Joanna Heart Gets Organized with Marie Kondo

As the owner, or as she puts it, the “Boss Lady” of The Palm Coffee Bar in Burbank, CA, Joanna Heart is more than an entrepreneur. She is a mother, wife, business owner, and natural-born creative.

Most recently, Joanna is featured on the new season of the Netflix show, Sparking Joy with Marie Kondo. Collaborating with small business owners, Marie helped Joanna refresh and organize her home, providing her with a launchpad to organize her coffee shop, her home, and everything in between. Readers can watch the official trailer for the show, HERE.

Joanna founded The Palm Coffee Bar on NYE over drinks with her best friend. As an avid coffee snob, people lover, and having previously worked in HR, fashion, and as a Graphic Designer & Creative Director, Joanna wanted to take her passions for all of the above and blend them with her love for her community in Burbank, California. Since then, The Palm Coffee Bar has become the town’s go-to source for coffee, play, laughs, art and support. Even during these difficult small-business times, the team continues to hand out cards for free drinks, toys for kids, and treats to dogs in addition to their killer drink and food menu.

With limited space at home, Marie worked with Joanna to maximize work and play through various organizational systems. Since the makeover of her coffee shop and home office, Joanna has learned to implement her methods throughout her entire home. For instance, she completely refreshed her son’s room and organized his closets while also redoing the space to be clear and feel comfortable for his schoolwork, play, and everything in between. Additionally, she organized her entire living room and created a back wall of storage that was not there previously in an effort to manage space and clutter. Prior to her experience on the show, Joanna and her family only had one closet in her entire home and it was NOT for clothing.

Her favorite space is definitely her home office as it now feels like an extension of who she is. Not only is it filled with a big desk for action and creativity, but it is filled with music and Mart, in fashion, plants, life, and exercise. She has found a way to incorporate things that spark joy and are presented before her in the most beautiful manner. 

With The Palm Coffee Bar, most of the items that didn’t quite have a home, and kept getting put back in other places, finally found a place which helped the team keep things organized. It also made everyone more productive for customers.

Takeaway tips from Joanna

  • Add storage and yes, it can be done in very small spaces! 
  • Don’t forgo your favorite things in your home or business! 
  • As a small business owner during these unpredictable times, implement organization and refine your spaces. It will help grow your team’s productivity and overall happiness at work.

Tonino Lamborghini: A Lifestyle Brand

When high quality meets bold design, a unique accessory is born!

Founded in 1981 by Tonino Lamborghini, 2nd generation of the LAMBORGHINI industrial dynasty, the company has evolved into a luxury lifestyle and design powerhouse, creating superlative watches, sunglasses, leather, smartphones, restaurants, jet-setters hotels, food, and beverage, from coffee to vodka and energy drinks, distributed in 40 countries around the world.

” In 1981, I started up my new Tonino Lamborghini Style and Accessories company. At the time, I assisted my father in the family group, but I felt the need to do something exclusively of my own, different from the world of engines. I have always been interested in design and accessories, and I took inspiration from my engineering background. I’ve always loved products linked to mechanics; thus, it was obvious that the first accessory I designed was a watch. And even today, in every product I create, there must not be missing a detail somehow related to my family’s automotive and engineering heritage. Uncompromising spirit, Italian ingenuity, and design – together with the timeless legend of a brand recognized worldwide: are the values that characterize my brand. My company’s mission is clear: to spread the passion and spirit of Italy with unique and distinctive products, inspired by Italian industrial design and the Lamborghini family’s story”

“Tonino Lamborghini in 2021 will celebrate its 40th anniversary. My father founded the Italian spirit to the world through a series of products that range from watches, eyewear, leather goods  three corporate core businesses furniture, hospitality projects, and branded beverages. A real lifestyle experience brand!”

With the support of the designers of its Centro Stile, constantly under the supervision of Tonino Lamborghini, the company has designed and manufactured timepiece models that have become real style icons over the years.

Following the Lamborghini family’s vision and constant inspiration, the company’s designers have created unique watches like the Spyder, a watch totally inspired by the shield of the brand’s emblem that encloses the “Miura raging bull,” or timeless pieces like the Cuscinetto, whose first edition goes back to 1983.

