Now That's a Fresh Brew
A lot of brands spruik about the freshness of their coffee. But no-one comes anywhere close to boasting a fresher coffee or better relationship with their grower than California based Pachamama Coffee Cooperative. Known as Coffee CSA
, they deliver organic fair trade coffee grown by it's farmers in Ethopia, Guatamala, Mexico, Peru and Nicuragua direct to your door. Here's how it works. If you love your coffee you go into the CSA website and choose the farmer that you would like to buy from. You'll see his or her photo, how big the harvest is and exactly where they are. They will also include how much for the coffee and the shipping. You then go through and choose how much you want and Coffee CSA deliver directly from that farmer to your door. The difference? The farmers get 100% of what you pay for the coffee. Efficient.
Most of us have travelled and at some point in time have probably taken the shampoo's, conditioners or soaps from the hotel room. The Espresso has also talked extensively about customisation which is happening globally in many industries and categories. Well now here is the latest customisation in hotels. It's the 'design your own' trend where you can pick the products that you would like in your hotel room prior to checking in. Products like your toiletries, the artwork in your room and even the teapot that will be in your amenities cupboard. Situated on the beautiful shores of Lake Windermere, Ambleside the Waterhead Hotel offers true customisation where they will accommodate your tastes in artwork and toiletries from well known brands like Clarins, Thierry Mugler, Keiji and
L'Occitane. Candles, flowers, pillows, sweets, fruits and arrival drinks can also be customised to your taste. It won't be cheap but it will be yours.
