Something that got my attention: The Velopresso

This is the coolest thing t I have seen for the past week and all I can say that I want one

source

let me introduce to you the Velopresso

Amos Field Reid and Lasse Oiva combined their love and interest to develop an eco- friendly coffee on the go that rely on human power instead of electricity

source

“Velopresso is a celebratory fusion of human power, sensory pleasures and technology — old tech with hi-tech, bicycles and coffee, their engineering and aesthetics. The result is an innovative pedal-powered mobile coffee-making machine for off-grid selling of quality espresso and its derivatives with a compact footprint and near silent ultra-low carbon human-powered operation — fine coffee, no electricity, no motors, no noise.”  source

 This concept is good for both the community and the environment, Hope to see one in Kuwait soon

The Food

 ”You need to create ‘art’ to make your food interesting. If it looks good, they will want to try it, and that goes for healthier meals too.”

The first thing that grabbed my attention is the food presentation   brush cafe did a great job , not only the food is visually appealing it is quite tasty

 what i loved the most is that they mix and match with their food you will find some creativity with some of the dishes

The Chocolate Factory – Barcelona

As you know I was in Barcelona for a short vacation which was so much fun
anyways I came across this small business called the chocolate factory

They produced premium quality chocolate with creative design . As a chocolate
addicted i wanted to buy the whole store each product is unique but this specific
product got my attention “the chocolate jam” I have never seen chocolate jam
before, chocolate spread yes but chocolate and fruit preserve was something new
they have three flavors and I bought all three mint ,orange and pear

photo1-300x300I have tried the orange and chocolate jam and it is well balanced, it has a good
portion of both oranges and chocolate I think it would be great as a cake filling will
try and let you know

 Just make sure to pass by the chocolate factory when you visit Spain
