Foam Aroma Is A Cafe Dream Come True

Posted On: May 15, 2015

foama aroma lidThe latest and greatest innovation in coffee to-go is undeniably the FoamAroma coffee lid. As its name suggests, its first priorities include delivering the same foam experience you’d get if you were drinking an espresso drink without a lid, and to allow the aroma of the beverage to be enjoyed as you sip. The unique inverted triangle shape and angle of the drink hole allows the consumer to get foam at the same time as steamed milk and espresso. Side-by-side tests have proved that the FoamAroma leaves little foam behind, in comparison to the conventional lid which has a lot of foam stuck to the lid after the beverage is finished. The other major advantage, the air vent hole, is positioned under the nose to allow the aroma to be enjoyed by the consumer. This is perfect because we all know the smell is such an important part of the flavor!

Many other advantages about the FoamAroma make this the new must-have lid for any cafe. The design allows the consumer to better see the beverage level inside the cup to anticipate the tilt when enjoying their next sip. Because of the size and position of the holes, there is the benefit of airflow which controls the temperature of the drink to prevent a scalding hot sip which can burn the tongue and the taster’s ability to enjoy the rest of their coffee or tea. The holes are also large enough to accommodate two large straws without pinching them as the conventional lid does.

This lid offers so many advantages to the consumer, it’s no wonder those who have used it now ask for it by name.

Recycling Expanding To Rigid Plastics

Posted On: May 15, 2015

In another push toward New York City being Mother Nature approved, Mayor Michael Bloomberg has announced that our city’s recycling program is expanding to include all rigid plastics. This news comes as area recycling is at an all time low of 15%, down from 20% in 2001. Many factors for the low recycling rates have been speculated, including confusion over which items could and could not be tossed in the recycle bin, lack of convenience in older apartment buildings that only offer one garbage chute, and an early cut back by Mayor Bloomberg in the recycle program to save money.

Starting immediately residents are encouraged to recycle all forms of hard plastic which will be sorted by a new optical technology that can identify and separate plastics by type. With the help of this sorting advance, the city can except to spare approximately 50,000 tons of waste from going to a landfill, and save taxpayers $600,000 per year. After expanding to include a new SIMS facility in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, the mayor is striving to get recycling to a 30% goal level by 2017.

The ultimate goal to be reached by this new recycling expansion is to simplify recycling and make it accessible for everyone living in New York City. The only stipulations that remain are to rinse off your plastic before placing it in a receptacle, and to avoid putting plastic bags in with your rigid plastic, as the bags tend to interrupt the optical technology as it sorts at the facility.

Sandy

Posted On: May 15, 2015

FE_DA_121030TaxiNewYork425x283The past month has been extremely difficult for so many of us affected by Sandy.  As many of you know, I live in Long Beach, NY one of the areas hit hardest by Sandy.  I wanted to thank each and every one of you for your patience, kind words, thoughts, and prayers.  Many of my friends lost everything they owned and are still sleeping on family members couches, floors, or in some FEMA approved dingy hotel.  I was very lucky, I only had 5’ of water in my basement which knocked out all of the mechanicals of my house.  The good news is I just moved back home last week and I can now turn 100% of my energy back to you J.  I really cannot thank you enough for the outpouring of support…….it meant the world to me! Thank you!
