Dakota’s Best Gourmet Coffees – the Best Cup of Joe EVER

I cannot believe this is my first coffee review being that I LOVE coffee and am constantly looking for the best beans and brews. So with that being said, I am very happy this IS my first review of coffee because you might as well review the best first! And this coffee is the best, at least that I have ever tried. (And I’ve tried many)

My two favorite beans I get from Dakota’s Best Gourmet Coffees are the Black Velvet Espresso and the Highlander Grogg. I always get the whole beans and grind them fresh before each brew. The beans look and smell amazing! They have the nice oily sheen and the aroma is pure delight. The BVE beans taste much like the name describes them. Smooth and rich and dark with a hint of chocolate and smoke. The HG beans are their own unique blend of butterscotch creme and hazelnuts which results in a fantastic cup of joe. Whenever I brew this up for guests, they RAVE about it! And I do, too. Seriously good coffee.

You can also order decaf beans, biscotti and flavored syrups on their website. There are many other beans to try on there as well, and my next pick will be the Jamaican Me Crazy! I can’t wait! And if you are in Hebron, North Dakota stop in at Dark Side of the Brew cafe to grab a bag of Dakota’s Best coffee or stay for a latte and a yummy baked treat. Keep watch for my review of Dark Side of the Brew coffee shop.

Stainless Steel Round Drying Rack

Who would ever have thought that this little gizmo would be so much fun? Not me! But I’m all grown up now and I like having my laundry room be all grown up, too. I wanted something to be able to air dry some of my tops and smaller things but I don’t have enough room for a wooden rack like I really wanted. So I found this little space saver and thought I would give it a whirl!

So glad that I did. Because it works like a charm. I was doubtful of the clips being strong and holding maybe a sweater on them. But they are very strong little grips and they do in fact hold sweaters! I mostly use it to dry my tops and socks and pillowcases. However, I know that it can handle heavier items as well. There are 18 steel clips on this hanger and I have it hanging from a wooden pole in my laundry room. My new fancy grown up laundry room! And the clips do NOT leave any marks or weirdness on my clothes, they dry very nicely.

Here’s the link to buy one today! P.S. I plan on taking this little beauty outside with my laundry this summer….can’t wait.


Saganizer Laundry Hamper with Wheels!

I can’t tell you how much fun I had re-doing my laundry room! Well, wait…I can. So my laundry room was looking shabby as it is in my basement and not a lot of love or care had been shown to it, yet. I decided this past winter it was time to get things looking good and organized. And a rolling laundry hamper was part of my plan. I knew I wanted compartments to separate my laundry, that was a must. I also wanted it to roll just to make life easier. This hamper caught my eye as it was very clean and sturdy looking and it wasn’t the cheapest one out there. I want it to last! It has great reviews online, which is something I always look at, if you didn’t know. Hehe.

The white canvas bags on this hamper are removable and washable and are very nice quality. It was very simple for the boy and I to assemble as the boy is very savvy in things like this, me…not so much. Once we put it together and got it rolled into place I could not wait to start filling it up! Sounds silly, I know. But this along with all of my other additions to my laundry room made it come together so nice, I just love going down there now! No more laundry on the basement floor, oh yah! The bags hold a nice amount of laundry in each compartment, too.
