Why you need a coffee subscription, now

I’m not a morning person.  I need my morning coffee and a bit of time before I’m ready to face people. When my machine runs out and I’ve no more coffee, I know it’s not going to be a good day.

Luckily this doesn’t happen anymore, as I now have a coffee subscription.  It works as you’d expect, you pay a monthly fee and get regular deliveries of coffee to your door.  Problem solved.

Now, you may be asking – why don’t I just get this with my regular groceries?  Well, you can.  If you are the type of organized person who will always keep the coffee stocked then you are a better person than I.  More importantly though, you may not be getting the best coffee or the best deal from your normal grocery store.

Good coffee beans are essential to a good brew… and they have to be to your taste too.  Not everyone is the same.  A dedicated coffee supplier will have many different coffees for you to try.

We think you should check out the McClure Family’s coffee.org.  Don’t let their moderately dated website put you off, these guys know coffee (and surely a dated website is now retro cool.. right?).  They supply loads of stuff on top of coffee including teas, cake and equipment.  But it is the coffee subscriptions that are of interest here.

As they are a distributor (rather than the roaster themselves) you get a broad range of coffees.  And these guys have high standards, they are a family business that vet all their suppliers before hand and also provide their own line of Miss Ellie’s Southern and Central American coffee.  Plus, you get a 5% discount when you buy a subscription, which is always nice.

Sure, there are other coffee subscriptions out there other than coffee.org, but these guys are worth checking out.

True Lemon® Receives Highest Honor Set by Women’s Choice Award for Outstanding Customer Experience

BALTIMORE, Aug. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — As the leading advocate for female consumers, WomenCertified Inc. is delighted to honor True Lemon® and True Lime® with the 2016 Women’s Choice Award® based on extraordinary recommendations from their female customers in a customer satisfaction survey conducted by an independent research firm using the company’s customer database.

Get True Lemon on Amazon now at this this link.

True Lemon® and True Lime® lemonade and limeade low calorie mixes are made from simple and clean ingredients, delivering real flavor from real fruit. Both product lines received excellent survey scores, with the vast majority of customers rating their experience with True Lemon® and True Lime® as “very positive” and 96% saying they have “recommended the products to their family and friends.”

Available at Amazon (here) and in 34,000 stores nationwide in convenient on-the-go stick packets or quart packets for use at home, True Lemon® and True Lime® lemonades and limeades meet the needs of today’s women because they provide great taste, low-calories and have no artificial sweeteners, flavors, preservatives, sodium or gluten.

“The Women’s Choice Award’s mission is to identify which brands are most recommended by women,” said Delia Passi, CEO and Founder. “By carrying the Women’s Choice Award seal, brands like True Lemon® signify their commitment to empower women to make smart buying choices.”

“We are honored to be recognized by the Women’s Choice Awards. As a small, growing company, our commitment is to create powdered beverage mixes that are not only delicious but that women can feel good about drinking. And since so many of us are parents ourselves, we want to make sure that we create products that we feel good about giving to children too,” said Heidi Carney, Executive Vice President of True Citrus Co., the manufacturer of True Lemon® and True Lime® products.

Female consumers represent a driving economic powerhouse, controlling 65%, or approximately $20 trillion annually, in global spending and more than 80% of US spending, according to the Harvard Business Review and the Continuum’s Women and Children Research Group. Coupling that with a recent Nielsen report on global trust in advertising, which stated that 92% of consumers trust recommendations from people they know over any other form of advertising, reveals the significance of being an America’s Most Recommended brand by women.

Passi commented on how the Women’s Choice Award serves as a competitive differentiator in today’s cluttered marketplace by explaining, “When a woman is willing to recommend a brand or service to others, it means that business has earned her loyalty. Those are the businesses we wish to recognize for their efforts and commitment to the number one consumer – women.”

Women are still largely responsible for purchasing food and beverages for themselves and their families. “Every day we hear from customers who tell us that our products have helped their family give up soda or have helped them to drink more water. With all that today’s women have on their plate, we are so proud to play even a small role in helping women lead healthier lives,” said Carney.

“We are pleased to salute True Lemon® for their focus on excellence, a commitment that is recognized by women consumers nationwide,” said Passi.

Beginner’s Guide to InfoSec: Peerlyst’s First E-Book on Amazon

The “Beginner’s Guide to Information Security,” crowdsourced from members of the Peerlyst InfoSec community, is now available on Amazon.

