Gift Certificates Make It Easy To Get Your Gift On Time!

Hurry! Hurry! Hurry!!!
"Time is getting short, to assure your gift for 
Christmas, take advantage of our Gift Certificates!"
Sometimes it's hard to select a gift for that special someone. 
So Coffee Lovers USA now offers Gift Certificates! Now that
someone special will be able to choose their own favorite 
Coffee selection, Scented Candles,or any of our products.

Our Gift Certificates come in various amounts to

fit your budget and gives your friends and family
an enjoyable experience. They can spend it all at
once or a little at a time.They have no expiration
date!

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.

Some Ways To Save On Your Christmas Orders!


Merry Christmas, Time To Stock Up And Save!
Let's face it we are all trying to save money these days
and there are many ways to do so. For instance, get 
together with friends that have a passion for coffee 
like you do and buy several different kinds, then have 
them shipped to one centrally located address. 

Another thought would be to buy your fresh brew in 
5lb  packages instead of 1lb, they are discounted and 
will save you hard earned dollars! The only advice would 

be to make sure the selection you make is one you have 
tried and like so your taste buds won't be disappointed.

We hope these suggestions save you money and at the 

same time you continue to enjoy the quality of our coffee, 
products and service. Don't forget our Specials Page new 
selections each month. Thank you in advance for your 
business.

Which Coffee Complements, Which Food?

Just In Time For Your Holiday Meals!
Did you know that coffee and food compliment each other? 
According to some research we came across, there are 
combinations of coffee and food that really relate to your
taste buds. Imagine that!

Just like what wine goes with what food, now we learn 

that it's the same for coffee. It makes sense to me that 
some things taste good together, like coffee & chocolate. 
Why not other foods?

So, we would like to share some of that knowledge with

you, to enhance that wonderful past time we call "Dining."

The first chart is about the characteristics of different coffee's

from around the world, and what foods they relate to.

Why Shop On Line?

When you shop on line you: Save money on gas! Save on time not having to search for a parking space! You have a selection from of products around the World, and services right there at your fingertips. You don’t have to rush to get there before the store closes, shop on line 24 hours a day. These are just a few of the benefits to shop on line.

Let’s face it, we all want the best deal. Price, sometimes, is the driving force behind our decision to purchase an item.  It could be a product or service, but we are certainly pressured by price. Is the cheapest price always the better way to go? “Definitely, without a doubt, NO.”  Many of us have had a bad experience of cheaper isn’t better! “If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is!”
But, how do I choose which on line store to purchase from, and how will I know I’ve made the right choice? Here are some tips that may help make that decision.
What to look out for; If the product or service is much cheaper than the average price after comparing several  sites, Red Flag! If there is not a full description or visual of the product or service, Red Flag! If there is lack of information to help educate you in making your final  selection, Red Flag! If there is lack of information about the Company, like how it got started, and their business practices in regard to their customers, Red Flag! If there is lack of contact information, if a problem should arise, or a question  needs to be asked, Red Flag! If there is not a responsible Return Policy you can read, Red Flag! No well known secure credit card payment transaction, (such as PayPal etc.) Red Flag!
These are some of the items to watch out for.  A website that has all this covered, would typicality be one that can be trusted and great to do business with.  Hope these tips will help you in the future.

A Precious Holiday Forgotten!

There was a time when people looked forward

to a certain Holiday that seemed to bring them
all closer together. A time when family, and close
friends sat around the dinner table, enjoying a
great feast that took all day, and then some to
prepare. Some traveled a long way, just to be
part of this celebration. It was long awaited,
with great anticipation!

There was always a time of sharing, and getting
reacquainted with those that were out of town. 
A time for hugs, laughter, and joyful tears, to be
together once more.  The food was always great
but the fellowship even sweeter.

These days, for some unexplained reason, we
tend to celebrate, of all things, Halloween with
great vigor, and then skip right into Christmas
(one of my favorite seasons).

But have we forgotten something?  Thanksgiving
Holiday is that season of being thankful for all that
God has provided for us.  To reflect on the good
things in life, and build on them.  Which by the
way, is a healthy attitude and can get you through
your day, and beyond.

We human beings are all about relationships. 
When we think we can do it ourselves, go solo,
we have it all wrong. Reconcile  with someone you
love, forgive them unconditionally.  Don't let the
bitter pill of un-forgiveness destroy you, and the
one you, deep down, really care about.

"Let Thanksgiving Day this year start a new season
of celebration, and joy for you and your family."

Happy Thanksgiving, and remember,
"Any Time is Coffee Time."

