Coffee club membership is a joy for coffee loversWritten by Julie Carter
Coffee club membership is a joy for coffee lovers The coffee club concept is relatively new but is taking world by storm. Reward yourself or your friends and relatives with coffee clubs by joining up and saving loads. Each month, you will get a shipment of coffee delivered direct to your door. This is a great way to taste new coffees, sample different varieties, find a brew that you really like and ultimately avoid a trip to store to buy your favorite coffee. Automatic shipment is very convenient, especially if you like your coffee first thing in morning because this means you will never run out when you need it most.
Clubs are now springing up all over America and different clubs have different offerings so it is easy to find one that suits you. Most clubs offer a coffee of month and/or your choice of flavors. With flavors you can choose what coffee you want delivered each month, or allow company to surprise you. Depending on club, it could be your favorite flavor, or a different flavor every month. Amounts vary from company to company also. Usually it is one pound per month, but you can order more if you desire.
Some clubs even offer newsletter subscriptions with informative articles about month's featured coffee as well as coffee recipes and helpful hints about coffee making and removing coffee stains. When you join one of these clubs, you are also usually entitled to a members-only discount. If company has a sale or special offering, generally club members will be first to hear about it through newsletter. In addition to coffee, gourmet coffee clubs sometimes include extras like coffee mugs or books with coffee recipes in them.
Champgne and Appetizers: Let the Celebration BeginWritten by Bogdan Voicu
Are you preparing a romantic dinner? A party? Want to feel great eating alone? Whatever reason, champagne is a definitely must. What to serve it with before main meal, though?
There are some appetizers that suit with champagne better than with any other beverage or alcoholic drink: caviar, as an example, is so well known it doesn't even require presentation.
Foie gras OK, liver. I just used French term that chefs will use; please don't shoot me for that. I mean, champagne is French, isn't it? Anyway, try goose or duck liver. This soft, smooth type of dish will certainly increase your drinking experience.
Raw Oysters A good combination but you should not use it if you prefer oysters with lemon or vinegar. These are serious taste decreases when regarding champagne.
Sushi Just a perfect combination. Almost everybody likes sushi and champagne will surely be catalyst to a great dinner or party.