The new Tonino Lamborghini Swiss Watches collection has been completely conceived and designed by Ferruccio Lamborghini, Tonino’s first son, representing the third generation of the Lamborghini family. From his famous grandfather, Ferruccio has inherited the name and the passion for motorcycles and high speed: he is a motorcycling champion in the Italian Championship.

With a team of designers and a historic Swiss watch manufacturer, Ferruccio has created eight new lines of timepieces that elegantly combine his father’s past and his experience in the 2-wheels world. A brand-new range of performing Swiss watches dedicated to daring, bold, audacious, intrepid, fearless, and pioneering people, with remarkable resourcefulness.

3 Reasons Colombian Coffee Is Considered The Best

If you are thinking of giving coffee a try for the first time, or if you want to change the particular beans that you have been using by now, there is one thing that you should definitely keep in mind. Colombian coffee is considered to be the best in the whole world practically and that speaks volumes of its quality. Why is that so, though?

Why does this particular type stand out so much? There’s no doubt that you can find the very best colombian coffee on the market and taste it in order to check its specific taste and quality, but here’s the thing. You probably first want to know why it is considered to be the best in the whole wide world. Well, it’s time to give you an explanation.

You are either trying to find this out just because you want to soothe your own curiosity, or you are actually searching for the right beans to buy. Whatever the case may be, one thing is for sure. You want to know the reasons why Colombian coffee is so esteemed, so that you can determine whether those reasons are enough for you to try it out. So, let us take a quick look at some of the most important reasons that you should have in mind.

The Geographical Location Plays A Role

Here is the first thing you should understand. Coffee needs to be grown in the right environment in order for it to be of great quality and to thrive. Sure, you could try growing it anywhere you want and you could perhaps succeed, but the point is that the geographical location plays a huge role in its quality. Well, Colombia definitely has a lot to offer when it comes location.

To put things simply, this country has the ideal weather conditions and the perfect soil, meaning that the beans planted there will most definitely thrive and prosper. The climate is also amazing, as the country gets both enough sunlight and rainfall, and those two things certainly play a part in the quality of the coffee that’s grown. So, the first reason why Colombian coffee is the best is because it grows in the best possible conditions.

This is what you should know about this particular product: https://www.littlecoffeeplace.com/colombian-coffee-guide

Growing & Harvesting Methods Are Also Important

In addition to being grown in the perfect locations and weather conditions, the truth is that these beans also need to be cultivated the right way. In other words, the human factor plays an important part in the quality. One of the reasons why Colombian coffee is considered to be the best is because people are rather committed to using the right growing and harvesting methods.

Simply said, those growers are dedicated to the work they do and they are determined to make the very best products. The best part is, it seems that they are succeeding in doing that. For starters, they make sure that the beans are grown on steep slopes, so as to be surrounded by trees to provide them with the shade they need. Then, there is also the fact that the beans are said to be hand-picked, which is a rather careful method that can make all the difference in the world.

The Type Of Beans Matters

If you have tried out Colombian coffee, then you must have been happy with the taste, because finding a person that doesn’t find this product delicious is extremely difficult. In fact, people seem to be obsessed with these particular beans, as explained on this page, and there are definitely quite a few great reasons for that. The type of the beans is most certainly one of the reasons. What does that mean, though?

In case you aren’t quite sure what I mean when I mention bean types, let me explain. Arabica is one of the types that is considered to be superior when compared to the second type that’s called Robusta. Thanks to the terrain and the general geographical conditions, Colombia actually produces 100% Arabica beans. Given the type of beans, the terrain and the care with which coffee in Colombia is grown, it’s no wonder that it is considered to be the best in the world.

Tea Drunk

Tea Drunk is a Certified Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprise in New York City and is known for being the most prestigious Chinese tea house in the North America. Founder and Tea Expert Shunan Teng travels to the historic tea mountains of China each spring to commission some of the rarest tea in the world to showcase their top terroir, superb craftsmanship, and true-to-origin varietals. 

Shunan commissions and sources teas in the most conservative fashion to bring discerning connoisseurs the utmost traditional essence of historical teas. Teas that are meticulously curated like Gua Pian Green Tea (Melon Seed Tea) from Lu An. Lu An is one of the oldest tea-making regions in China with over 1000 years of tea-making history. This historically famous style of tea goes through a unique La Da Huo processing step that gives the tea a pleasantly toasty flavor that compliments its grassy umami taste, buttery mouthfeel and bold sugary undertone. We feel this flavor profile and mouthfeel rivals that of the hip Japanese Matcha. Gua Pian is being highlighted as the next trend in tea, with whole loose leaves, there is a lower extraction rate of caffeine, allowing your body to get all of the benefits of the complex compounds found in green tea (such as l-theanine and catechins) with a more body friendly level of caffeine. 

