Review

I'm picky about my food, because it's my food! Not when it comes to the variety of food but the quality. The same goes for my coffee. Some people are happy with any brand, as long as they get their caffeine fix but I'd rather drink water. Interestingly enough, I drink coffee for the taste alone. I seem to be one of those weird people who is immune to caffeine highs. I can drink coffee and go right to sleep.

When I left Ontario, I was so upset that I forgot or rather ran out of time to stock up on a supply of my favourite beans, from the local coffee shop. I guess I could have had them sent in the mail but I decided to see what they have on this side (BC) of the country. I did find a shop, in downtown Vancouver but they are far away and kind of expensive. Plus, if i'm going into the city it will be for more than one item. So I went online and found Bean Head coffee. I like to try different brands and their reviews were great.

The funny thing is, they are located in King City, Ontario (of course after I've left that side of Canada), but you can purchase their coffee from various locations & online.

Bean Head coffee is a "Medium-Dark Roast using only 100-Percent Arabica Whole Beans". More importantly, Bean Head is Fair Trade & Canada/USDA Organic Certified. It is sold in 340 gm bags, which is inside of the brown bag. Which I've been saving to put gifts in. Recycle, reuse. Every bag is fresh, not dried out & smelling like heaven. Very low acidity, upon brewing.

You can purchase the whole bean, ground bean or the Keurig K-Cup Brewers. I prefer to purchase the whole bean and grind them as needed.  Because of that I can't talk about the quality and taste of the ground beans or K-cups.

This brand is in my top 5, for whole coffee beans. If you like a strong, smooth, great quality coffee, give Bean Head a try. Learn more about Bean Head here.

`Chilliwack River Valley Natural Honey is a Canadian company, based out of Chilliwack, BC. So far, I've purchased the Buckwheat, Blueberry & Wildflower varieties. If you get to visit the storefront at Granville Island, in Vancouver, you can try most of the honey flavours before you buy. Various sizes and variety packs are available, which are great for gifts.

`The Buckwheat honey is my favourite, so far. It is pungent and bold, in a good way and rich in flavour. Sometimes I just eat a teaspoon, for the love of it! I've also used it as a sore throat soother and it makes my scratchy throat feel better, almost instantly. A definite must have for honey lovers!

`The Wildflower honey is lighter, brighter and floral in flavour. Yet, it stands well on it's own. This honey compliments a herbal tea, nicely.

`The Blueberry flavour is different but still, very nice. Not an overpowering fruit flavour, like the name suggests but you can definitely taste the fruit essence.

`My favourite way to enjoy honey is on toast, followed by using it in baking. What are your favourite ways to enjoy honey?
