What's Brewing in Iraq
To keep our soldiers awake and happy, the Defense Department's
Combat Feeding program has come up with a new way for our
servicemen to get their daily brew: resealable polyethylene
bags. All they have to do is add instant coffee and water
to the bag, slip it into the ration heating bag they use
to heat their food, and voila - a piping hot cup of joe.
Although a pretty simple process, one can't help but notice
that technology doesn't always make things better. Even
Civil War soliders had a better tasting brew - they were
provided green coffee beans that they roasted themselves
over an open flame and crushed with their bayonets before

has always been a name synonymous with quality, and
the CoffeeTeam Therm carries on this tradition with
a high-performance, stylish design that will class up
your kitchen and bring your coffee to life. As the only
coffee maker that features both a conical burr grinder
and a thermal carafe, the Capresso CoffeeTeam Therm
draws high marks in quality as well as style.
The CoffeeTeam Therm sets itself apart with a built-in
conical burr grinder, which provides a grind that is
far superior to high-speed blade grinders that can heat
your beans and cause an uneven grind. With the CoffeeTeam
Therm, you get a slow, consistent grind that preserves
the full flavors of your coffee. Clearly, this machine
is designed to keep your coffee fresh through your last
cup, and the stainless steel, vacuum thermal carafe
eliminates any need for a heating plate, so your coffee
can stay hot for hours without tasting old and burnt.
Gear up and get ready to brew with Capresso's
newest coffee maker
As the frontrunner in a new breed of coffee makers,
the CoffeeTeam Therm is revved up and ready to brew!
The solid-steel, Swiss burr grinder gives the CoffeeTeam
Therm a powerful punch. The grinder features 4 grind
settings for light to dark beans, and the clear plastic
hopper can hold up to 80 grams of your favorite coffee.
Plus, this Capresso Coffee Maker even lets you brew
preground coffee without using the built-in grinder.
Just remove the cover lid and fill the included ...
"Aside from the unique construction of the swinging filter holder, the CoffeeTeam Therm has the look and feel of imagination."

Amazing isn't it - that something so pure, so cool and
clear, can have such a significant affect on your coffee?
Too hard or to soft, water affects the taste - as well
as the longevity of your espresso machine. But a little
preventative maintenance every three months or so will
keep your machine brewing flawlessly for years to come.
Behind the Scenes
Cleverly veiled, water is filled with unseen
minerals like calcium and magnesium carbonate. Large
amounts of these elements, often found in unfiltered
tap and well water, can be damaging to the inside of
an espresso machine. You see, minerals tend to build
up quickly due to the high temperatures and pressures
the machines operate at, and the build-up will alter
the flow of water within the machine.
Visualize for a moment limescale building up on a shower
door. Unsightly, but because you see it you will clean
it. Just because the boiler is hidden within the espresso
machine doesn't mean the limescale isn't there. Limescale
will accumulate rapidly in an espresso machine, just
like on a shower door - causing lower water pressure

"Our experts estimate that just 1/4 inch of scale in
the boiler will reduce the efficiency by up to 40%."

Maybe it was too much Guavaberry, maybe it was too much
dancing - either way I needed a latte and bad. Because
as I lay in bed with the cool morning Caribbean breeze
blowing over the sheets all I could envision was a creamy
latte. At that time, nothing sounded better.
Unfortunately, the cards seemed stacked against me;
because a latte, or for that matter, a decent cup of
joe on the island of St. Maarten is pretty hard to come
Now where I come from there's a coffee shop on every
corner. Literally - one directly across from the other.
Not on the Friendly Island of St. Maarten though.
Lucky for me, and, it incidentally being the second
day of our honeymoon, my husband wanted to ensure my
happiness. So, strapping on a comfortable pair of Tevas
he began his trek in search of a latte or at least a
decent cup of coffee to combat my insufferable headache.
As he explained later in the day... Read
