It’s back for the season! Island Coconut K-Cup Coffee.

Island Coconut K-Cup Coffee from Green Mountain Coffee

Keurig owners who are fans of coconut-flavored coffee and believers in the free trade coffee movement should definitely keep an eye out for the Island Coconut K-Cup coffee pod, a seasonal flavor that usually becomes available around the end of March.

The Island Coconut K-Cup coffee flavor from Green Mountain Coffee is a unique, creamy coffee with a tropical flavor that is sure to delight coffee drinkers. This coffee lives up to the high-quality standard people expect from Green Mountain with a unique flavor that you won’t find in any other cup of coffee.

Take one sip and it whisks you away to a distant island where sandy beaches and gentle breezes are the order of the day. And because it comes in K-cup form, you can simply pop a pod in your Keurig coffee maker, and be enjoying your Green Mountain Coffee Fair Trade Island Coconut coffee in minutes.

What Is Fair Trade Coffee and Why Should You Drink It?

Buy Island Coconut K-Cup Coffee at CoffeeForLessIn addition to its great, tropical coconut taste, one of the things that may appeal to many coffee drinkers is that Green Mountain Coffee Fair Trade Island Coconut coffee is certified made under fair trade practices. What does this mean for you as a coffee drinker?

Fair trade certification is a product certification that indicates a product is developed and sold under fair trading practices. The fair trade certification is typically granted by one of four international fair trade networks (the Fairtrade Labeling Organization International, the World Fair Trade Organization, the Network of European World Shops, or the European Fair Trade Organization).

Most certified fair trade products feature the FLO International’s “International Fair Trade certification” mark. Products reviewed for fair trade certification are not limited to coffee, either – cotton, fruit juices, tea, vegetables, and cane sugar are some of the other products that can be certified fair trade.

So what exactly does fair trade certification mean? It means the coffee is produced and distributed according to established fair trade standards. For importers, that means promising to pay a minimum fair price to the exporting organization. For exporters, it means working with approved fair trade farming cooperatives, where any surplus on costs of fair trade membership goes to social projects organized by the exporting cooperative.

Drink and Enjoy Green Mountain K-Cup Fair Trade Coffee

Drinking fair trade coffee is a great way to show that you care about fair farming practices globally, and that you care about the environment while enjoying the coffee that you love. With K-cups, you don’t have to make a huge commitment to Island Coconut Coffee. Get as many pods as you want and mix it in with your regular rotation of K-cup coffee pod flavors. Pull it out when you’re looking for a special treat, a magical little getaway from your regular coffee schedule.

Understanding Coffee Terminology

coffee-terminology-header

Have you ever experienced coffee terminology anxiety? You know, that feeling when you enter a shop and see Americano, macchiato, cappuccino – the words all swarming and blurring together as you stare at the overhead coffee menu, deliberating, trying to order, not sure what’s what.

Coffee culture has taken root in today’s society, and as coffee becomes more prevalent, it also becomes more nuanced. Coffee terms may seem overwhelming, but after consulting our coffee terminology guide, you’ll be confident and assured the next time you place your order at your shop of choice.

Coffee Terms: The Roasts

Dark: Dark coffee roasts are often bitter. Generally, the darker the coffee roast, the less present the origin flavors of the bean. However, dark roasts do absorb flavors from the roasting process, often producing a smoky taste with lower levels of caffeine.

Medium: Medium roast beans are paired for the balanced flavors and aromas. Less acidic that light roasted coffee, medium roasts are brown in color with well-rounded taste notes.

Light: Lighted bodied and light brown in color, light roasts are known for their strong acidity and toasted grain taste. Light roast coffee is also known to retain higher amounts of caffeine as compared to medium and darker roasts.

Coffee Terminology: Preparation

French Press: A beloved coffee term, french press coffee is known for being dense and slightly heavy, but well-bodied and elegant. With a mere four-minute brewing process, French press coffee is the fastest route to decadence we’ve seen.

Chemex: Newer to the language of coffee terminology, chemex brewing is designed to extract only the desirable part of ground beans. The coffee analog equivalent, the chemex system is a manual pour-over brew produced in glass containers. If you’re a fan of coffee aesthetics, this is for you.

Pour Over: A great coffee term to know, pour-over coffee is simple and straightforward. The best way to appreciate coffee at its core, pour-over systems are a more delicate version of drip coffee makers. No power cords and no fuss, pour over coffee is pure goodness.

Coffee Guide: The Drinks

Brew: What would a coffee terminology guide be without a few drink tips? Brew is your classic cup of Joe. It could be pour over or simple drip; ask your barista to learn more about the process of bean to cup.

Espresso: Essentially a shot of coffee, espresso is a strong force produced by brewing finely ground coffee beans under nearly boiling water.

Americano: This coffee term is worth knowing; Americanos are essentially watered down shots of espresso. Pour boiling water atop espresso shots, and an Americano is made.

