For the month of February 2019, the average market price of coffee was $0.92 USD/lb. In 1979, the same month had an average of $1.27/lb. Over the course of 40 years the price has fluctuated a lot but for the last several months prices have been at a sustained low; far below the prices of late 70’s. This is all before you figure in inflation and the rising costs of production.
Even if you only take into account the inflation rate without assuming that the costs may have actually risen at a faster rate, farmers in Colombia were still earning a 41% gross margin (average price in Feb 1979 was $7236 COP/carga). Today, they are being forced to operate at a 22% loss as prices have effectively dropped 45% over the last 40 years. Isn’t it time we make some changes? Comment if you agree.
I’ve been pushing hard to reduce disposable, single use items as much as I possible lately, more then I have before, it’s always been in my realm of consciousness, but sometimes we get tired, busy, lazy, forgetful, trade impending seemingly earth shattering stresses for convenience. There are many excuses. Utensils, plastic wrap, coffee cups, takeout containers, shopping bags, straws, water bottles etc. Each time I end up with a paper cup (which are not recyclable or compossible in my city) in my hand I ask myself how I could have made different choices in the day that led to the paper cup. I am using this tactic on many aspects of my life (finances, proper sleep habits, balancing work tasks with chronic pain and a body that never seems to want to cooperate with a “regular” life, how I handle/respond to challenges) I am forever asking what could be a better way, what could I do differently or try (omg so many fails but every single win, big or small makes it worth it) as a way to make small but meaningful changes that add up to HUGE progress and change not just for myself but for everything in the path of my positive ripple. We’re all contagious, I hope that more often then not, as flawed as we can be, what we spread is positive, inspires growth and change. I am a little drop in this giant ass bucket, but I want my drop to count in the best way possible. And honestly, I will probably never fully know how my little drop will influence but I know that it will on at least some level for someone or something, so it needs to be the best drop I can offer... Enter the humble wide mouth mason jar... with all the fancy reusable “takeout” containers, I still keep coming back to these. The mason jar is strong, simple, versatile, I don’t have to find the correct lid that matches, no plastic, it doesn’t retain smells or flavors, I think the lid I am using actually says arrowroot flour lol, did I say versatile? #progress#challengemyselfdailyinsomesmallway#iamaworkinprogress#masonjar#reducewaste#recycle#alwaysorganiccoffee#organic#organiccoffee@thecommon_guelph@planetbeancoffeeco#guelph#metime#photooftheday@10carden@bloomsandflora THANKS FOR THE EXTRA PUSH

MACCHIATO is an Italian word meaning “marked” or “stained” which is why, traditionally, a Caffè Macchiato consists of an espresso shot with only a “stain” of frothed milk.
A traditional Macchiato is hard to come by but that’s exactly what we serve here at Caffè Italiano 🇮🇹
☕️Coffee so good you won’t need sugar! ☕️

Do you drink coffee? If so, where’s your favorite place to get a cup?
My love affair with coffee started recently. For most of my life I didn’t understand the coffee craze. I didn’t get why so many people felt like they needed to start their days with coffee. I kind of prided myself on being an outlier as someone who didn’t need it. I still don’t feel like I need it, but over the past few years I’ve fallen in love with coffee. Now I’m part of the masses who drink it every morning. For me, it’s a ritual. I love the way coffee tastes and I enjoy the energy boost. I also find it helpful for intermittent fasting - drinking coffee suppresses my appetite for a few hours until I’m really ready to eat my first meal of the day.
I’m picky about coffee - I want it to be organic, fair trade, rich, combined with a non-dairy milk that froths and sweetened with stevia or monk fruit. I also like to blend in MCT oil when I have it on hand. I don’t like drip coffee, I prefer espresso, cold brew and nitro coffee. I usually have coffee at home and I carry my reusable cup with me whenever there’s a possibility of finding a good cup when I’m out and about. If I spot a cool looking cafe with an impressive menu, I can’t resist trying it out. I keep a list of exciting coffee shops I discover on Yelp so I’m prepared with a suggestion whenever someone invites me to coffee. I also fantasize about opening a cafe one day where I will craft unique drinks made from the best ingredients on Earth…
Funny, writing this post revealed how much I’ve fallen in love with coffee! I’d love to hear about your love for it too - tell me all about it in the comments!

So finally this week after a 3 month hiatus we will be making ice cream again. We are pleased to announce we are teaming up with @yallahcoffee to produce a cold brew vegan ice cream (pictured). Using their Trust blend this ice cream will change every other month as the blend changes.
We will also producing small amounts of Chocolate Coconut and Natural Coconut all in 500ml tubs.
Spring is here! But are you ready for the Summer? If not, I’ve got solution for you! Try this coffee scrub with only a few ingredients and you’ll skin will look amazing! 😍👌🏽 Coffee has amazing skin-enhancing properties— benefiting antioxidants, caffeine, and cellulite reducing diuretic components.
When you take all these factors and combine them into the ideal beauty product, you get coffee scrub. No more bottles of grainy exfoliators that cost a ton (or are supposed to be used for your face, I know, I do it too). Coffee scrub is here to save money, time, and your legs.
What you’ll need:
1 cup pre-ground Allegro Coffee in your flavor of choice
¾ cup white or brown sugar
½ cup coconut oil (liquid form)
¼ cup olive oil
1. Combine all dry ingredients in a small bowl and mix together
2. Pour in olive oil and add in the coconut oil
3. Mix until well combined, about a crumbly paste consistency
4. Sit in the bath tub or stand in the shower and scoop a handful of the scrub onto your skin and rub in circular motions
5. Gently rub for 2-4 minutes, but if your skin starts to get tender stop scrubbing to prevent skin irritation. (you can even do this before using tanning lotion or getting a spray tan to get an even application)
6. After scrubbing, rinse off the coffee grinds and towel dry to reveal glowing, dead-skin free legs that have that ~extra~ glow
7. Sit back, revel in how amazing your legs look, grab a great magazine and sip up some hot Allegro Blue Nile with almond milk. Trust me, this step is extra necessary!
Incorporate this into your beauty routine around 1-2 times a week depending on your skin’s sensitivity, and get ready for the compliments to start flooding in. Drink up and get to scrubbing ladies! .
