Coffee is an artform

I would like to thank Jocelyn for her kind words via e-mail.

Jocelyn said, "You have ameliorated the coffee world with your introduction of liQuid heaVen."

To be honest with you I had to look up the word ameliorated. Ameliorated is "to make or become better, more bearable, or more satisfactory; to improve; meliorate." WOW! Thank you Jocelyn!

To answer the question if we are using T-Fal bags... the answer is a most definite YES! We found them to be the best for encapsulating liQuid heaVen. They are amazingly convenient, chlorine-free, heat sealable filter paper made from wood pulp and hemp fibers which ensure taste-neutrality, thus leaving no discriminate taste, all making for perfect coffee extraction without the perceived hassle.

Jocelyn thank you for your order and we have some additional liQuid heaVen on its way to you... on the house!

Also, a big shout out to Charles who sent this in. "The only thing better than liQuid heaVen is more of it!" Thank you Charles, I could not have said it better than that!


In this age of mass-production, it's good to know there is a coffee named liQuid heaVen, that is run by people who consider coffee an artform, a craft.

Much like grapes used in the making of wine, coffee beans are a product of artful farming that is unique and every changing. It still takes a skilled gifted roaster, a craftsperson if you will, using his or her many senses in an integrated way to bring out and balance what nature offers in these magical little beans we have come to call coffee.

liQuid heaVen stipulates that it demands the highest quality of coffee and that it is checked for aroma, flavour and a palate test before it is allowed into the roasting facility. That is why liQuid heaVen possesses a richer and more balanced flavour than mass produced coffee.

With sadness, I have to report that in many situations the art of roasting coffee is quickly becoming a thing of the past. There are new computerized roasters where a roastmaster merely pushes a button and waits for the roast to finish.

liquid heaVen... sinfully delicious coffee continues to see to it that its roasting is done without a push of the button. We see to it that the time, temp and every other variable in between is still carried out the old fashioned way.

That is why liQuid heaVen is now and always will be a quality of coffee that other less experience companies cannot reproduce. The proof is in the taste!


So thats how coffee starts...

Coffee berries, which contain the coffee bean, are produced by several species of small evergreen bush. The two most commonly grown species are Coffea canephora (also known as Coffea robusta) and Coffea arabica.

Once ripe, coffee berries are picked, processed, and dried. The seeds are then roasted, undergoing several physical and chemical changes. They are roasted to varying degrees, depending on the desired flavor. They are then ground and brewed to create coffee.

Coffee trees grow to heights above 15 feet. They are normally pruned to around 8 feet in order to facilitate harvesting.

The coffee tree produces its first full crop when it is about 5 years old. Thereafter it produces consistently for 15 or 20 years.


Drinking Coffee May Help to Ward Off a Stroke

The new study released Monday for the March 3rd issue of Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association, shows women who regularly drank at least four cups of coffee a day, reduced their risk of stroke by 20 percent, compared to those women who drank less than a cup monthly.

If women drank from five to seven cups of coffee weekly, they reduced their risk of stroke by 19 percent. Those women who drank from two to three cups of coffee daily reduced their risk of stroke by 10 percent. "Many people have been very concerned that coffee might actually be a risk factor for stroke, that it might, in fact, increase the risk of stroke," according to Rob M. van Dam, the study's co-author, and assistant professor at Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Public Health, in Boston. "But here we saw that it might end up being beneficial rather than detrimental."

Coffee Prevents Parkinson's Disease Study Says

Excerpt from NY Daily News article 2-15-09

Both eggs and coffee, once kicked to the curb by nutritionists because they were thought to bring on heart attacks and pancreatic cancer, respectively, now are touted as great for dieters (eggs) and ideal for preventing Parkinson's disease (coffee).


Welcome to liQuid heaVen!

I, like everyone else, enjoy a great cup of coffee. To be truly brewed correctly time after time, I personally believe one has to have a one cup coffee brewer using a brand of coffee beyond reproach.

So, I was one of the first to buy the Senseo one cup coffee machine when they came out four years ago. At that time they were made in POLAND, now they are made in China... isn’t everything?

To say the least, I did the Douwe thing, and tried a ton of other pods over the past four years. Now I personally enjoy flavoured coffee, hazelnut to be precise.

Long story short, after continually sampling all the pods that were out there, I decided that I would attempt to bring about a new unique style of coffee.

One that would be geared toward flavoured creamers only and would be able to be brewed in ALL pod coffee makers. After over two and half years of experimentation, and the casualty of one Senseo Coffee machine (burned out its pump!), success!

I teach school so I tested it amongst my colleagues...
I just asked them if they would like a cup of coffee and left it at that.

It was after their first couple of sips that they exclaimed of its goodness and attributes. I received so many compliments from some saying that it was the best coffee they ever had and way better than that big coffee house which sports the S name! It was then that I told them that over the past two years how I have been striving to brew a unique blend of coffee. Many of my colleagues told me that I had done so and that was encouraging.

liQuid heaVen was created and blended specifically for flavoured creamers. liQuid heaVen's specialty blend creates an intensely rich flavour free of acidity allowing all creamers to meld and bring out their intense flavours.

Since then I have come to find out that research biologist Isable Lopez Galilea at the University of Navarra at Pamplona Madrid, Spain has conducted a study on Torrefacto-roasted coffees. She is said to have shown that Torrefacto-roasting provides high antioxident properties within coffee. liQuid heaVen is Torrefacto-roasted!

I have taken into account the vast variety of both pod and single cup machines on the market today.

I crafted it so that liQuid heaVen’s bag is non-proprietary and works in ANY coffee maker! And yes, after all this time-I am (and hopefully you will be) putting a square bag in a round hole!

So stay tuned for details how to get your very own taste of liQuid heaVen. Be sure to come back and add us to your bloglist for everything coffee!

liQuid heaVen... a sinfully delicious cup of excellence.
