Green Beanery: Exceptional coffee and tea products at great prices Our business begins with the small coffee farmers who tend their crops in Africa, Asia, and Latin and South America, producing niche coffees with characteristics as distinctive and extraordinary as their local ecology. In contrast to these exceptional coffees from small farmers catering to specialty markets, mass market coffee focuses on uniformity and low cost. The demand by large scale coffee producers for uniform beans undermines the market for specialty coffees and thus the ability of small farmers to stay in business and maintain the genetic diversity in the world's store of coffee. Some coffee varieties have become extinct and others are in danger of becoming so. Potting Benches Like a fantastic hybrid of some very useful furniture pieces from the sideboard to the baker's rack to the kitchen island, the potting bench is built for function.

Wide work surfaces are brought to your level so you can forget about having to squat in the dirt. Shelves keep pots handy, hooks hold your tools, and shelves keep potting soil in easy reach.

Carrying paper blooms at your wedding means you can enjoy your bouquet for decades after your big day. These keepsake bouquets can be made as whimsical or as realistic and nature inspired as you like. A paper bouquet can be especially fitting for green weddings when made out of recycled paper, old maps or newspaper, or from the pages of your favorite book (one pictured last is made from the pages of Jane Austen novels).

I enjoy a coffee, espresso, or latte every morning, and I typically get a pour-over when I go out for coffee at a popular local cafe here in Austin. But this particular day was different: I decided to order something from that gold-rimmed contraption in the photo above that looks like a prop from a Tim Burton movie. What is that? How does it work? And is it really worth all the hubbub? The so-called contraption is a siphon coffee filter.
