  1. What makes different coffees taste differently?

    What makes different coffees taste differently?
    Have you ever wondered what makes a difference in the taste of the coffee you drink? As a coffee roaster for the past 13 years, we have a few ideas and opinions on the subject. First and foremost is having a coffee roaster that knows coffee and the intricacies of roasting. Not all roasters are created equally. We are fortunate...
  2. Hemp Extraction Techniques

    Hemp Extraction Techniques
    Hemp Extraction Techniques (not all inclusive) The most popular process to date in the THC/marijuana extraction process is called critical CO2 and frequently termed as a solvent free process, which is not exactly correct as this is a ‘phase’ extraction process where CO2 is moved from liquid to gas and in the transition passed through the plant to ‘extract’ certain...
  3. Part 2: The Hemp Farm Environment

    Part 2: The Hemp Farm Environment
    The Farm Environment In our experience, the main factor to pay attention to in terms of farm environment is the condition of the soil. Specifically, whether it is ‘uncontaminated’, i.e. that it has not been treated with Round Up type (non-organic) pesticides and non-organic fertilizers. We are of the opinion that the plant should be grown as close to organic...

    Bees and Honey
    Wild bee populations around the world have dwindled, and are in danger of dying out completely. This issue is becoming widely known, but it is more complicated than you might think.

    Super Seaweed

  8. Cleansing in the Cold

    Cleansing in the Cold
    It feels great to start eating better by cleansing after New Year’s—it feels like the time for a clean start. But at the same time, the dead of winter is when we crave warm, comforting foods. The good news is that cleansing doesn’t have to mean starving yourself by living only on green juice and smoothies. There are plenty of...
  9. Vegan Holiday Desserts

    Vegan Holiday Desserts
    Vegan desserts are probably the best way to introduce plant-based food to people who eat a typical unhealthy diet. There are so many amazing plant-based ingredients that can go into a vegan dessert: coconut oil, almond flour, dates, maple syrup, berries, dark chocolate, almonds and other nuts (to name a few!).   We’ve collected three vegan holiday desserts and two...
  10. Fermentation