The Beginner’s Guide to Information Security offers insight and resources to help readers embark on a career in one of the 21st century’s most important—and potentially lucrative—fields. But even as the world comes to recognize how essential InfoSec is, it’s still a relatively new discipline, and the paths leading into it are many—and not always well defined. The first e-book from Peerlyst (https://www.peerlyst.com), the Beginner’s Guide to Information Security aims to cut through some of the confusion about how and where to start, putting readers on the road to a successful career in the field.

The guide’s content has been crowdsourced from members of the Peerlyst online community of InfoSec professionals. Many are longtime experts in some of the sectors that make up this varied field, others are relative newcomers eager to share the advice and resources they’ve found most valuable during their own career journeys. The contributors include Cheryl Biswas, a cybersecurity consultant focused on threat Intel with KPMG; Kris Rides, who heads an information security recruitment agency; and network security specialist Dean Webb.

Click here for a direct link to the book.

“The Beginner’s Guide to Information Security aligns perfectly with the mission of Peerlyst.com, which is removing information and knowledge barriers so security professionals can work together and educate each other,” says Limor Elbaz, Peerlyst’s founder and CEO. “And if advice from experts helps more newbies get involved in InfoSec, that will ease the pressure on those who are currently in the field—without compromising on the quality of education.”

The Beginner’s Guide to Information Security begins with some chapters that cover ways readers can learn about information security, maybe pick up a certification or two, find out about job opportunities, and then, hopefully, snag a job. Then it delves deeper into the InfoSec field, offering perspective and resources that will help readers master key skills, like knowing how to protect a network, respond to a security incident, and educate users so they’re part of the security solution—not the problem. The last chapters focus on “big picture” issues such as women in security, and where InfoSec may be heading in the future.

The book’s chapters include:

  • Thirteen Steps for Starting Your InfoSec Journey
  • Starting a Career in Network Security
  • How to Prepare for an InfoSec Interview
  • Working with Recruiters
  • How to Get Started in Cryptography
  • How to Secure Your Data
  • Basic Network Security

The average home has more than 8 devices connecting to the Internet1, and they’re not used for just sending emails and tweets. More and more home Wi-Fi users are streaming 4K movies and TV shows, video chatting with friends and family, and playing video games against competitors around the globe, all on different devices and often at the same time. MU-MIMO technology helps provide better overall performance and coverage for each of the devices simultaneously.  This helps enhance the users’ experience so they won’t see that buffering icon when streaming a movie or listening to choppy music or worse, playing games with lag. Even if users aren’t heavily consuming Wi-Fi today, MU-MIMO routers, range extenders and adapters are ideal for future proofing the Wi-Fi network so when more devices are added at a later time, the EA9500 will be more than ready to support them.

Leap Ready-to-Mix Powders are the Ultimate Smoothie Bowl Shortcut

Organic, Vegan, and Brimming with Superfoods, Leap Serves Up Smoothie Bowl Perfection in Under a Minute

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Smoothie bowls just got a whole lot simpler to make, thanks to Leap’s new ready-to-mix smoothie bowl powders. Made entirely of organic whole fruits, vegetables, and plant proteins, Leap makes it easy (and affordable) to prepare a superfood-infused smoothie bowl in under a minute. Each flavor offers an ideal balance of vegan protein, omega fats, fiber, and up to four servings of nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables.

“Smoothie bowls are having a major moment, and why not? They are nutritious, they taste great, and they look beautiful too. The only problem is they can be a massive pain to make. I mean most people just don’t have the time it takes to wash, chop, and blend all those ingredients every morning,” said Leap Co-Founder and CEO Edward Cannan. “We wanted to simplify the process by creating ready-to-mix smoothie bowl powders that could deliver a nutritionally balanced smoothie bowl base, without all of the hassle.”

Working with nutritional experts, Leap developed three great tasting powders designed to optimize health, improve digestion, and detoxify the body. Superfoods like kale, goji berries, and spirulina are either freeze-dried or dehydrated at the peak of ripeness and then carefully crushed into Leap’s ready-to-mix powder form. The product contains absolutely no added sugars and no artificial shortcuts.

“There is this terrible misconception that eating organic or healthy need also be expensive, time-consuming, and tasteless. Leap, however, is proof of the contrary,” said Cannan. “It is a great solution for anyone serious about improving their health, fitness, and/or energy levels.”

Leap can be blended, stirred, or shaken into any yogurt or milk alternative to create a great tasting and highly satisfying smoothie bowl base. After that, individuals need only add their favorite toppings to achieve Insta-worthy smoothie bowl success.

The product is currently available in three flavors: Green Revive, Blue Zeal, and Red Power. Each one is vegan, gluten-free, non-gmo, soy-free, and certified Kosher.

Leap is now available for purchase at its website and Amazon Prime (click here).
