Months ago, I entered a twitter contest. There are quite a few out there and my blog runs them as well. This one was special though. It was a contest for a 52″ Built In Grill. Back in July, I received an email that told me I was the winner!! Amazing!! Now, here I was thinking that this built in grill was a cabinet with a bbq built inside with total measurements of 52″. Not so. Turns out it was for an outdoor kitchen. The grill itself was 52″ and you had to have the outdoor kitchen to put it in. Talk about depressing. From an extreme high to an extreme low. What would I do with this? I don’t have an outdoor kitchen nor do I have the space or finances to put one in. So, I asked the company if it was possible to get a different appliance instead.
They said YES! Dacor Appliances said yes!
We began a conversation back and forth about what I needed and what they could give me. Generous indeed. Their appliances are beautiful, classic, decorative furniture for your kitchen. Here is what they gave me:
They didn’t have to. They chose to. A beautiful 30″ Renaissance Range. Smooth top, convection, self-cleaning range. It has everything and they have me deepest thanks and greatest regards.
If you are searching for more than just an appliance, Dacor is the place to go.
I was given the opportunity to review Kicking Horse Kick Ass Coffee. “The name says it all: carpe diem, play to win, no regrets”
This is a bold, dark and rich coffee. It is a great mix of Indonesian and Central American fair trade, organic beans. When you open a can of coffee, the smell should tell you all you need to know. Is it fresh, vibrant and intense? Opening this can was pure pleasure. The aroma simply exploded under your nose. It tempts you into making the perfect cup. As a coffee lover, I could not wait to grind the beans and enjoy the flavor of this coffee.
For my taste, I believe that beans should be gently ground. A fine powder can dilute the taste and leave a powdery substance at the bottom of your cup. Once ground, these beans gave off further evidence of the freshness and purity of this coffee. I wanted to continue wafting the essence under my nose. Smell is an important part to your taste. Just as with food, a good coffee should have a smell that excites your pallette.
When made, the Kick Ass coffee delivers just that! Bold and strong coffee flavour without overpowering you. Just the way I like it. It is very smooth and a great way to start your morning. I can see that my future is going to contain many cups of this fantastic coffee.
Besides coffee, this company offers different teas and chocolate!! Considering the wonderful taste of the coffee, I can only image what their chocolate and teas must be like!
While checking out their website you will find that they have many items to make your coffee experience more enjoyable:
From french presses to grinders
Travel cups and Beautiful Gift Sets
This is one stop shopping for your hot beverage needs (chocolate too!)
