Summer 2016: 

Fun and easy recipes to try now! 

 June 27, 2016 
 
Hello there! Summer is officially here, and what goes best with those warm, sunny days? Not hot coffee, that's for sure! Today, we are going to show you how you can feel refreshed and caffeinated all day with one of our faves: cold brew coffee. To start, you'll need the following:
  • 1/3 cup whole beans
  • 1 1/2 cup cold water
  • Ice
  • Milk
  • Coffee Press
  • Spoon for stirring coffee
  • Grinder
Today we are going to be using the Timolino 20 oz. Presto Vacuum Coffee Press in Pearl White. The Presto is made out of 18/8 stainless steel both inside and out, and the vacuum insulation holds your coffee at desired temperatures all day long. Bonus, it comes in 6 beautiful colors! 

Start off by grinding your beans into a coarse grind.


                                       

      

      Start off by grinding your coffee beans into a coarse grind. If you grind the beans too fine, they’ll be small enough to get through the mesh filter on the coffee press, which completely defeats the purpose. If the grounds are too big, the water won’t extract as much of that rich and deep flavor we want.


                        

        

        Once you have your coffee grounds, pour them into the Presto coffee press along with the cold water. Stir the coffee and water until they are completely blended together. Next, place the lid over it with the plunger in the “up” position.


                      

        

        The Presto should stay in a cool, dark place anywhere between 6 and 24 hours. For our coffee, we will place it in the refrigerator for 15 hours.  Your times may vary depending on your patience and when you start brewing it. If you’d like your coffee to be ready by the time you leave for work in the morning, we suggest preparing it at about 5 or 6 o’clock the evening before.

        Once you’ve allowed your coffee to steep for the recommended time, take it out of the refrigerator and simply push down the plunger slowly – very slowly – to filter the grounds from the coffee.


                         

        

        Finally, put some ice into your favorite Timolino travel mug (we’re using the 16oz Icon Vacuum Travel Tumbler) and pour your cold brew to dilute it. Add some milk or sweetener if you’d like, or simply drink it black and enjoy the rich, bold taste. Your drink will stay ice cold all day thanks to our vacuum Icon. Any left over coffee? Save it for tomorrow! Cold brew coffee can be stored for up to two weeks before it goes stale!

        So there you have it! The perfect brew for the perfect day! If you liked this recipe, make sure you follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for more! And stay tuned for future summer recipes like this. See you soon!

Timolino’s 17 oz Travette Tea Maker
"I love the creamy colour of this versatile tea pot – like unsalted natural butter or my favourite Fiat colour. As you can see from the pic on the right, this thermal teapot comes with a removable nylon infuser which is nice and deep with ample room for leaves to steep. I say removable, because it’s nice to have the option to steep the leaves loose in the pot if desired. It has a non slip base which is a great advantage if your surface isn’t completely level. It doesn’t seal because it has a pour opening, so while it is fantastic for keeping tea warm while you are away from home, it won’t travel well in your back pack! The Timolino Travette, is also available in metallic red and stainless steel. Available from Thés Joséphines for $36.95 US (free shipping on orders over $60)"

 CSUF Grad Orientation
July 30, 2015

    

Fall is just around the corner, and with the changing leaves comes the change of pace for all the students in our lives. Whether you're walking to class, taking a lecture or unwinding in the quad, it's important to stay hydrated. It's easy to forget to drink up when your routine's pace picks up. Having a few sips here and there throughout the day will do wonders for you mentally, physically and emotionally.

Water makes up over 50% of our bodies. Break it down even more and we find that it composes over 80% of our blood, 75% of our brain and more than 20% of our bones. When we become dehydrated, our blood is one of the first of our temple's factories to take a hit. Blood thickens, becoming more difficult for the heart to pump to vital organs. Thicker blood also carries less oxygen. Oxygen powers your brain. The less O2 we feed our noggins, the more ineffective it becomes. So, no matter how your days change, keep up your water intake and watch your body glow.

Join the us as we welcome the brightest new bulbs of our futures. California State University Fullerton new graduate orientation is Saturday, August 15, 2015 starting at 8:30am. The Timolino booth will include a raffle, prize wheel, free gifts, coupons and just good 'ol fashioned stainless steel hydration gear with your name on it (not literally with your name on it..but we can definitely make that happen!). Hope to see you there!

The 4th of July is more than a favorite holiday to many. It's the pinnacle of the summer, time for the annual family vacation or weekend bbq with friends. Watermelon, hotdogs, hamburgers and potato salad. Nothing says summertime r&r like these traditional favorites. You can spend more time enjoying the holiday and less time prepping, cleaning and freshening up your party platters by utilizing your favorite Timolino mug that may be put away in the cupboard until your back-to-work, Monday morning coffee or tea. Our vacuum insulated mugs will keep your beverage icy cold for the entire afternoon. Throw your frosty beverage in your bag with no worry of annoying moisture sweating onto your other belongings. With convenient 34oz., 40oz., and even 50oz. size bottles that include adjustable length carrying straps, you will be good to go for the day. These larger sizes are perfect for stashing frozen, bite-size pieces of fruit or crisp veggies. Dips and dressings that will be left out for the day won't leak, spoil or attract bugs. All of our containers are electro-polished, 18/8 food-grade steel that is always easy to clean. 

Have a memorable and safe 4th of July 2015. Don't forget to take a selfie, it lasts longer, and tag #Timolino in your holiday adventure!
