Mornings like Puerto Rico

Starting my day off with a cup of coffee, certainly gets me through the morning struggle and a full days work. Wanting to cut down on the daily five dollars lattes from the local coffee shops, I was on the hunt for coffee beans to bring home. I found Baraka Coffee, 100% fresh coffee beans produced in Puerto Rico. Puerto Rican coffee has always been considered a favorite among coffee experts and holds a special place in my heart. These coffee beans perfectly capture the wholesome taste of home, fume a rich captivating aroma, deliver authentic flavor, and are artfully crafted in Puerto Rico.puerto rican artisanal coffee

Not only do I enjoy Baraka coffee and am captivated by it's enchanting rich aroma, but I also like the company. When I recently met the two founders at an event, we talked about consumers' different preferences of preparing and serving coffee, their business philosophy, the Puerto Rican coffee industry and their commitment to restore it, as one of the best in the world. And immediately I knew I had to support them as a coffee aficionado myself.puerto rican artisanal coffee

To my fellow Puerto Ricans abroad, you will adore your mornings with a taste of Baraka Coffee, especially on the days when you're most homesick. So if you need a cure, or simply want to support local producers from our homeland, I strongly recommend bringing back with you a few bags on your next trip home, You can also purchase for them on their online shop.

Legends | Monthly obsession

ray ban retro round sunglassesHow many pairs of sunglasses can you own? In my lifetime, I've probably own one too many pairs of sunglasses and the hardest part has been to own them forever. The reality is that sunglasses either go out of style, always break a leg and scratch a lens, or tragically get lost at sea. (RIP my two favorite pairs lost in the Caribbean sea.) And so I realized that I'm tragically doomed as a sunglasses owner that I sword to never EVER again spend more than $50 on a pair. I figured that if they wouldn't last forever then might as well save my money on cheaper pairs. But I've, recently, broken my own promise. I just couldn't resist getting these Ray-Ban Retro Round Sunglasses because they're iconic, timeless, go with everything, and just true legends. So now, I'm committed to my new promise. That is to never EVER sit on them, always and always store them properly in their case, and to never EVER bring them to the sea.
