many many years ago I started using organic products ( not everything as they were quite pricey ) . Those days the price is much better as when they first started . I think it also depends of what country you live .Here in Greece the prices are very different from store to store .
Because of a burn out I stoped drinking coffee in January 2010 . I love coffee , I love the smell of it , it's taste and all the fab variations . So I started drinking decaf . My parents , which are living in Germany discovered a very nice organic decaf espresso and you really can't tell the difference between the "real" and the "decaf" . I own a Espresso-Machine which grinds ??? ( I hope i chosed the right word as my english (you have all noticed) is not perfect ) the coffee beans and that's why I never have to miss the increbible fresh coffee aroma .
When I am on the go and my coffee machine far far away I like to drink my "organic NO CAF" from whole earth ! It's a caffeine-free alternative to coffee , made with organic barley ,ground chicory , roasted figs and malt.
I also like to drink a nice cup of tea , especially in the evening . It is so relaxing .
I like the " Organic Redbush Tea " which is caffeine free and very delicious. A bit of agave syrup and some milk ! Mmmm .... perfect preparation for the land of Dreams :)
Yesterday I backed cakes with my students ! It was real fun and very tasty !
The preparation is easy and the result is a very soft , juicy and delicious cake !
I did not take pictures from the preparation but here is the outcome !
