Coffee Talk with Immy from Rwanda at Jones Coffee Roaster @JonesCoffeePas

This Wednesday at Jones: 1:00 – 2:30pm,
Join Us for Coffee Talk with Immy from Rwanda!

On Wednesday, August 31sth, from 1:00pm – 2:30pm at Jones,
Listen to Immy Kamarade tell her stories of helping to rebuild Rwanda through specialty coffee following the 1994 genocide that took 800,000 lives in 100 days.

We hope you will join us!


We’re honored to invite you to come and meet an extraordinary woman and friend of Mireya’s. Immy is currently the chapter president for The International Women’s Coffee Alliance (IWCA) in Rwanda. The IWCA’s mission is to empower women in the coffee sector through training, networking and new trade development.

Immy was featured by NPR as one of “4 African Women Who Are Changing the Face of Coffee.”

Here’s a quick excerpt from the NPR article:

“When Immy Kamarade wanted to spend more time with her kids (sound familiar, working moms?), she knew she had to learn a new trade. She quit her job in the medical field and started a coffee business. She says she’s now working as hard as ever, but it’s more on her own terms. She’s established a cooperative of 100 women who are producing and processing coffee in her home country of Rwanda.”


“‘It’s a new day for Rwanda,’ she says…Women there never had access to education or rights to land ownership, but ‘today a woman owns land like her husband and signs on the land title, and a woman has a right to open a [banking] account.'”

Check out this blog post to read more about the incredible Rwandan coffee that we have in stock at Jones…ready for you to try!

We’ll see you on Wednesday at 1:00pm! Please help us spread the word.

ITT Tech Halts Enrollment – Feds Ban Aid

ITT Tech halts enrollment amid ban on federal aid.
New Enrollments will drop up to 60%
Other institutions are experiencing a similar fate as the federal government increases scrutiny on for profit institutions.

Early this week California banned ITT from accepting new student enrollment at 15 locations.

Earlier this year Massachusetts Attorney General Muara Healey sued ITT for deceptive practices and abuses.

The website currently shows a message “We are not enrolling new students”

Not sure what this means for existing students and aid that is being distributed.

It appears that ITT Technical Institute is in trouble. According to Wikipedia, ITT was established in 1969. With 130 campuses across the nation. Headquarters located in Carmel, Indiana.

ITT Educational Services, Inc. stock symbol ESI traded as high as $72.16 in August 2011. Today August 29, 2016, the stock is trading below $0.45 cents!

Robocall Scammers Beware – US Government, Apple, Google, Verizon and others are Going to Stop You

The biggest technology companies are forming an alliance to stop the scourge of robocalling.

Daily we are bombarded by unsolicited callers, trying to sell something, or con us into the latest scheme.  Pretending to be the IRS or some lost relative in a foreign country jailed needing money to be freed.

The stories are endless and the US Government along with top telecommunication companies and tech companies are working to draw a line in the sand and stop the spread and abuse of telecommunication voice and data networks.

Many have cut services because of the abuse of solicitors. Many are trapped into changing their numbers because of spoofing where scammers are using an innocent person’s number and making calls.

The trend of many to cut services will continue as the abuse of data voice networks continues. It is in the best interest of all legitimate parties to put systems in place to stop this scourge.

It is long overdue, but welcomed to see that the repeated complaining by consumers has moved those with the power to stop this to take action.

We should see some developments in the next couple of months, as soon as mid October 2016.  We can only imagine scammers are working on ways around the systems being discussed and finding a way to hack into legitimate networks and use their networks for their scams.  Whatever is done will to stop the abuse is better than we have today, which basically ranges from services like nomorobo to blocking a number on your cell phone, or blocking private callers. There are other devices are services, but when scammers are spoofing a real person’s number it can be very difficult to stop. This is why technology needs to be developed to introduce another layer of verification and call origination, where a scammer cannot just pick a number and assign it to their caller id and trick people.

The IRS probably has some of the most notable caller complaints, with calls coming from overseas of so called IRS agents, threatening legal action, and requesting that money be sent to avoid incarceration.

Kudos to the US Government and tech companies for stepping it up and putting a stop to this.  With hundreds working to find a solution, it shouldn’t be hard to put a stop to the criminals.

Hatch Chile Festival 2016 – Authentic Hatch Valley New Mexico Chile Roasting – Bristol Farms Bristol Farms @bristolfarms

hatch chile roast

Hatch chiles are only here once a year—in August and September—and that’s why you might find us Hatch-heads going a little nuts. Grown exclusively in the Land of Enchantment (New Mexico), Hatch chiles have a reputation among foodies as the best peppers grown in the U.S. and some people say the world. The Hatch chile has the same shape as its Anaheim cousin, but has firmer flesh and a greater range of flavor, from mild to medium. It’s that strong New Mexico sun, those cool nights, and the mineral-rich soil that makes the flavor so distinct. Hatches are hardly ever eaten raw; it’s when they’re roasted that the smoky richness and depth of flavor really shine. If you buy them fresh, we recommend roasting over an open flame to get the absolute best flavor possible. Once roasted, they’re easy to seed and make a great Southwesterny addition to almost any dish. Hatches have a short harvest season—just six weeks! So come get them while they’re hot!

