One day when the family was having dinner, the father asked the child, to pour coffee. The father had been very abusive that morning, cursing everything that moved. The daughter was so stressed out that she made her way over to the pot on the stove, grabbed a pot holder to grasp it, and then proceeded to the table with the coffee in hand. The first person she came to was her sister. She bent over her sister’s shoulder and poured the coffee down her blouse by mistake. The sister screamed with pain. What a gruesome burn she must have suffered.

What many people forget to do is prepare their home for their traveling. Before you leave, make sure you adjust your thermostat accordingly or even turn off the heat or AC. Also, clean out your fridge beforehand and throw out any food that may go bad while you’re going. This will avoid you coming home to a mess. Finally, turn off and unplug appliances, including car coffee maker, televisions, computers, and lamps. By unplugging appliances you’ll save energy too since sometimes plugged in but turned off appliances can use electricity.

I love my first cup of coffee in the morning. It’s so uplifting, at times bordering on spiritual, and absolutely calming and relaxing.

To clean a coffee pot that has a stubborn coffee ring, leave it soaking for 24 hours. Pour enough vinegar to fill the pot so it covers the ring. Use undiluted vinegar this time. Put the lid on it, move it aside where it will not be disturbed. The next day, scrub and rinse it. Repeat the same steps as often as needed until satisfied with the results.

Fresh fruits are always colorful which everybody can eat. That would add color and vitality to any kitchen. Another way of decorating with fruits is to fill a tall crystal vase with only one kind of fruit (orange, lemon, or any fruit you want). You can also use a fine China plate with assorted colorful fruits lined up with green to add appeal.

Well you can either fill your grounded coffee in the Ne-Cap Nespresso refill capsules, and store them in your refrigerator, or simply store your coffee in an air tight jar and keep in a cool dry place, away from sunlight, preferably in your fridge. Do not freeze your coffee capsules!
