I was always a traditional coffee pot kinda of person. A few years back, I moved to the Coffee pod style maker. It wasn’t too bad since there was an option to put in an attachment for my own coffee grounds if I wanted. The pods got to be a bit expensive and it seemed that no matter how hard I tried, the machine was never cleaned enough. So, I reluctantly went back to my old coffee maker. It did the job for awhile until I started ordering pour over style coffee and fresh roasted beans of all types at my local coffee shops. I definitely noticed the difference and I tried Cuban style coffee and other types that were far better than my coffee maker could ever make. I ruined myself for anything but rich,delicious, full bodied goodness. After doing a ton of research, I came across the Bialetti company. Stove top coffee seemed like the best option if I wanted to try and recreate anything close to what I could get at the local coffee roasters. I decided on the Bialetti six cup Venus. Reviews stated that the original pot they offered would leach into the coffee and I didn’t want that. I opted for the stainless steel induction model, Venus. I have never looked back. The coffee is so amazing in this maker. You will want to get whole bean coffee and grind it fresh each time you make your coffee to get the best flavor. That, in my opinion, is the best. I still get coffee at my local coffee roasters, however, not nearly as often. It is a smaller amount of coffee than you are used to making in a traditional pot but the flavor is so much better. I have the six cup and it is enough for about one regular cup. If you are used to a big mug than it may take you a few cups to appreciate the smaller volume. If you are sharing ,than you may end up making two pots. They did have a ten cup but the reviews stated that it wasn’t as rich of a flavor as the more concentrated 6, 4,or 2 cup. If you enjoy freshly ground beans and rich, full bodied coffee,than this is worth looking into. If you know someone who is a coffee lover, this would be an awesome gift.

i have been suffering from a rosacea like condition on my face since about 2011. I have not been diagnosed with this specific condition but I definitely exhibit the characteristics. I had tried Neutrogena grapefruit scrub on a whim during 2011. My face dried out horribly and looked almost burned and started to get kind of flaky and had bumps that were not pimples. I think hormones may have played a role but I am not totally sure if it was one thing or a combination of things. I changed my diet around to reduce inflammation as well. After many years and many products, I only found one that seemed to calm my face slightly but it stopped working. After many searches on the Internet, I came across Honeyskin Organics face cream and face wash. The reviews on Amazon and the internet seemed promising. They mentioned rosacea and eczema specifically, so that was reassuring. Well, it has been about a month or so and I love it. It took about a week of using the face wash and the cream to see a difference. My face is smooth with smaller pores and a more youthful appearance. The cream is thick so start with a smaller amount and rub it onto your face. After you apply the cream you don’t feel it on once it absorbs. People noted a bad smell but I don’t think it smells bad, however it doesn’t have a perfume smell either. The face wash is great too. It looks like shampoo at first glance. It feels soft on the skin and doesn’t dry my skin out but cleans really well. This is a lifesaver for me because the redness I had is very embarrassing and people definitely stare at you like your contagious. I lost 6 years or more before I found any products to tame this inflamed skin. I tried colloidal silver as well in case it was bacterial or viral for that matter(will post about that product too). You should try this product because this product is a lifesaver for rosacea or eczema type of conditions. Many reviews said they helped their children that suffered with eczema too. Check out my link to buy this product on Amazon, you won’t regret it.