Macchiato

Macchiato: This coffee term translates to “little marked drink,” a perfect description of the drink itself. A shot of espresso topped with a slight layer of steamed milk, macchiatos are sophisticated and simple.

Latte: A three-part concoction, lattes are comprised of a shot of espresso, steamed milk, and a slight layer of foam. A popularized American drink, lattes are often nuanced by flavors and syrups such as vanilla, caramel, and pumpkin.

Cappuccino: Equal parts coffee and steamed milk, a cappuccino is simple and straightforward. Think latte, but more foam.

Keeping Your Keurig Machine Clean

how-to-clean-brewer

It may not be a French press or an elaborate drip-pour system, but a Keurig is an economical and convenient way to satiate your coffee fix at home each morning. Designed for ease of use, a Keurig brewer is a godsend for coffee fanatics looking to save time and money.

With all these perks, it’s easy to become as reliant on the Keurig machine as you are on the caffeine it dispenses! If this is true for you, then you know how important it is to keep your Keurig system operating efficiently each morning.

One of the best ways you can keep your pod coffee system running smoothly is to clean your Keurig. Cleaning the Keurig is an essential step to keeping your coffee routine flowing, so read on for five simple tricks you need to know for properly cleaning the Keurig coffee maker.

Safety Check

Keurig cleaning begins with safety. It may seem simple, but before you pour in any Keurig cleaning solution or put in the effort to clean your machine, choose safety first and unplug your machine.

Be Thorough

When cleaning the Keurig, be sure to disassemble the machine and wash each removable part in warm, soapy water. Clean the water reservoir and lid, the mug stand, and the K-cup holder. Clean the filter, too, as you’ll want to be thorough in removing any debris during the Keurig cleaning process.

Wipe the Surface

With a clean microfiber cloth, wipe down the entire surface of the Keurig machine. If you have areas that have suffered greater wear and tear, you may need to use a wet sponge when cleaning your Keurig, but using a microfiber cloth is particularly effective for addressing areas near the K-cup since this is where coffee and tea granules tend to accumulate.

Descale with Vinegar

Perhaps the most essential part of the Keurig cleaning process is descaling the machine. Our trick? Use vinegar as the cleaning solution. Every three to six months, remove lime and scale build up by descaling your brewer. Create your own Keurig cleaning solution by mixing half part white vinegar and half part water to fill the reservoir, then start the brew cycle sans K-cup to clean your Keurig machine.

Repeat with Water

Another important (and often overlooked) trick? Repeat the descaling process with water. Simply use plain tap water as the Keurig cleaning solution to remove any residual vinegar taste.

By following these tricks, you’ll be well on your way to cleaning your Keurig and making sure that your coffee continues brewing perfectly each morning! So don’t delay – be sure to put in the preventive maintenance to keep your Keurig, and your coffee routine, running smoothly.

Cleaning Up After Your Cup

Coffee Rings by CoffeeForLess

Image credit: Jacob Gube via Flickr

Do you have a fascination with all things coffee? Ever wondered why spilled coffee leaves a ring-shaped stain on the surfaces of things? We find all things coffee fascinating, actually, but we’re intrigued at how even small drops of coffee dry with most of the spilled content formed into a ring. The phenomenon shows a perimeter that’s noticeably darker than the center. It’s a suggestion of some cool chemical process going on, and one that we thought you might want to know the science behind.

Why Does Spilled Coffee Form a Ring?

What is going on with coffee that makes its composition show separation on a paper towel or other surface? The University of Chicago attempted to answer that question and to show how the solute in coffee segregates from the solvent. Participants in the study focused their research on the mechanisms that might drive the divide, and here’s what they found.

“We have determined that ring formation is a ubiquitous and robust phenomenon. It doesn’t depend on the solute, the solvent, or the substrate so long as the solvent is partially wetting and volatile, and the contact line is pinned,” researchers said.

coffee-art

Coffee Ring Stains Don’t Follow the Rules

The University of Chicago researchers went on to explain that the traditional mechanisms of solute transport, “Marangoni flow, Rayleigh-Benard convection, diffusion, electrostatic and electro-kinetic effects, and wetting phenomenon,” do not apply to coffee ring stains. They reported that coffee rings are caused by capillary flow, which has not been studied much, and they suggested that contact drops of coffee are pinned and that any liquid “evaporating from the edge must be replenished by liquid from the interior.”

They stated that since evaporation is the driving method of creating these coffee rings, it’s possible to alter the evaporation profile of the liquid to make different types of deposits.

What does this research say about the coffee you’re drinking? Not too much, but it’s exciting to know that coffee can be enjoyed as a beverage, and it can be studied to perhaps lead to new discoveries, too. For instance, did you know that UCLA (University of Los Angeles) researchers are studying coffee rings as part of their research on disease? Coffee, a universal beverage, may have even more benefits to mankind than calming stress, promoting happiness, and bringing people together.