Although many different flowers and herbs can be dried, steeped in hot water, and called “tea,” actual tea leaves come from the plant camellia sinensis. From just this one plant alone, humans discovered that through manipulation of heat, moisture, and physical disturbance of the tea leaves, this one plant can yield almost endless variations in taste and aroma. It’s a fragile ancient art form and through education and access, Tea Drunk aims to cultivate awareness in preserving it for years to come. 

You can also increase your level of tea savvy straight from the source with Tea Drunk. Experience teas such as Gua Pian right from the comfort of your home (or wherever you may be) with Tea Drunk’s Educational Tea Club. Their twice monthly expert led Zoom sessions allow you to travel deep into your cup and senses in a welcoming community of tea lovers. They have two tiers of sessions, a Sampler and a Reserve, with the Reserve specializing in the highest tier of rare teas. Each box is hand curated based on concepts such as vintage, location, or theme to help you develop your palate in comparative tastings. The tea club grants you unparalleled access to transparency and high-quality education while having a blast exploring teas with others virtually. 

Shunan, is an avid educator on tea and has spoken at many prestigious institutions including: Yale University; Christie’s; Van Cleef & Arpels; World Tea Expo; and Stony Brook University. She has collaborated with the Metropolitan Museum of Art to execute a temporary Chinese tea house in the museum and is the educator for TED Ed lesson – The History of Tea

It’s truly an experience that goes well beyond any other tea subscription service on the market. You are able to deepen your personal tea knowledge alongside other like-minded individuals and grow together in community while connecting with this ancient art form of traditional tea processing. It’s an act people have been doing for tens of thousands of years, and today we get to do the same thing with people all over the world. With Tea Drunk, tea is not just a beverage; it’s an experience meant to be savored and shared.

CBD and Coffee: What You Need To Know

A daily routine for most people is drinking a cup of coffee in the morning. However, it can produce negative side effects like – feeling anxious, jitters, increased heart rate, etc. So, it’s no surprise that people started adding CBD into their cups of coffee. You may be wondering if adding CBD to your coffee will do anything; here is what you need to know about CBD and coffee.

The Stimulating Effects

It’s no secret that coffee has stimulating effects that most of us enjoy; this is the reason why we drink it after all. This can include a sense of being alert and concentration. Although it sounds nice it can quickly escalate into anxiety and other side effects. Therefore, it only makes sense why people decided to start adding CBD into their coffee. When you’re trying to relax you may reach for a CBD Tincture. So, naturally you’ll want to add it to your coffee to give it that boost you’re looking for. Plus, the added terpenes can make your coffee experience slightly better.

The best way to include CBD into your coffee is by adding a couple of drops in your cup. However, you want to make sure the coffee is not scalding hot. Otherwise you run the risk of burning the CBD, causing it to lose its potency. Instead, try adding a couple of drops after you’ve added your milk . Or, you could let your coffee cool down before you decide to add a couple of drops. If the coffee is too hot to drink then it’s too hot to add CBD. Also, try pairing up different Tincture flavors to your coffee to better the taste. This way you’re enjoying your coffee while taking in some CBD at the same time. There are a couple of other popular methods of enjoying CBD with Coffee.

Vaping CBD and Coffee

There are some people who enjoy smoking a cigarette with their coffee. They do this because they feel that it gets their metabolism going. However, you are able to vape some CBD and enjoy a nice cup of coffee at the same time. A good product to try this with is our Active Full Spectrum CBD Pen. This vape pen comes infused with caffeine, full spectrum CBD, and Terpenes. Since coffee already has caffeine, adding more caffeine to the equation can enhance your coffee experience. It might not get you the same effects as smoking a cigarette but it’s a great alternative.

Sublingual

Another option that you have is taking CBD drops sublingually. When you finish your cup of coffee you can put some CBD oil under your tongue. This way you can chill with some CBD after you’ve finished your coffee. You’re able to get CBD into your system without spreading it out in a cup of coffee. You’ll want to stick to this method if you’re the type of person that doesn’t tend to finish your coffee. That way you’re not leaving behind any CBD.

