Sumatra Madheling Decaf Coffee!

The Sumatra Madheling coffee is named after an
Indonesian ethnic group and this coffee also happens
to be one of the favorites of many coffee lovers
across the globe. Gotten from the west coast area
of the Sumatra's high altitudes, this coffee bean is
slightly acidic in comparison with other coffee varieties.

Thankfully, the decaffeinated coffee lovers can also
enjoy the goodness of Sumatra Madheling decaf 
flavored coffee beans. The decaffeinated version
of this coffee is known to have the following:

Rich heavy body Come in different exotic flavors
Has low acidity Earthy richness Has a pretty strong
syrupy after taste.

It is certainly no secret that a lot of coffee producing
companies are realizing that they need to produce the
decaffeinated coffee version of gourmet coffees so
as to keep up with the ever increasing decaf coffee
drinking population. A lot of people are now switching
to decaf coffee in order to live healthier lives.

The taste of flavored coffee beans is also very satisfying,
coffee does not have to pack a knock out punch in order
to be totally satisfying. Sumatra Madheling decaf coffee
version is known to have a senses awakening taste.

Simple Solutions For A Better Cup Of Java!

Does it make a difference how you brew
your coffee?  The answer is a big YES!
For instance, take a typical automatic
drip coffee machine.

I've found a huge difference in the coffee
taste by simply not using the paper filter
when brewing. I found a screened basket
that fits most drip coffee makers to replace
the paper filter.
(By the way, DeLonghi machines come with
a gold tone screened basket.)

You see, most of  the oils and crema stay
in the paper filter and never reach your
cup with that wonderful flavor we all enjoy!

Another way to enjoy your favorite espresso,
regular or decaf coffee is the French Press.
An inexpensive maker that uses no paper
filters and allows those precious oils to make
it to your cup and then to your palette.

History of Gift Baskets!

Although we might think of gift baskets as a
modern way to give gifts, they have actually
a rather long legacy. Spanning years and
cultures, there are several fascinating stories
of gift baskets that have been given throughout

Likely one of the earliest accounts of a gift
coming in a basket is the basket of young
plants that the pagan goddess Eostre carried
in a basket, to be used as a sacred offering.

Although some scholars argue the place of
Eostre in Easter history, nevertheless this is
the likely source of the idea of what came to
be the modern-day Easter gift baskets.

Another early gift basket story that had sacred
connotations is the Old Testament story of
Moses' mother placing the infant Moses into
a wicker basket. She then hid the basket in the
reeds on the river's edge so that the daughter
of the Egyptian royal family would find him and
eventually take Moses into her custody and

Top Health Benefits Of Coffee!

It looks like coffee has two main ways of
improving the health of your body:
antioxidants and caffeine. Both these
substances have health and anti aging
benefits. Antioxidants, for example, help
your body repair damage to cells caused
by free radicals (which are produced as a
byproduct of cells just doing their daily thing).

Caffeine has been shown to help improve a
range of symptoms and may even be important
in fighting of Parkinson’s Disease and other
age-related brain problems. Coffee is loaded
with both antioxidants and caffeine, and each
has different potential benefits for improving health
and reducing the risk of chronic illnesses.

History on Flavored Coffee!

 Although many people regard flavored 
coffee as a modern invention, its origins 
are nearly as old as the original beverage 

History shows that a few hundred 
years ago in the Middle East, people 
enjoyed drinking flavored coffee blended 
with nuts and spices.  

In modern times, innovative marketers 
have capitalized on coffee drinkers' 
desire for more flavors than nature can 
provide and have found new ways to 
introduce flavoring agents into coffee.

First, flavored syrups were used to spike 
brewed coffee with a touch of a favored flavor. 
More recent improvements in food science have 
led to ways of introducing complex flavors directly 
onto the beans as part of a post-roasting process.
When these flavored coffee beans are used for 
brewing, the flavor is extracted into the resulting 

Today consumers can choose from a wide array 
of gourmet flavored coffee beans with names like

Know Who You Are Doing Business With!

So, who are we?  It's always a good idea to know
who you plan on doing business with, you know,
establish some common ground to build a relationship
with.  My name is Joe Patanella and I'm married
to my wonderful bride, Linda for 43 years and counting.  
I'm Italian and was born and raised in New York.
We lived in the Bronx and Long Island until I was
12 and then we moved to Michigan.
Eventually I got married at the ripe old age of 18
and my bride was 17.  We raised two children,
Tammy, my oldest and Joe, my youngest.
We moved to Traverse City, MI. to enjoy the beauty
of God's creation.  The lakes with all the blues and
the greens of the Caribbean and the wonderful
valleys and hills known for their cherry growing and
wine vineyards are amazing.

As you can see from our intro., family and relationships
are very much a priority in our lives along with God's
direction and wisdom.

Why the Coffee Business?  Well growing up,
coffee was enjoyed by all in my family.  It was a
time to sip on our favorite brew and talk around
the kitchen table.  A time out of our busy day to
talk to each other and build on our relationships.
Many times there was uncontrolled laughter.
Other times many word's of wisdom were shared,
and oh yes there were those occasional
arguments or disagreements, but that was just
processing life together.

