Things We Love {For Coffee Lovers} November 04 2014

Just like at most offices, coffee is a necessity here at Dav. That's why we are devoting this week's blog post to one of our true loves: coffee. 

 

Are you a fan of iced-coffee, but can't seem to make it like your favorite coffee shop? Don't worry, you're not alone. That's why Toddy Cold Brew Coffee System  is truly one of our favorite coffee brewing systems. And it's SO simple to use. After placing a tremendous amount of coffee grounds in the top container, which is stopped by a plug and a filter, pour water over and let the coffee and water sit overnight. 12 hours later, take out the plug and let the coffee concentrate drip into the bottom carafe. If refrigerated, the coffee is good for up to two weeks (though, being the coffee addicts we are, we usually finish a batch in about one week). Added bonus: the concentrate can be diluted (or not) to the individual's personal taste. Seriously, we cannot recommend this enough! 

 

 

Not sure what to do with your used coffee grounds? No compost or garden to place them in? Here's a recipe for a DIY coffee body scrub. Touted for its ability to fight cellulite, we say it's worth a shot.

Mix all the ingredients together thoroughly. After you've washed your hair and body, massage the scrub on wet skin and rinse with warm water. Your skin will be soft, hydrated and caffeinated!
