"Is the steam valve on your Gaggia Classic leaking excessively?"
By Sarah Ferguson - Monin has just released two new lines of syrups!

Monin’s new Organic line is produced using organically grown sugar cane and pure, filtered water. These USDA Organic Certified syrups are better for your body, the environment, and the welfare of small-scale farms and the people who run them. But even some organic foods don’t fit in with every diet, so Monin has released a new line of sugar free syrups as well. Monin’s O’Free products have no sugar, fat, or carbohydrates and still stood up to the original formula in a blind taste test. Perfect for low-carb and diabetic regimens, the O’Free line allows you to enjoy your favorite flavors without worrying about your waistline. Both of these new recipes are available in all of your favorite flavors, so go ahead and indulge your taste buds!

Other new products: Lava Tampers, Café La Semeuse coffee, La Valentina Semi Automatics, Lavazza in Blu, and our expanding line of Java Joe’s premium coffees.

Watch for next month’s New Product Spotlight, featuring the La Valentina Semi Automatic machines!
