Yes in this blog post our usual Orzo♥Coffee has become Orzo★Coffee! that's because we have been awarded a GOLD star at this year Great Taste Awards!
Entering the award was quite a challenge for us, as we do not want to be judged against coffee (as we are not coffee) but we cannot even be considered a tea. So we entered the category "Any other hot drink inc. chocolate" which was definitely a very tough one (being compared to hot chocolate is quite tough as everyone loves hot chocolate).
In this category there were no three stars winner and naturally a hot chocolate won two stars ;-) but we are so pleased to simply be recognised with one star for the flavour and taste of our organic orzo.
The Great Taste Awards is the world’s largest and most rigorous food awards scheme involving over 400 judges and thousands of hours of blind tasting!
This is what the judges have commented on our Orzo★Coffee:
Very pleasant robust and dark, coffee-like appearance. Very well rounded barley flavour, not too bitter with a nice finish - good with milk. Great for people who like a coffee-style drink with no caffeine
Please correct me if I am wrong but I believe we are the ONLY coffee alternative to have been awarded a GOLD star by the Great Taste Award which make us even more special & unique ;-)
thanks everyone for your continuous support!
And for a bit of fun ... why don't you play spot the difference here below ;-)
Are you trapped in the caffeine cycle? It is easy, we have all been there.
In busy periods or when we are under stress we all rely on caffeine to get us to the next deadline.
What we do not realise is that slowly you get trapped into the caffeine cycle.
Caffeine allow us to focus and stretch our mental capacity but also inhibits those healthy signals of our bodies that let us know when it gets a bit too much. It means that we might be running on energy that we do not actually have in store and that's when caffeine becomes addictive and we feel we cannot run without it.
As this clear video explains, it is not very easy to get out of the caffeine cycle (you cannot just jump of the bike!). If you feel you are trapped into it, all you need to know is slowly reduce your caffeine intake (do not stop suddenly has this can result in bad headaches and worse conditions). And this is when Orzo♥Coffee can help you!
Why not cheat your brain and substitute slowly some of your coffee cups with Orzo♥Coffee? You will still enjoy a lovely hot drink, boosting your energy level, but without the caffeine (and without any other nasty chemical!).
Sometimes caffeine makes us forget we are only human and get go limits; with Orzo♥Coffee instead you will simply learn to enjoy your natural energy and rhythm in life!
in this blog you will find some curiosities, updates and events ...so treat yourself to a lovely cup of Orzo & enjoy the reading!
