Product Spotlight: DeLonghi Nespresso Lattissima EN680.M

DeLonghi Nespresso EN680MBy Monica Wendel -

New York is a city that knows no boundaries, a city that many call home. Hipsters throw parties in deserted Brooklyn warehouses, the richest people in the world use Barnes & Noble as a personal library, and last year even an otter took over prime real estate in the Bronx River. Recently, the Upper East Side of Manhattan became another home of sorts for high quality espresso machines, as Nespresso chose that location to open its only coffee bar in the nation. After all, there's no better place for a coffee bar than in a city that never sleeps!

Known as the Nespresso Boutique Bar, it resembles a hip nightclub. Customers come in and select their Nespresso beverage off of a menu similar to a wine list. If the drink wins you over then and there, you can purchase a Nespresso machine for your home such as the Delonghi Nespresso Lattissima EN680.M online or right at the bar.

Last year at this time, we were proud to tell you the tourism industry in Kenya was at an all time high.

The controversy stems in part from racial hostilities that developed around the turn of the century during the British occupation. This was somewhat overcome during the later half of the 20th century when Kenya's government worked in conjunction with its Tourism Federation to change the image of an impoverished nation plagued by political turmoil and ethnic violence, and create a Kenya with welcoming people and stability.

Unfortunately, after a highly contested election this past December the tourism industry felt a huge blow...Read More

"It's difficult to predict the full economic impact of Kenya's political violence, but it will certainly cut the growth rate Kenya recorded last year." - David Ndii

Fair Trade in 2008

Like most of you, I made some New Year's resolutions earlier this month. I'm not sure that I'll make much progress reducing my debt, and unfortunately my jeans will probably fit the same come swim-suit season, but there's one resolution that I can stick to - supporting Fair Trade and buying organically grown coffee whenever I can.

I mean, after all, who doesn't want to support the hard-working coffee farmers, and cut out the middleman at the same time?

You see, buying Fair Trade certified coffee helps small farmers and artisans, giving them strength and unity...Read more
