The Art of Making Coffee at Home
Even though it’s easier to just run down the street to your nearest coffee shop and get a fresh cup of your favorite coffee, there is a certain level of fulfillment that comes with making that perfect cup in your very own kitchen. It may sound like a challenge, especially if your choice of favorite coffees doesn’t include a regular black one for which you just need a pot and coffee filters. Coffee-making is truly a small art form in its own right, but once you master it, not only will you be able to have the perfect cup at any time, but you’ll also save a whole lot of money in the long run, as we all know that purchasing a cup every morning does indeed break the bank. So, in order to keep things on the affordable side, and give you a chance to master an additional skill, let’s dive into what it takes to create that rich, perfectly flavored cup of joe.
Apple iPhone XS and XS Max
Visually the new iPhones are very similar to the most recent iPhone, the X. The real advance is the new chip, the A12 Bionic, which launches apps 30% faster and helps power AR, among other things. The camera system is on point. It has an innovative sensor that works with the ISP and Neural Engine to help you create photos like never before. Seriously, a new sensor creates better image fidelity, greater color accuracy, and reduced noise in low-light shots. Both the XS (5.8″) and XS Max (6.5″) are water resistant to two meters for up to 30 minutes. They also offer stereo sound, faster facial recognition, and boast super retina display. Preorders start September 14, and the phones will start shipping on September 21.

Beginners Guide to Organic Wine
In the world of winemaking, you can see it all, the good, the bad, and the ugly. However, the problem is that conventional products often force you to take the bad (additives) with the good (taste, possibly). This is simply unacceptable. The good news is that a breath of fresh air sweeps across the stale vineyards and cellars. Industrial winemaking is no longer the only game in town. Natural and organic winemakers are champions of the new global wave that is already shifting the whole ecosystem. They act as wardens and facilitators rather than trying to force the wine to fit a particular market-ready mold.