What Kind of Coffee to Use

With many new companies and cafe’s emerging a common question is what kind of coffee to use. Although it’s ideal to use a water soluble CBD instead of oil soluble; CBD oil can work great with coffee. A lot of new products offer CBD infused coffee that just requires warm water to enjoy. However, the type of coffee used depends on your preference.

For ready made-infused coffee a Keurig cup is probably the best option. This is because you know how much CBD you’re getting in every cup. However, other infused brands do offer an estimate but won’t always be an exact amount. Although these are great, we still would recommend taking your CBD sublingually after you’ve enjoyed your cup.

The Right Dosage to Take

You might be wondering what is the right dosage to take. Many people tend to jump right in to taking CBD and that’s ok. CBD might be new to you or you might be a seasoned veteran and have been taking it for years. Whatever the case might be the right dosage depends on several things.

First, start with the recommended dosage on the bottle. You will have to consider the strength of the CBD in questions. Dosages vary depending on the strength. If you have a higher strength form of CBD a little will go a long way. However, it might be higher in price; but it tends to last longer. This is because you will not need as much to get the desired effects.

Conclusion

Pairing the right CBD with your morning cup of coffee is a great way to start the day. You will enjoy the stimulating effects of how CBD interacts with coffee. How you take your CBD is as equally important as what type of coffee you choose. Pairing the right cup of coffee with the perfect amount of CBD makes for a great experience. We encourage you to be bold, and try something new – you might fall in love with the combination.

Coffee Capitals of America

By Hannah DiPilato

With National Coffee Day on September 29 followed by International Coffee Day on October first, Wren Kitchen delved into the nation’s coffee-drinking habits to see which states have the greatest consumption of everyone’s favorite hot beverage. 

Their research revealed that The United States drinks 48 billion cups of coffee each year, they have discovered the number one coffee capital of the United States, and the data shows which region has the highest demand for the caffeinated favorite. 

Coffee represents much more than just a drink. It’s a wakeup call bright and early in the morning, a chance to catch up with old friends or a moment for yourself in the middle of a chaotic workday. Pouring yourself a cup of coffee in your kitchen sets you up for the busy day ahead.

There’s no doubt The United States is a coffee-loving nation and a new report by Wren Kitchens has revealed which state craves coffee the most. They have also illustrated which iconic landmarks each state could build with coffee cups based on the coffee consumption of citizens. Grab a cup of joe and read on to find out how your state ranks.

Oregon has been crowned the ultimate coffee capital drinking over 113 Empire State buildings worth of coffee every year. The Beaver State shows that it’s citizens drink the most coffee based on the demand for coffee and population size.

The state consumes more than 624 million cups of coffee per year and if you were to stack up this number of coffee cups in real life, Oregon would drink enough coffee to create 113 Empire State buildings each year. 

With Oregonians having such an appetite for their cup of Joe, search data shows that 2.1% of the states 4.2 million goes online to search for their caffeine fix each month

The second-largest coffee-loving state is Colorado. With a population of 5.7 million, the state of Colorado drinks 852 million cups of coffee every year. The search data reveals that 1.9% of Coloradans head online to look up their nearest coffee spot.

Washington state follows on the list with the third-most online coffee searches, 1.8% of the state’s population searching for java each month, and more than 1.1 billion coffees consumed each year. This is no surprise coming from the state that founded Starbucks. 

When searching to find the region that drinks the most coffee, the west coast takes the prize. With three of the top five states having the greatest demand for coffee based on the Pacific, the West Coast is the place they pay homage to the barista. Nowhere more can this be seen than California with the state sipping more than 5.8 billion cups of the steaming beans.

The data was gathered by looking at search volumes against the population and the average amount of coffee consumed per person. Data for this research was collected from worldatlas.com, statista.com, ncausa.org and The United States Census Bureau, Population Division. 

To work out the coffee capitals, volumes per state surrounding coffee were researched and were calculated as a percent of the state’s population. Then the height, area, and dimensions of landmarks in the US were looked at; before working out the number of 12oz coffee cups it would take to fill each landmark. Finally, how many times each state could cover each landmark with the number of cups of coffee they consume each year was worked out.