So, all that said we decided to expand on those
thoughts and offer you an opportunity to take time
out and enjoy life, sit around the table with your
favorite brew and maybe just maybe you will begin
the art of listening and communicating with each
other once more.

We would like to say thank you in advance for
visiting our coffee site. We have tried to provide
you with a site that would make your visit pleasurable,
keeping it simple, and offering only quality products
and service.

We have owned several businesses over the years,
but decided to reach out beyond our small town and
local boundaries. The easiest way to achieve that
goal is the world wide web, so here we are!

Coffee Lovers USA is all about providing the highest
Quality Arabica coffee beans. We have done our
research, so be assured, you will be more than
satisfied with your selection. We know people are
passionate about their Coffee and we are equally
passionate about satisfying your desire to enjoy
your unique brew.

So where are all the Story's!

Ok folks lets get the ball rolling! We need to hear from you,
Coffee related stories humorous, heart warming, what ever!
Original real life episodes that happen to every day people
to spark some interesting diologe for our Coffee Lovers USA
Blog. Don't be shy, keep it clean and lets have some fun.

Heres one from yours truly:
So here I'am bright and early on a beautiful Wed. morning,
its summer time and everything is good. I'm an auto dealer
on my way to an auto auction to sell a vehicle. I just got it
out of the detail shop and it looks brand new, just right for
the upcoming sale.

I decided to stop off at the nearest coffee house to pick up my
favorite brew, yes you got it, a double espresso to go, with
some steamed milk to make it a cappuccino.

Ahh! yes the first sip is always the best! Now I'm one of those
guys that isn't happy about those plastic tops, you know
the ones that make it difficult to really enjoy that wonderful
brew. So know top, but smell that amazing aroma!

Now the vehicle I was driving was a 3/4 ton Chev. truck,
real stiff suspension. On my quest I was approaching a
railroad crossing, no big deal I cross these tracks all the time.
As I was driving I placed my espresso in the cup holder
on the console ,perfectly safe right.Wrong, very, very wrong!

As I crossed the tracks there was no mercy from that stiff
suspension I referred to earlier. I happened to look down
at my cup and what did I see. "A whirl pool began to erupt,
you know that circular motion that began at the bottom of
my cup and started rising to the top."

Remember my dislike for plastic tops? Yes you guessed it
before I could get to the cup, it was like slow motion movement,
it erupted all over me and my freshly detailed vehicle. I mean I
didn't think one cup of espresso could hit every crack and crevice
in the interior of that truck. I was wrong!

I now have a new found appreciation for toppers of
any kind and use them quite regularly.

When searching for something different but

buds are looking for. Some decisions are
better left up to the experts and I believe
this is one of them.

 is a process of elimination. Blends are a safe
way to start your exploration. You may find
several that will be a regular choice on your
monthly order.

Decaf Origins!

Single-origin coffee comes from one 
specific growing region. Like fine
wine growing areas around the world,
coffees also have preferred growing
areas where environmental conditions
are perfect for creating premium coffee.

For instance, Antigua Guatemalan coffee
comes entirely from the Antigua region,
a premier coffee-growing area high in the
mountains of Guatemala. Kenya Africa coffee
is grown at high altitudes in Kenya’s
Kirinyaga Valley.

Same Great taste as our Regular Origins Coffee.
Guatemala Antigua Decaf Coffee has
low humidity, lots of sun and long cool nights.

In Antigua, shade is especially dense to protect
the coffee. Try this full caramel flavor with slight
musty-brine undertones.Full bodied and low acidic
coffee, it has a nutty, chocolaty, caramel flavor
with slight musty-brine undertones.

What About Stoneware?

Stoneware - A very durable material, stoneware
will last for years while keeping its original beauty.
Each piece is fired twice at a high temperature and
finished by hand. Minor imperfections are therefore
a common characteristic of hand-finished stoneware
products. Strict quality control has been established
to ensure you the highest quality possible at the best

Glazes - There are many factors that determine
variations in colors that result from high-fired glazed
stoneware, many of which are a challenge to control.

Therefore, each piece is unique and there are often
variations in color.Only lead free glazes are used
and the product is tested to ensure that there are
no traces of either lead or cadmium.

Check out our fine selection of stoneware products
by Mara and Padilla, you will not be disappointed.

Gift Certificates!

Are gift certificates not personalized enough? Do we
really care or have we spent any time considering our
family member, friend or co-worker's interest as to
what they would enjoy as a gift?

My personal experience in this quest is, yes to all the
above! A gift certificate is the gift that keeps on giving.
Once you know the likes, dislikes, passions of the
recipient, it is not only easy but a pleasurable experience
for them and you. They don't have to spend the full
amount all at once. They have the pleasure of experiencing
the fun again every time they use it.

I remember purchasing a certificate several times over
the years for my wife at her favorite store for Christmas
and was pleased and amazed at how much she enjoyed
herself again and again. The key is to have some idea of
what the recipient likes. Then allow them to make their
own choices. Whether spent all at once or over a period
of time, it will be a wonderful experience for all involved.
