Factoid: White House Going Green

The White House certainly does not serve its coffee in your average Dixie cup. Staffers and visitors enjoy their java from crisp white paper cups adorned with the presidential seal, but good looks aren’t enough for President Obama—who will be leading by example, demanding greener cups as he pushes for a greener America....

Mighty, Mighty White Tea!

By Tho

We hear so much about the health benefits of green tea nowadays, it almost seems as though white tea has been pushed to the back burner. But, believe it or not, white tea may actually be better for you!

White tea is the result of farmers picking young tea leaves' buds before they have a chance to open. Plucking the leaves while they are still immature helps to preserve naturally occurring anti-oxidants, making white tea the most potent tea in the fight against certain kinds of cancers....

Product Spotlight: Gaggia Espresso - Coffee With Style and Flare
Gaggia Espresso Line

I've never been one to engage in debates over the merits of form over function or vice-versa. Call me spoiled, I want it all. As most coffee lovers will tell you, almost nothing beats a Gaggia when it comes to delivering a thick, rich crema, the hallmark of a good shot of espresso. But, as I recently found out, this Italian brand is no slouch in the design department either! With its latest models, Pure, Dose, and Color, looks and performance have come together to give home baristas a great set of machines to drool over. And, here's the kicker, all three models are available at very reasonable price points, ranging from $249-$349 here at Whole Latte Love.

We recently ran a contest on Whole Latte Love's facebook page asking fans if they could name an espresso machine just by looking at a small crop of the product photo. The Gaggia Pure was nominated by staffers as the best candidate for the challenge....

Coffee Kids: Change We Can Toast To

Coffee Kids - Grounds For Hope"Grounds for hope" is the slogan under which Coffee Kids operates and for over 20 years, the organization has been delivering just that.

The brainchild of Bill Fishbein, a celebrated roaster from Providence, RI, Coffee Kids, like so many non-profits, has humble roots. While visiting Guatemala in the late 80s, Fishbein came face-to-face with the poverty that has become a common way of life for many coffee farmers. It would probably be safe to say that he was essentially shocked into action and a charity was born.

It is estimated that more than 125 million men, women, and children are financially reliant on coffee crops. However, farmers have long struggled to make ends meet—with some being paid as little as four cents per pound of coffee. This is where Coffee Kids steps in. The organization is dedicated to helping impoverished farming families improve their quality of life through collaborative community-oriented programs. Coffee kids engages in four types of projects, designed to address the needs of underserved farming populations around the world....

Organic Coffee: What's With All The Hoopla?

Organic CoffeeWhile doing some late night grocery shopping, I couldn't help but notice the abundance of organic goods gracing the shelves — everything from skincare products to food and, of course, coffee. What, a few years ago, had seemed to me to be a passing fad, much like acid-wash jeans, has not only gone mainstream but grown to be a full-pledged lifestyle for countless Americans.

I'll admit, I didn't know very much about the organic movement. Actually, my ignorance was hopelessly embarrassing; the words "natural and organic" always seemed to conjure up a mental image of hemp-clad hippies, dancing barefoot in an open field...quite picturesque, mind you, but not very informative....
