We would bet that everyone you know drinks coffee in one form or another. Maybe a hot cup of joe in the morning or an iced coffee with friends, but what we know about coffee and how we drink it is changing, why?

 

Millennials are changing the coffee industry and opting for the ‘experience’ rather than value. As the social media obsessed Millennials become the majority population, coffee has become more of a representation of beliefs than a simple treat in the comfort of their own homes.

Why not just stay? Staycations pr...

From humble beginnings recorded as early as the 1620’s and even earlier hints of a similar drink dating back to the 14th century, rum has had an interesting and fabled life.

Ever heard of “Nelson’s Blood”? There’s a British legend that tel...

August is National Peach Month and like the headline suggests there are millions of ways to enjoy them, but our favourite is tea!

Though there’s something delicious to be said for just about any recipe involving fresh peaches, we believe peach tea takes the cake for some pretty wonderful health benefits.

Did you know tea provides some serious heart health benefits? Studies show upwards of a 20% reduction of heart attacks and 35% reduction of strokes in those who drink 1 to 3 cups of green tea dail...

Yes, once again it’s almost Parents’ Day, the one day a year besides Christmas we almost go broke shopping for the perfect gift and why? When was the last time your parents spent days jumping from mall to mall looking for that must have gift of the year, spent more than they probably should have on your birthday, or went out of their way to shuttle you and your friends around?

Gratitude is really the foundation on which success and passion can be found. Taking a few minutes out of your day to express your gratitude can go a long way, and helps remind you of the great things you have accomplished so far and keeps you on track for greater things to...

When’s the last time you gave up everything? We mean truly disconnected from your phone, computer, even the everyday world around you and faded away. It’s easy to forget to take some “me” time, but as counterproductive as it may seem disconnecting is actually one of the most beneficial things you can do today. Reclaim your thoughts – disconnecting gives you the time to truly sit down with your thoughts and just think, without the influence of Facebook, Pinterest, or Instagram. Reset your brain –...Read More
