It’s no secret. I LOVE COFFEE (love is an understatement), It’s really difficult for me to put into words my affinity for said caffeinated beverage. I’m excited to announce a giveaway in conjunction with Mason Coffee this week! When I  find something I love I stick with it, and Mason Cold Brew Coffee has become a favorite of mine. This refreshing coffee is the brainchild of Anna and Elijah Senn, born and brewed right here in the city of Angels. Mason Cold Brew is served in it’s namesake jar, making it recyclable and totally reusable.  Whats in it you ask? Only three ingredients; filtered water, light roasted Ethiopian coffee beans, and mint leaves/vanilla bean/or lavender buds, for their subsequent flavored cold brews. The beauty of this individually packaged cold brew? It’s lack of sweetener. I’m super picky about my coffee preferring it with just a hint of sweet, and I find most bottled coffee unplatably sugary, with an egregious amount of additives. Mason is simple, and allows you to customize your own cup (or jar) of coffee, and I appreciate that. Served at the likes of; Ashland and Hill, Make Out Everyday Cafe, Simons Market on Rose and more. Make the switch and taste the difference here. Comment below to win a sample pack of all the Mason flavors delivered right to your doorstep! Three winners will be chosen and notified on May 2nd. Good Luck!

LOVE kombucha. HATE paying $4 a bottle. Solution: Make your own!!! Im learning so much about probiotics and what they can do for your body, and kombucha is one great way to stock up with these beneficial microorganisms. Live flora makes for a happy gut and a happier more energized you. Im slightly obsessed with the taste, and once you have your kombucha base flavor, the possibilities are endless. Watermelon-mint seemed like a perfect choice with the mint growing so plentifully in the garden, in which we called “melon-bucha.”  Earl-Grey, lavendar, and cantaloupe lime being the next few on our list.

1)Purchase a bottle unpasteurized, raw kombucha from your local health food store.

2)Steep two tea bags of your flavor choice in a gallon of boiling water, mix in 1/4 cup cane sugar, add kombucha

3)Let stand at room temperature for a week until mother, or mushroom develops

4)Add your choice of brewed tea into a clean 1/2 or 1 gallon jar (get creative here!)

5)Add 2 cups of turbinado sugar to each 1/2 gallon of tea, let cool to room temperature

6)Add mushroom or SCOBY and one cup of the previous kombucha

7)Cover with cheesecloth and secure with rubberband. Let sit for in cool dark area for one week.

8)Separate mushroom and reserve one cup of kombucha.

9)Add the remaining liquid, and desired fruits and herbs, in individual mason jars

10)Seal jars and let sit for 3 more days to develop carbonation.

11)Enjoy!

*Now you have a mother to make future batches, and to also separate to gift to friends
