Coffee Bean Giveaway

In honor of my first month of blogging and to follow the coffee themed posts that have been made, I am giving away 1 pound of whole bean Ethiopian Oromia Medium Roast Coffee! This is a 100% organic, fair trade coffee from Higher Grounds. This company is working towards protecting the rights of coffee producers in remote countries, and helping to keep their businesses sustainable while preserving the environment. They describe this particular coffee as "one of the world's most distinctive coffees with a complex floral bouquet and light, crisp notes of citrus and dark berries. A crisp, clean finish makes for a delectable cup!" Sound yummy? This coffee is also extremely compatible with cream.

  12. Rich and dark, steamy hot with some cream please. I can smell the aroma now.

  13. Hi, Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you will visit often.

    I adore a good cup of coffee & have a tendency to enjoy too many cups.....oh the heartburn...LOL

    You asked about pictures in blog headers....there should be a place in the template for that. I worked mainly with the SCRIBE template so don't really know much about the template you are using. Search sites like Dummies Guide to Google Blogging & Blogging Basics 101, Tips for new Bloggers............if you search you will find the answers. You don't need to know HTML, you'll probably find the codes you need, then just paste them in your template. I hope this info has helped you....create a test blog to try new things.

    Think I'll make a pot of coffee. My H broke my french press!!!

  14. coffee, is there a morning without it?? or an evening? In Europe it's the first thing friends and family do, pour a cup of coffee and sit down and enjoy each other's company. (like I'm enjoying yours right now)

  21. I'm so happy that you were able to retrieve your laptop. Apparently your hard drive was not erased. I love the music that you have added to your blog site. I played it several times. As I was reading what you have written to date, I was wondering if you have sent your blog website to your Aunts. I think that they would love to see and enjoy your pretty site. Every time I read what you have written, I learn something new about you. Miss you!!!! Love, MOM
