Review: Ethical Bean Coffee

Review by: Jon 

With eight distinct roasts to choose from Ethical Bean Coffee Located in Vancouver BC,roasts only the best Fairtrade Certified, Organic Coffee.) They lovingly roast them in them in their carbon-neutral roastery powered by green-energy, and then deliver them to you brimming with possibility.
Their roasts include: Mellow,Lush, Decaf,Rocket Fuel, Classic, Sweet,Bold and Exotic. 

Our staff reviewer, Jon, loves his teas and coffees and was quite happy to try two of the  Ethical Bean Coffee they sell.

Just like the name, "Mellow" is light and mellow. It's the perfect flavor if you're craving a cup of coffee on a relaxing afternoon. The aroma and taste are equally nice. 

On the other hand, "Lush" is a stronger coffee but just the right amount of strong. Again, the aroma and taste were great! Not to mention it's the perfect flavor to get you up and going on work days! 

In comparing the two, Jon liked the "Lush" coffee better as he prefers a stronger taste.

Phoenix's Hard Rock Cafe

While in Phoenix,( and in only about a week before we leave), we will be stopping by the **Hard Rock Café. These are always a lot of fun as you know a little what to expect from the franchise yet, each location throws in some unexpected regional flair. You will see some great Phoenix oriented Rock memorabilia in the restaurant and gift shop so it will be a great cultural experience as well. What makes things even more exciting is that they are introducing a new menu, featuring over 30 new offering including, desserts, salads, entrees and drinks! What WILL we try??
This menu was under over 14 months of strict culinary development and was extensively tested so it is sure to please the clientele. To see how extensive the development process was, you should know that over 27 different types of buns were sampled before brioche bun was selected. Research has also shown that many of the menu items were huge crowd pleasers and these stayed on the menu with maybe a little modification or two to better the dining experience.
We are very much looking forward to going to the Phoenix Hard Rock Café, and checking out the new menu and the local culture scene, with drinks on the patio, we can finally welcome spring.
