My Thoughts
Did you ever open a bag of coffee and you just knew it was going to be excellent because it smelled so fresh and delicious?  I couldn't stop breathing in that amazing scent.  I could tell  by the dark color and texture of the beans that it was fresh and newly roasted before they were ground.  I stood there and watched it brew, feeling my mouth water as I waited.  I wasn't disappointed. It was smooth, not bitter at all, and super strong without being overpowering. It definitely gives me the extra caffeine jolt I need to get started in the morning. Literally, one of the best cups of coffee I've ever made at home as well as bring a strong, full bodied roast.

My Thoughts

 I received one of these awesome frying pan to try out. I loved it and so does daughter whose studying to be a chef.   Nothing sticks to these pans, not even scrambled eggs. Most other frying pans I've tried could not stand up to this test. I usually have to scrape crusty eggs from the side of the pan. But with Bialetti pans, the clean up is easy.  So in addition to the trendy colors, it's also a high quality pan. It's sturdy and well made and I'm sure it will last for years. The stylish  color options will compliment any kitchen.  And most importantly, prices are affordable, even though its a high end, quality product.

Check out the Bialetti website  and be sure to check out all the other amazing, European style products they have available.  Your holiday shopping won't be complete without a visit to Bialetti.
