Ethical Bean: Just. Better.

Ethical Bean Coffee is one of Canada’s leading suppliers of 100% Fairtrade Certified Organic
coffee. The Vancouver, BC, based company prides itself on being both just, and better, in
everything that they do. Whether through programs that respect the earth and its farmers or
by leaving a minimal environmental footprint, Ethical Bean is constantly seeking new ways to
do the right thing. Just. Better. isn’t just a tagline. It’s the standard by which Ethical Bean lives
and breathes.
Ethical Bean’s commitment to fair and environmentally friendly production practices starts at
the source. Through a relationship with Transfair Canada, the company is able to ensure that
the producers they purchase from are safe from the volatilities of the coffee market. And by
using only 100% certified organic coffee, harmful pesticides and other chemicals don’t come
near the coffee or its growers.

Once the beans arrive in Vancouver, they are cupped, tested and slurped, then stamped
with an “e” of approval and roasted in a 100% carbon neutral facility that has been designed
to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) CI standards. Ethical Bean’s sound
environmental practices extend to the smallest details: from the biodegradable and
compostable cups and cutlery used at the roastery’s on site café, to the bag-return program
that invites consumers to drop off all empty coffee bags (even those of competitors) for
storage until a suitable recycling solution is found.

Fairtrade Labelling Organization (FLO) International is the international umbrella organization
that sets international Fair Trade standards. In Canada, this organization is TransFair Canada,
the only independent, third party certifier of Fair Trade products in the country.

coffee is personally selected, scored, roasted and characterized by Aaron De Lazzer, Ethical
Bean’s Director of Coffee. Mellow, Lush, Rocket Fuel, Classic, Sweet Espresso, Bold, Exotic and Decaf.

My Opinion:
I won a contest at My Bits and Bleeps Blog for 2 packages of Ethical Bean coffee, of my choosing. Those of you who know me well, know my love for coffee, so I went with Rocket Fuel and Sweet Espresso.

The Rocket Fuel was a nice, smooth, rich blend, yet had a sweet, dark flavor. A great cup of coffee to start the day and get you going.It smells so good when you grind the beans and brew the pot. The aroma actually made me stop and say mmmm.
  







The Sweet Espresso is one of my new favorite things! This blend was the perfect cup of coffee goodness and was a great compliment after dinner and dessert. I am definitely going to continue buying this particular brand!








So all-in-all, I highly recommend this Canadian gem. It really is "just, better".

Disclosure: I won my product and was not compensated for this post. All opinions are my own.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
