    Thank you for sending such hard working, responsible and meticulous men to do the painting in our house. The crew worked hard and well as a team to complete all of the assigned tasks. Eric's presence was also helpful in making sure we had the right colors, checking on progress and communicating between all involved. We especially appreciated their prompt arrivals, attention to details, clean-up, and consideration of our needs, which included putting up with our big, friendly and nosy lab.

    Who doesn't like coffee or tea in the morning or late afternoon?  If you're like me, and go out to get your coffee every morning, it might be easier to buy a coffee maker instead. Luckily for me, my roommate (an avid coffee drinker) already had one upon my arrival. But now that it's summer, I like my coffee iced, rather than hot. Check out this iced-coffee/tea maker, that is sure to be on my list of things to get soon.

    The Hario V60 Iced Coffee Maker 'Fretta' uses the pour-over drip brewing method to make 600ml of delicious iced coffee in less than 4 minutes! ng the diffuser with ice, and inserting into the carafe, you place your ground coffee in the filter cone filter and pour hot water over the grounds. Yes, you read correctly.....I said "hot". The diffuser lets the dripping coffee cool slightly before contacting the ice below, which results in much less melting than if you had just poured hot coffee over ice. You can control how strong or weak your brew is by how much water and/or coffee grounds you used. You can brew a surprisingly strong iced brew in the amount of time it takes to pour over 2 dripperfuls of hot water.

    • The Fretta's unique design combines a 02 size dripper cone similar to the Hario VD-02T with a 600ml glass carafe.
    • Curved ridges on the inside of the cone aid in the control of water flow as it interacts with coffee grounds.
    • The plastic diffuser allows for quicker cooling and a more balanced flow of coffee over the ice, resulting in less melting.
