I can't agree more with Paul over at The Caffination. I've tried Zabar's coffee in drip form, French press, Aerobie and as espresso and have enjoyed every single cup.
This is the coffee maker (Cuisinart Brew Central) I've been using of late, and I have to say it makes a really nice, smooth cup of coffee - and with the timer - it lets me wake up to the most wonderful aroma imaginable... Zabar's Coffee!
Here's an excerpt of what Paul at The Caffination writes about Zabar's Coffee:
I’ve tried it as both a drip be, and a French press… Both good. But the true surprise was the espresso… It floored me, by being both strong and smooth. A pretty clean mouthful with a bright acidity that wasn’t too overpowering, just enough to make it taste fresh. If you are looking got a great coffee at a reasonable price this is s nice change if pace blend!

When I began working at Zabar’s one of the first houseware purchases I made was the Aerobie AeroPress. I remember meeting with Ann Zabar in her office and hearing her tout the merits of the AeroPress. She was learning the art of cupping from her father Saul Zabar, the king of coffee roasting (cupping is tasting coffee roasts, watch this video for more about cupping & Zabar’s coffee).
So into retirement went my French Press and into my daily coffee routine went the Aeropress. It makes hands down then best cup of espresso / coffee that I ever made at home. For around $30.
And in this heat wave, the only way I’m drinking it is iced. It’s delicious.
Here are my favorite ways to drink it:
Straight espresso – ok, this isn’t iced, but I just had to mention it.
Iced Coffee – for this I actually prepare coffee ice cubes. Seriously. I brew some Americano and freeze it in an ice cube tray. Once I have these I can just brew an Americano and have it iced, without being watered down anytime! (Watch the video below to see how an Americano coffee is made.)
Vietnamese Iced Coffee style – this is over ice and with a couple of tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk. I don’t water down the espresso into an Americano, I just pour it hot over a full glass of ice and the melting ice makes just the right coffee ratio.
Ok, so I've seen The Avengers. Once. Yes it was awesome, but perhaps that's enough for me. I know however, that when his friends roll into town my husband is ready to see it again, and perhaps again. Which I love. Time with my girlfriends is a wonderful thing. If I had it my way we'd be sipping tea on the patio with warm sunny weather, a cool breeze, and delicious snacks.
Here's what I have compiled to start this weekend with:
Zabar's Loose Tea This is delicious, fresh, hand packed loose tea. Whenever possible I can the bags and go with loose tea. I never knew how wonderful this was until a co-worker turned me onto using tea pots (rather than a tea ball). During warm weather my favorite flavors are August Peach, Lavender, Roobios Red and Darjeeling India. I do still start every day with English Breakfast.
OmniWare Tea Pot This is the teapot I use daily. It is perfect, bright, cheerful, and the perfect size for one to enjoy. I love the brew basket, it takes a second to clean and looks great on my shelf when not in use.
Prodyne Fruit & Tea Infusion PItcher Since not everyone drinks tea, this is my latest addition to my brunch. It's like being at a spa, you know, where you get that delicious cucumber water. Here you can make it at home: lemon, orange, cucumber, mint (so easy to grow on your patio garden). Just add the fruits, water and enjoy!
