A gift of Cholaca, a pure liquid cacao which is “the mother of all chocolate and one of the most nutrient-rich superfoods on Earth,” will make your special someone smile. This liquid chocolate is great hot or cold. Add in the Kup Kollar and Kup Kap to cover both!

Valentine’s Day – gifts for coffee Lovers

Your special someone loves coffee, starts the day with coffee, takes afternoon coffee breaks, drives through a drive-thru coffee shop on the way home. To keep the brown nectar hotter, longer give Kup Kollars.

Save and wash a hot take-out cup or buy in a food store, slip on a Kup Kollar, put a coupon from a favorite coffee shop in the cup, put the cup into a cellophane bag, and tie with ribbons. If you give two Kup Kollars, one can stay in the car for drive-thrus and the other kept at home or work place.

Valentine’s Day – gifts for candy Lovers

February 2nd, 2016

This is a simple inexpensive gift to create. Buy your favorite cold drink at a coffee or tea shop. Wash the container, fill with candy or chocolates, slip on a Kup Kollar, and decorate with ribbons and Valentine accessories. If a ring or jewelry is involved, wrap it in tissue paper and hide it in the candy.

Below are three beautiful examples of creative candy gifts for your Sweetheart!

Cholaca – for coffee lovers

January 26th, 2016

Cholaca buys cacao beans from farms in Ecuador and Peru that use regenerative farming techniques. The liquid is rich in flavonoids and has a high level of antioxidants which means it’s a healthy drink for you.

If you’re a coffee lover, put a shot in your mug or make yourself a cup of hot mocha espresso. For me, the best way to drink coffee is put chocolate in it!

Cholaca – Pure liquid cacao

Cholaca is pure liquid cacao which is “the mother of all chocolate and one of the most nutrient-rich superfoods on Earth” according to their web site. I would agree because it’s delicious hot or cold. I mix four ounces of milk with two ounces of Cholaca then heat or add ice cubes. It’s a liquid dessert!

There are three varieties of Cholaca – Unsweetened, Original, and Sweetened. The ingredients are organic fair trade cacao and water. Original and Sweetened are made with coconut sugar. There are no preservatives, additives, or emulsifiers.

Alyssa is very creative like her Mom. Her creativity shows in the way she puts together a stylish outfit, wraps a gift, or completes a craft project. When she prepares a food dish, it’s always served with a beautiful presentation. Her baked goodies are colorfully decorated. Her creativity and smile will take her far!

Texas family uses cup wraps — The Swimmers

Ramirez 2015 Oct #1 swim meet

Ms Ann and Mr. Arty have two teenagers, Ryan and Alyssa. They have spent many hours in the water indoors or outdoors for fun and competition. Ms Ann designed this creative poster out of love for her children and Koffee Kompanions products! :-)

Ryan is the oldest. His Dad emailed:

“Ryan uses the camo one and you can see it every day on the counter, with his glass in his corner of the counter.  Everybody knows not to take it or use it.  Well maybe his mammie and papu* but that’s it.” 

*Ryan’s very kool grandparents!

Kollar Annie Nov 13_72

Ms Ann, our favorite teacher in Texas, uses Koffee Kompanions products every day. She also gives them as gifts to her co-workers.

I wasn’t surprised to hear from her spouse requesting a Kup Kollar for himself. Arty has a broad grin and a great sense of humor.

“Howdy Irene!!  Greetings from The Lone Star state, the only state willing to secede from the Union, our beers not cold enough, teas not sweet enough, or our glass sweats too much :-)

I’ve been proudly using your Kup Kollar at work with my glass tumbler, it works as expected, not a drip gets on my shirt when I’m drinking.  The problem is the pattern (see attached photo).  I’ve been jazzed a few times about it.  So I think it’s time I put in an order for a grande with a manly-ish print.”

Kollar Arty_72

It seems that Ms Ann’s Dressing Up Kup Kollar found its way to Arty’s desk in his office. I’m sure he has a story and is “sticking to it.”

At my request, Arty emailed various themes for fabrics that he would be interested in. He replied — boots, cowboy hats, bull riding, mixed martial arts, camouflage, cow print, bandannas, and politico party prints.

 

Kollar Grande Boots Arty_72

I had just enough fabric from a left over cowboy print with boots, hats, and saddles to design this one-of-a-kind Kup Kollar Grande. After receiving it in the mail, Arty decided he also needed a blue bandana small Kup Kollar.

A week later, the Texas family drove to Colorado to meet with other family members. Perry and I were invited to join them one evening so I delivered his bandana Kup Kollar. Arty made a request that I’ve never heard before since founding Koffee Kompanions.

I’m happy to know that Arty won’t be having drips of condensation from his glass tumbler falling on his shirt front!
