Bristol Coffee, 100% Arabica Single Origin Coffee Available for Sale

Miami, FL, June 15, 2017 — Bristol Coffee, a family-run business that offers the best quality Nicaraguan, single origin, shade-grown, 100% Arabica coffee is available for sale in the United States through the Bristol Coffee website and on Amazon. Bristol Coffee has no chemical additives or added byproducts such as cocoa or wheat. Bristol Coffee is simply pure Arabica coffee beans which are cultivated, sorted, roasted and packaged in Santa Francisca Romana Estates, located in the shaded hills of San Marcos, Nicaragua. Special care and attention to detail taken during the entire process contribute greatly to Bristol Coffee’s extraordinary fragrance and fine aroma, its full body taste and mild, clean cup.

Santa Romana Estates has been family-operated for four generations since the late 1880’s when the adventuresome Vaughan brothers, Arthur and Marshall, sailed from the Port of Bristol, England, to Nicaragua to grow coffee. They chose San Marcos, Nicaragua for its altitude, which lends itself to the cultivation of quality coffee, and selected the rich soils of what is now known as Santa Francisca Romana Estates due to the plantation’s shady rolling hills and cool climate. Inspired by Arthur and Marshall’s enthusiastic entrepreneurial spirit, their descendants in Nicaragua chose to go beyond just producing some of the country’s best coffee for wholesalers, and are bringing their best selection of Arabica beans directly to you via the Bristol Coffee websiteAmazon, or should you find yourself in Nicaragua, at Bristol Coffee Bar in Granada, Nicaragua.

In addition to producing quality Arabica coffee, Bristol Coffee is committed to the conservation of biodiversity and waterways, as well as ensuring a sustainable livelihood for workers and surrounding communities. Being sustainably minded, Bristol Coffee is proud to be both Rainforest Alliance and UTZ certified, which assures products have been sourced from farm to shelf in a sustainable manner. In being strictly shade-grown, Bristol Coffee requires little to no chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides as the tree canopies filter carbon dioxide (which contributes to global warming) and aid in soil moisture retention, minimizing erosion. Coffee plantations that are chemically dependent tend to suffer from soil depletion and increased erosion while shade-grown coffee is, for the most part, organic and sustainable. At Santa Francisca Romana, 100% organic compost is used to fertilize our coffee plants, and our coffee varietals are naturally resistant to leaf rust ensuring we don’t use chemical herbicides of any kind.

Bristol Coffee’s product line includes Medium Roast Whole Bean Coffee and Medium Roast Ground Coffee, as well as branded merchandise such as coffee mugs. The flavor of our Medium Roast Coffee is mildly fruity or citrusy, has a delicately sweet aftertaste, balanced acidity, and a smooth finish that is never bitter. It is a medium-bodied coffee with a clean cup. Our coffee is never blended and beans are hand-picked at the peak of ripeness ensuring full flavor and consistency. Expect to see the introduction of Light Roast and Dark Roast Coffee to Bristol Coffee’s product line in the near future.

From June 12th – June 19th, Bristol Coffee is offering a 25% discount for Father’s Day. In addition to the sale, Bristol Coffee is having a fan giveaway on social media – three people who share Bristol Coffee’s post will be selected at random as winners, with each winner to receive a “I love you, dad” coffee mug and a 12 oz. bag of Bristol Coffee’s Medium Roast Ground Coffee.

Cracks in basement walls are common, but they can also be an indication of a weaken wall. It is a trouble that must get solved earlier than you complete your basement. Basement walls facilitate the structure of a home continue to be robust, which is good enough to maintain them correctly preserved while designing a basement upgrade. Water pressure from the earth nearby the foundation, or freezing and melting for the duration of temperature alterations, can lead to basement walls to crack.

While concrete cracks appear to be typical, it is not suggested that they continue to be overlooked. Almost all homeowners discover concrete cracks in their basement, whether on the foundation wall or on the basement floor.

  1. Epoxy crack injection
  2. Polyurethane crack injection

Select the Correct Wet Basement Waterproofing Technique

Basements accommodate all types of water supplies, pipes, and machines that make them really susceptible to flooding. Ruptured pipes and plumbing leaks can lead to a lot of harm to a basement. However pumping out the surplus water and fixing the leaking pipe is only the initial step to a fully waterproofed basement. If you don’t accurately dehydrate the moisture in the environment, you will be trapped with a wet, decaying basement for the near future.

Luckily, any excellent waterproofing contractor has numerous solutions to repair and improve your basement after a plumbing disappointment. Here are a number of instructions that might be helpful to stop mold and mildew growth and support a healthy basement atmosphere:

Tips to Prevent Mold and Mildew

Evaporate: – When a pipe ruptures or leaks disastrously, moisture go along with the air and preserve dampness. A basement dehumidifier has the ability to entirely evaporate the air in the area, which will eliminate mold and make your basement atmosphere more satisfying on the whole.

Substitute organic materials: – If water has seeped into wood, carpeting, or wall board in your basement, it is possibly an excellent initiative to have these materials substituted. Organic materials support the development of mold and are not appropriate for a basement atmosphere, however inorganic wall and floor choices prevail that are intended with the requirements of the basement in respect.

One range does not go with all: – There is no one greatest technique of dealing with the flooding and dampness problems in the basement. Every home is special and it is necessary to tackle the trouble by understanding the reason in particular. For a small number of homeowners, sealants or crack injections will take care of the trouble while others may require exterior waterproofing services. As a result, it is vital to get in touch with a qualified basement waterproofing contractor. The waterproofing contractor / company will recommend you the correct technique for taking care of wet basement.

The basement area of the residence naturally constitutes up to 45 – 50% of the whole square footage of possession.  Most significantly, it constructively supports the living area. As long as you take measures to completely dehydrate your basement after a plumbing collapse or ruptured pipe, you will reduce continuing harm and award yourself a more practical basement for the future.

Why you need to call a contractor to solve water leakage problems

Spend a small amount of money now and you could preserve thousands of dollars in the future. An accurately waterproofed basement will give you the prospective to make the succeeding investments over the long-term:

Lower service bills: By waterproofing your basement, your foundations will be secured, reducing the amount of cool air in the summer and hot air lost in the winter, through this specific section of your possession.

Prohibition of mould: Wet basements are a reproduction ground for deadly mould, which can be harmful to the wellbeing of your family.
