The Caffeine Infused Slimming Tank Top

The Caffeine Infused Slimming Tank Top

Forget the little black dress, ladies. It’s all about the little black coffee… tank top. Yup, that tank top up there is made from coffee and algae. I’ll just let Hammacher Schlemmer tell you about it:

The soft, stretchy fabric contains micronized caffeine that stimulates lipolysis, the natural breakdown of stored fats, while the embedded brown algae moisturizes and smooths skin.

There you have it: The Caffeine Infused Slimming Tank Top. And, no it does not make you look fat. That super grande venti trenta espresso milkshake sugar whipped cream chocolate mocha monstrosity on the other hand…

Making coffee making as easy as can be

Cuisinart Grind and Brew Coffee Maker

Making coffee couldn’t be made any easier. Heck, it would take more effort to crawl down to your local caffeinating hole than to use this coffee maker. The Cuisinart Grind and Brew Coffee Maker is a perfect solution for those that enjoy freshly ground brewed coffee first thing in the morning. Having some experience with groggy coffee making, I can assuredly say that the relatively easy process of brewing coffee is not so easy without the help of coffee. It’s like a Möbius strip or the chicken-or-the-egg paradox: to make coffee one must have coffee. Or at least in my case. Needless to say, mornings are not so pretty around these parts.

With a 24-hour programmable timer included on this coffee maker, all morning mishaps can be avoided. Complete with an integrated burr grinder in the set up, mornings can be accident free and delicious. Other features included on this miracle machine include a charcoal water filter and a gold-tone permanent filter. Oh, and at the end of the day, when you are delightfully caffeinated? As a final nod to the forgetful and the occasionally inept, this coffee maker includes an automatic shut-off.

i-Roast your own coffee beans

i-Roast 2 Coffee Roaster

Serious coffee lovers are always looking for a new way to enhance the experience. I know from a personal standpoint, I have tried every type of coffee maker imaginable. Lately, I have centered on the stovetop espresso maker, but I’m always open to anything that might make my morning brew better. Perhaps it’s time to look past the method and focus on a different step: coffee roasting.

If you are drowning in a sea of megabrew, it might be time to take your coffee game to the next level. The i-Roast 2 Coffee Roaster is a home device capable of producing fresh roasted coffee beans right on your countertop. With features such as five stages and preset roasting curves, your coffee-roasting game can be off and running immediately.

When you find your perfect roast, the machine can store it (along with nine other preferred roasts) in the on-board memory. The included timer and temperature gauge allow for consistent results. With a little experimentation, you can achieve quality results every time. Oh, and if you want to have ultimate precision with every cup of joe, check out some advanced tips and tricks, here.
