Sunday Morning Coffee
Jackie and Jennifer were having a delicious cup of brew and chatting on a nice Sunday morning. So the desire to record hit. Thanks to the ease of BlogTalkRadio we were able to put a show out.

• A good friend of the show, Michael De Leon, sent us a link to the site, “Death by Caffeine”. We discover just how much caffeine it would take to kill Jennifer.
• Starbucks has created their own unique “soluble” version of instant coffee which will come out on March 3rd.
• We really like the Crop to Cup concept of creating a closer and more intimate connection between the farmer growing the beans and the coffee in our cups.