What Is Organic Coffee?

Organic coffee is grown using methods and 
materials that have a low impact on the 
environment. Organic production systems 
replenish and maintain soil fertility, 
reduce the use of toxic and persistent 
pesticides and fertilizers, and build 
biologically diverse agriculture. Third-party 
certification organizations verify that 
organic farmers abide by the law.

What does it mean to be certified?
In order for coffee to be certified and sold
as organic in the United States, it must be
produced in accordance with U.S. standards
for organic production and certified by an
agency accredited by the U.S. Department of
Agriculture. U.S. requirements for coffee
production include farming without synthetic
pesticides or other prohibited substances for
three years and a sustainable crop rotation
plan to prevent erosion, the depletion of soil
nutrients, and control for pests.

What is the size of the U.S. market?
Organic Trade Association data shows that
coffee sales in the United States amounted
to approximately $110 million in 2006, up
24 percent from the previous year. Other studies
show the figure could be much higher. A 2007
survey by Daniele Giovannucci and the Costa
Rica-based Sustainable Markets Intelligence Center
(CIMS) reported that approximately 65 million
pounds of organic coffee were imported into the
United States in 2006 with a retail value of
approximately $617 million. The authors estimate
the organic coffee sector represented 2.3 percent
of the total U.S. green coffee imports in 2006.
The 33 percent annual average growth rate for the
organic category documented by the researchers
between 2000 and 2007 dwarfs the estimated 1.5-2
percent projected annual growth rate of the
conventional coffee industry.

Where is this coffee grown?
This coffee is grown in 40 countries including
Bolivia, Burundi, Brazil, Cameroon, China, Colombia, 
Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, 
El Salvador, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guatemala, Haiti, 
Honduras, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Lao PDR, Madagascar, 
Malawi, Mexico, Nepal, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, 
Philippines, Rwanda, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Timore-Leste, 
Togo, Trinidad and Tobago, Uganda, United Republic of 
Tanzania, United States (Hawaii), Venezuela, Vietnam, 
and Zambia. The leading producer countries are Peru, 
Ethiopia, and Mexico.

What is the size of the world market?
Global sales reached 67,000 metric tons (or about
148 million pounds) in 2006, a 56 percent increase
from 2003 when approximately 42,000 MT were exported.
Forty-four percent of the total America, of which
approximately 85 percent was consumed in the United States.

What products are in the marketplace?
These coffee products now on the market include decaffeinated,
caffeinated, flavored and instant coffees, ice cream and yogurt,
coffee sodas, hard candies, and chocolate covered beans.

What do the labels mean?
The USDA organic seal can appear on any coffee product
that contains at least 95 percent organic ingredients
and that has been certified as organic by a certification
agency accredited by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The coffee may also carry a label saying “100 percent organic”
or “Organic.”

Fair Trade
Fair Trade certification focuses on labor and trade
standards to provide small-farmer co-operatives a
guaranteed price above the conventional market. Not
all Fair Trade Certifiedä coffee is necessarily organic.
However, Fair Trade CertifiedTM does require strict
environmental stewardship such as prohibiting the use of
genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and the most hazardous
pesticides. Seventy-eight percent of all Fair Trade CertifiedTM
coffee sold in the United States is certified organic.
n the United States, transactions must be audited by TransFair
USA to use a Fair Trade CertifiedTM label. Certified organic
producers of Fair Trade coffee receive at least $1.55/lb
(as of June 1, 2008).

Bird Friendly®
Bird Friendly® can only be used by operators that meet
inspection and certification requirements of the Smithsonian
Migratory Bird Center. All certified Bird Friendly® coffee
must also be certified organic. Bird Friendly® certification
requires that the coffee be shade-grown with a wide variety
of native shade trees and other shade-providing species. No
synthetic chemicals can be used in the processing of Bird Friendly®
coffee. For information on other eco-labels that may appear on
organic coffee, see www.eco-labels.org.

A Father Son Conversation, Memories.


My Dad has passed away since I wrote this article. He 
lived to be 87 years old, but I thought it was worth
repeating.

So, I was with my Dad the other day, sharing old stories,
you know, picking his brain.  After all, he will be 84 years
old in September.  He's been around a little longer than I
have.

He came from that generation of hard working people
where provision for the family was key.  A roof over our
head, 3 square meals, clothes on our back, and provide
for our immediate financial needs.

One of our topics of discussion turned to food.  Mom was
a great cook.  She just passed away this year.  In an Italian
family, food was always an important topic, and we have
excellent memories about Mom's cooking.

