Hourglass Coffee! - Ended! Congrats JoeAndBridge!

"30 Best Gifts for Christmas- Day 1"

IT'S TIME!!!! The giveaway we've all been waiting for! Today begins my "30 Best Gifts for Christmas, 2009!" But I received SO much interest from parties who wanted their awesome products featured on Mingle Over Mocha, that this giveaway is now entitled something more like, "The 40 Best Gifts for Christmas!" There will be days when I post more than one giveaway, so be sure to check back often!!!!

I struggled with which item to post when on the giveaway. But, I thought was could possibly be more fitting for a "Mingle Over Mocha" kickoff than the HOURGLASS COFFEE MAKER???
So, without further ado....

Hourglass Coffee

I love my coffee. I drink my coffee stronger than most people I know. I refer to the coffee my veteran coffee drinking Mother and Father enjoy as "beige water," because it is so weak compared to mine. It is difficult, when you have company over, to make one pot of coffee that will be to everyone's liking! The Hourglass Coffee Maker has SOLVED that problem, along with others! I can make my coffee extract (which saves for a VERY long time in the included "bean canteen" in the refrigerator!), and then pour the desired amount of coffee extract into everyone's cup! Just add water, heat, and your ready to enjoy your coffee!
Also, many people cannot handle the acid in coffee as they get older. Hourglass coffee is a much safer alternative for those with fragile stomachs!

Here are some cool facts about the Hourglass Coffee Maker!
  • No waiting for coffee to brew in the mornings! Simply add the extract that is stored in your refrigerator, add water, heat!
  • Eco Friendly
  • BPA Free
  • 69.6% Less Acidic than Hot Brew Coffee
  • Makes a Low Acid Coffee Extract
  • Makes Stomach Friendly, Healthier Coffee
  • Cold Brew Process- No Heat, No Electricity
  • Economical, at about 20 cents per serving!
  • FUN to watch!!!

Watch this video that will show you how the Hourglass Coffee System works!




Here are some great testimonials about the Hourglass Coffee System:

"I've always added cream and sugar to my coffee to cover up the bitterness. After trying hourglass coffee, I now drink it black and all without the extra calories!" Joyce Kerr, Washington

"I bought the Hourglass coffee maker because I liked the cordless clutter-free design but now I'm hooked on the coffee! It's the IPOD of coffee makers!" Jim Billington, Washington

"I consider myself to be a coffee snob, in a good way. I've tried every type of gourmet coffee there is and I have to say that the Hourglass cold brewer makes the best tasting coffee I've ever had." Kim Schmick, Washington

"Our family does a lot of camping so we initially bought the Hourglass because it's portable and does not need electricity. We now have gourmet coffee at home and don't have to drink 'camp coffee' anymore." Darci Johnson, Idaho

"I was pretty skeptical about being able to brew the grounds twice but I have to say that after trying the coffee, it really tasted great." Charlie Griffin, California

"I am a pastor and introduced my church to the Hourglass system last Sunday. It gives me joy to know that not only is it a quality product, but the company making it is also a quality outfit. Blessings!" Pastor L. North, Oregon

Wow! I've never seen anything like this before! I too love my coffee, but the acid is beginning to be a bother. I tried the "smooth" coffee, but that seemed watered down. This would be perfect for serving coffee to folks who prefer different levels of strength.

Oh my.. I saw on their site that new studies show that heat can cause BPA to leach up to 55 times more rapidly making hot brew makers a potential health hazard. Never thought of that!! Time to toss the old coffeemaker for good.

I went to the HourGlass coffee website and I think my favorite part would have to be that the coffee is less acidic. Sometimes coffee is just way too acidic and it ruins the experience.

i like thst once you have your extract its coffee whenever you want it. and its inexpensive. My husband has gotton into the habit of stopping for coffee every a.m.. the cost adds up. He isn't one to take time to make it himself at home.
