Island of desperation

hurricane mariaMy spirits are broken by the reality of devastation.My mouth is speechless by the constant state of shock. My heart fills with a burning sense of loss. My homeland as I knew it, no longer is.

My heart breaks at the loss of your rainforest. My sight hurts from the burning of your landscape. My smell inhales your tainted waters. My spirit yearns for your once inherent natural beauty.

My everyday life regressed three generations. My house is a refuge in the darkness. My life is at a standstill. My homeland as I lived it, no longer is.

My thoughts are consumed by a media frenzy. My words are frustrated with the inefficient power. My people are being forgotten. My spirit despairs for your already obscure future.

My island of desperation. My island as I knew it, when will you be. My spirits yearn for your once natural beauty.

Mornings like Puerto Rico

puerto rican artisanal coffeeMorning coffee has not only become a routine, but a daily simple pleasure that I look forward to every morning. 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.
