Grind your Own Coffee Beans

Posted by admin18 under coffee maker (Comments Off)

It is generally accepted that the best way to fully enjoy the different ad full flavours that coffee can provide, is to have your own coffee maker and grinder. That way you can ensure that the beans you use are fresh and that when you make coffee, you use freshly ground beans. There are many coffee makers available to buy and grinders with some coffee makers even coming complete with their own grinder. To find out more about coffee makers, go to http://www.frothycoffeegear.com – best coffee maker. Once you have seen the different coffee makers and grinders available, you can buy one that suits your needs but of course, as they also come with a variety of prices, you may have to choose one that suits your wallet. If you buy a coffee maker that doesn’t have its own coffee grinder and you don’t particularly want to buy a grinder immediately, you can do without by buying bags of freshly ground coffee, which come in all the variety of flavours. Although these bags may contain freshly ground coffee, it obviously isn’t as fresh as beans that you grin yourself but should still provide much of the flavour.

Once you have started to experience the true flavour of coffee by making your own, you will soon realize how many different types there are and know that each one has its own distinct flavour. Although taste is very much a personal thing and everybody has different ideas on what tastes good and what doesn’t, there is a consensus of opinion that certain coffees are among the most flavoursome. Although many of these fuller flavoured coffees are grown in the higher elevations like the Kenyan Mountains or the high Caribbean mountains of Jamaica, there are others that also stand out as being exceptionally flavoursome and one of these is the Wild Civet Coffee from Indonesia. These beans, if you don’t mind the way they are harvested, are extra flavourful. These beans are fed to Civets and when they have passed through the Civets bodies, they are then washed, dried and presented for sale. Apparently, when the coffee beans are exposed to the enzymes in a Civet’s stomach, their flavour is enhanced, making for a unique and tasty cup of coffee. Another coffee bean of note is one that comes from Panama. It is believed that the very first coffee beans, originated in Ethiopia and it are these beans that are used by panama, to produce their best coffee. Once grown, these beans are also said to be hand-picked, ensuring only the best of the beans are harvested. This particular Panamanian coffee, seems to be especially appealing to the Japanese as, each year, they buy 80% of the beans that are grown, which must lay credence to them being considered among the flavoursome. As mentioned, these are generally considered the best but once you try some other types, you may decide on your own favourite which, may or may not be, one of these.

 

Building a wooden key display cabinet

Posted by admin18 under cabinet (Comments Off)

Chances are you’re not going to have a client request a display cabinet for antique skeleton keys, but you can still build and use a nice glass fronted display cabinet to hang on your own wall, or place on the hall table near your front door.  It’s a charming addition to the décor, and it’s useful as well – as long as people remember to use it, that is.  “Honey, where are my keys?” will never be uttered again in your home, and domestic tranquility will be increased fourfold! Well, okay, maybe not, but you will have a nice looking display case. The size of the cabinet will depend, of course, on the number of keys that will be stored in it.

 

You’ll need to allow about six square inches of space for each key, plus you might want to put a small drawer at the bottom, or even a shelf that extends beyond the box.  Be creative, and make something unique! As you’re figuring out the dimensions of the case you’re going to build, keep in mind the aesthetics.  You’ll want the box to be a bit more than one and a half time taller than it is wide for a wall mounted cabinet – reverse that for a shelf or table placement.  This is visually close enough to the famed “Golden Ratio”, which has been used in construction and cabinetry since the dawn of history, and has been shown to be one of the most pleasing proportions for a rectangular object, from the doors of the Temple of Zeus to, well, to this key display cabinet you’re about to build. Since you’re going for a more elegant display piece, you’ll want to use a nice hardwood, such as oak or maple, or even an exotic tropical wood like cocobolo.

 

As mentioned before, be creative, you’ve got a potential show piece on the board here. For the assembly of the actual box, you can use a mitered corner, or even better, a nice dovetail joint.  Dovetails are great for strength and appearance, and they’re not as hard to do as they look.  1x4s are a good size for the sides of the case, as you don’t want it to be too deep.  It’s only holding keys, after all.  The back can be either a solid wood (if you have access to larger planks), or you can do an inset plywood back similar in structure to a drawer bottom. The door will be the “money” part of the project, and you’ll want to do some nice miter joinery for the rails and stiles.  Add a nice rabbet cut to the inner sides of the back of the door, into which you can place a nice frosted glass or for an extra bit of pizazz, you can go with a custom or antique stained glass piece.     Were you searching for a more commercial solution?  If so, then check out Key storage cabinet details.  Key Box Solutions is the number one online retail solution for all your key box needs.

 

Innovative Ways of Mounting Camera and Camcorder

Posted by admin18 under GoPro (Comments Off)

The world has seen great inventions and innovations which have really rocked and changed our lives and ways of living. An Invention is like a big stone hurled into a pond. When it hits the water, it causes ripples that disturb the calmness of the water. Paper, for example, and the invention of printing press have greatly improved our lives. Other inventions like telephone and airplane have really enhanced our communication and transportation. However, allow me at this junction to differentiate invention from innovation to give you a clear distinction between these two often misunderstood words. Using the abovementioned example of a stone thrown into the pond, we can say on the one hand that an invention is like the stone which causes the ripples; on the other hand, innovations are the ripples created by the stone. When someone invents something, other people can improve on that something, and we call this improvement—innovation.
GoPro and the Innovative Use of Cameras and Camcorders
We like innovations and inventions and have always been fascinated by the mental acumen and mechanical prowess of those who can realize their inventive and innovative ideas. Moreover, we need inventions and innovations to make our way of life more efficient and exciting. For this reason, we admire those companies that have really devoted their time and resources to reinventing and innovating instruments and equipment. We are grateful to their works for making our lives livable.
Yet some innovations are really so simple that we could even replicate them on our own. However, we often never give it enough effort to create it on our own. Say for instance, we are always handicapped in our use of camera, especially, in taking footages of motion and in finding the right shooting angles. Yet, we usually never bothered to solve these handicaps. It’s a good thing there are companies that are bent on solving our handicaps. One of these companies is GoPro which has really improved and expanded the use of camera by creating innovative accessories and equipment. This company has really made the use of camera more exciting and engaging. Nick Woodman—the founder and owner of GoPro—has experienced our own handicaps with the use of camera and camcorders. However, he worked out ways to overcome these handicaps and now we benefit from his innovations.
Aside from GoPro’s Hero cameras which allow us to be more adventurous with our photo shots, GoPro has manufactured innovative and ingenious accessories for cameras and camcorders such as the different GoPro mounts which allow us to have more angles for our shots and video footages. Learn more about these camera mounts by visiting GoPro pole.
Innovation and Progress
The future of the world, in some ways, hinges on the inventive and innovative tendency of mankind. Every now and then, an inventive person with an ingenious mind will rise up to the challenge of reinventing the old ways of handling and doing things. Unsatisfied with the status quo, that person would rethink, get out of the box, and figure out a better way to do things. Often we, the majority of people, would just wait complacently by the side, hoping that this ingenious mind can ameliorate and improve our present ways of handling and doing our usual works.