Well, Dad, being older now and with out Mom, tends to
go to restaurants when he's not at our house.  Restaurants
can leave a lot to be desired when it comes to healthy and
great tasting food.  We all tend to choose where we eat in
different ways.  For some it's all about money
(the cheaper the better).  Others need the ambiance
(comfort and elegance).   And finally, some go for a fair
 price for a good meal (not the cheapest, or the most expensive). 
For me, I lean toward the third category.  Give me a meal
that is fresh, good presentation, healthy with great taste at
 a fair price and I'm happy and so is my body. 

Giving this info to my Dad, changed (I think) his
perspective on where he eats.  Garbage in, does nothing
for your health or your dining experience.  I found out
Dad was going to a fairly cheap restaurant  serving
pre-cooked bacon and just plain loading a plate with
plenty of filling items, some without nutritional value,
not to mention the absence of great taste.  So I
recommended a friend's restaurant  that just opened in
a location downtown, close to where my Dad lives. 
Yes, the food was more expensive, but what a pleasurable
treat.  Fair price, good presentation, great taste, wonderful
service and all for $3 to $4 more in cost. 

I just found out Dad went back to the cheap place the
other morning for breakfast, it's hard to teach an old dog
new tricks, but I know he will be back at my friend's place
again, because he tasted the difference first hand.

Do we need the best?  No.
Do we need the cheapest?  No. 



Search out the places that have your best interest in mind. 
Buy quality products at a fair price.  When you find a
restaurant or business that serves you well, spread the
word and support them.

Our goal at Coffee Lovers USA is to be that place that
serves you well.  Hopefully this article will give you a
little bit of insight into who we are and what we are all
about.  Here to serve you.

Origins From Around The World! Only The Best, For You Our Guest!


Travel the world and try a new single origins coffee from a 
different exotic location each month! How about a Kona Coffee, 
Blue Mountain Coffee, Costa Rican Coffee, or Columbian Coffee?

Origins Coffee-Producing Countries;
Brazil;
Today Brazil is responsible for about a third of all coffee production, making it by far the heavyweight champion of the coffee-producing world. Though many connoisseurs believe that Brazil’s emphasis on quantity takes a toll on quality, many also praise the devastating 1975 frost, in particular, was a boon to other coffee-growing countries. country’s finer varieties. Brazil is the only high-volume producer subject to frost. The Two 1994 frosts raised prices worldwide.Notable Beans: Bahia, Bourbon Santos

Colombia;
Colombia is the only South American country with both Atlantic and Pacific ports—an invaluable aid to shipping. The crop’s economic importance is such that all cars entering Colombia are sprayed for harmful bacteria. Colombia’s origins coffee grows in the moist, temperate foothills of the Andes, where the combination of high altitude and moist climate makes for an especially mild cup.Notable Beans: Medellin, Supremo, Bogot√°

Indonesia;
The Dutch unwittingly gave coffee a nickname in the late 17th century, when they began the first successful European coffee plantation on their island colony of Java (now part of Indonesia). Top-grade Arabicas are still produced on Java as well as on Sumatra, Sulawesi, and Flores, but the Indonesianarchipelago is most notable as the world’s largest producer of robusta beans.
Notable Beans: Java, Sumatra, Sulawesi (Celebes)

Mexico;
Coffee came to Mexico from Antilles at the end of the 18th century, but was not exported in great quantities until the 1870s. Today approximately 100,000 small farms generate most Mexican coffee, and most of the beans come from the south. Mexico is the largest source of U.S. coffee imports.Notable Beans: Altura, Liquidambar MS, Pluma Coixtepec

Ethiopia;
The natural home of the arabica tree and the setting for most of origins coffee legends, Ethiopia is Africa’s top arabica exporter and leads the continent in domestic consumption. About 12 million Ethiopians make their living from  origins coffee, whose name is said to be a derivation of “Kaffa,” the name of an Ethiopian
province.Notable Beans: Harrar, Sidamo, Yirgacheffe

India;
According to legend, India is the birthplace of coffee cultivation east of Arabia. Today coffee production is under the strict control of the Indian Coffee Board, which some say reduces economic incentive and thereby lowers quality.Notable Beans: Mysore, Monsooned Malabar

Guatemala;
German immigrants initiated serious coffee cultivation in Guatemala in the 19th century. Today the country’s high-grown beans, particularly those grown on the southern volcanic slopes, are among the world’s best origins coffee.Notable Beans: Atitlan, Huehuetenango
