I’m a big coffee drinker – at least one cup every morning. I like my coffee strong with just a smidge of cream, no sugar. But when I read about Dave’s cold-brewed vanilla coffee syrup on Kaufmann Mercantile, I have to say I was curious. The syrup is made in Charlestown, RI from “cold-brewed Brazilian beans roasted by hand and simmer with Madagascar vanilla and cane sugar”. Pour it over a scoop of vanilla ice cream, into a cocktail, or add a splash to your morning cup o’ joe.

Eat. Drink. Go to bed.
I’m a real sucker for everyday home/office objects that have are of the best design and aesthetics so I’m always on the hunt for new resources. My good friend Tyler turned me on to Kaufmann Mercantile this past weekend and I’ve been scouring their blog and drooling over their shop’s goods for the past 48 hours straight. Founder Sebastian Kaufmann (born and raised in Germany) started the Mercantile blog in 2009 with an aim to, “rekindle curiosity and revive knowledge about the things we use every day. We want to extend the discussion of art and design to everyday objects. We also believe materials and the way they are produced (by nature or humans) can be seen as art”. In the summer of 2010 the Kaufmann Mercantile shop launched, offering well-made products that will not need to be replaced, thus providing a more environmental and design-conscious alternative to cheap trinkets that are too often consumed in bulk in homes around the world.
