coffees) that Maxwell House brand seems to be all but disappearing from supermarket shelves? I don’t know if it has had anything to do with Katrina or not but I’ve noticed a steady decline in the Maxwell House stock from more than just a couple of stores! How odd is that?
