People say we're passionate about coffee, but we're passionate about a lot of things here at Whole Latte Love™ which is why we are so excited to announce the launch of our Organic, Green and Delicious™ program!

"Why Green? Because it's better for the environment. Our biodegradable bags will completely decompose in less than five years, compared to other plastic coffee bags, which take more than 1,000 years to break down."

Product Spotlight: Gaggia Baby Twin

Gaggia Baby Twin

For months everyone around the office anticipated the arrival, the blessed event as a lot of us called it, of the Gaggia Baby Twin. When the Baby Twin finally touched down in our warehouse it instantly became one of our best sellers, and that's why we're eager to give coffee lovers the opportunity to own it via our Latte Art Contest. That being the case, we thought a product spotlight was in order to let you know what in fact, you've got the opportunity to own.

I hoped the Baby Twin would be as nice, if not better looking than the high-res pictures we'd been seeing around the office. The Baby Twin boasted loads of stainless steel, so I was expecting a lot from this moderately priced machine. When I opened the box I was pleasantly surprised because it wasn't overdone, the Twin would look great in virtually any kitchen.

"The Twin produced a thick golden crema and the aroma coming from the shot was too good to ruin with milk – so I drank it, and of course brewed a second. That was just as good. Strong, yet not overpowering, which in the coffee world, is a beautiful thing."

The Boiler: What's Under the Hood

Expobar Boiler By Nicole Jones -

When you're talking espresso machines, there are a few things that usually come up in casual conversation – style, capability, super, semi or lever. Rarely does the boiler come into play. But if and when it does, you should know what you've got under the hood.

Lucky enough to own an Expobar Brewtus II? It's one of the best semi-automatic machines on the market, certainly one of the most durable. That's because of its commercial design, with double or dual boilers as they're called. A double or dual boiler system has its own dedicated 975-watt heating unit, which makes it possible for the boiler to run at a precise temperature. This type of boiler system guarantees a consistent temperature, providing you with unwavering temperature stability.

"While this pro-sumer machine was built to commercial standards, the engineers at Expobar did take into account the standard 15-amp household breaker, so you'll never blow a fuse."