With the help of Melissa’s Produce, eight exciting New Mexico Hatch Chile Roasting events are being held in front of select Bristol Farms stores. Although we will be roasting in eight locations only, product will be available in all stores starting August 8, 2016.
We invite you c’mon down and awaken your senses with the world’s best chile! Click here for a pdf of our roasting dates and times.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and we’re not talking about the holiday season. We’re talking about Hatch Chile season! We love the sound of the chile roasters ablaze and the aroma of fresh roasted chiles in the air because this means lots of great, spicy dishes are soon to be enjoyed. Our Chefs incorporate the smoky Hatch chile into as many dishes as they can during the very short season, and the recipes below (plus many more) will be available in store for a limited time. Be sure to get your hands on some of these serious eats while they last. Your taste buds will thank you.Fresh and Roasted Authentic Hatch Chiles
Get them while they’re hot! Available in store are mounds of fresh Hatch chiles in addition to roasted, conveniently pre-packed Hatch chiles in a variety of different heat levels.

Bristol’s Own Hatch Chicken Fiesta Sausage
Grill them up and serve them hot on their own or tucked in a roll. These sausages are kickin’! Also, new to our meat departments this season, we’re proud to offer our Hatch Chile Stuffed Beef Flank Steak, and Hatch Chile Meatloaf, among many others. Stop by and speak with our friendly butchers for all the Hatch products we have to offer.

Bristol’s Own Hatch Chile Cornbread & Scones
The smoky, spicy flavor of roasted Hatch chiles elevates our traditional (and beloved) scone and cornbread. Perfect just as they are, but made even more delicious when you warm them up and add butter. We also love going spicy-sweet by slathering them with honey or maple syrup. Available for a limited time—don’t miss out!

Hatch Chile Cheese Fries
Served up in our café, our Hatch Chile Cheese Fries are just what you’ve been craving. Piled high French fries are topped with a smoky, spicy Hatch Chile fondue, fresh roasted and diced Hatch chiles, and vine-ripened tomato.

Hatch Chile Guacamole Burger
Come to our café and take a big, juicy bite of this tasty limited edition burger. Smoky, rich Hatch chiles bring the heat and cool, fresh guacamole balances things out deliciously. Available for a limited time—don’t miss out!
Bristol’s Own Hatch Chile Cream Cheese

Smoky, spicy, Hatch Chiles are perfectly rounded out by the cool cream cheese. This cream cheese goes great on a toasted bagel, or as a kicked-up spread on a hyeroller or sandwich. Pick this one up in our Cheese Department!
Bristol’s Own Hatch Chile Potato Salad
It’s quite addicting, so be warned! We have a saying around here when it comes to Hatch; “It’s now or next year!”, and this statement couldn’t ring any more true than with our Hatch Potato Salad. If you are familiar with our regular potato salad, we start with the base and add fresh, roasted Hatch Chiles as well as dried Hatch Chile powder.

Duane Gillis is a fourth generation farmer who grows 1,200 acres of authentic Hatch Chiles at Gillis Farms in Hatch, New Mexico. With a total of 3,300 acres of farmland, Duane also grows onions, squash, and other vegetable products. Duane’s unique drip irrigation method, as opposed to the furrow method where fields are flooded, feeds the plants just the right amount of water that they need and results in a chile with thick walls and perfect heat. Using the furrow method risks the plants being overwatered, which can prevent the chiles from developing the proper amount of heat. Temperature also plays an important role in the chile’s development; hot days and cool nights is the ideal climate for the perfect Hatch Chile.

Hatch Chile Tips:

1. To test the heat level of a chile, don’t bite the tip! The heat is retained within the veins of the chile, so the farther up you bite, the more accurate the heat measurement will be.
2. Roasted chiles freeze better than fresh chiles. We recommend removing the seeds and outer skin of roasted chiles prior to freezing. Chiles can be frozen in an air-tight bag for up to two years.

3. Chiles get hotter when frozen! When chiles are frozen, they lose their moisture and the result is a more concentrated flavor in the chile. So, if you freeze a hot chile, it will be extra hot by the time it is enjoyed.

Bristol Farms visited Duane and Gillis Farms just prior to the Hatch harvesting season to learn more about this year’s crop, growing practices, and to have some fun in the fields. We are all looking forward to our best season yet!

Sunday Morning Bluegrass Gospel in the Garden – August 21, 2016

Sunday Morning Bluegrass Gospel in the Garden!

The Pasadena Folk Music Society moves off the Caltech campus for the first time ever to present a special Sunday morning concert featuring the fine voices and guitar work of Eric Uglum and Bud Bierhaus, also known as the Vintage Martins. Eric and Bud impressed us greatly some years back when they performed at one of our shows as part of a fine bluegrass group, Copperline, known for wonderful harmonies. The group broke up shortly after that show and Eric and Bud have played music separately in other configurations since then. In the last year, they have been making a few appearances at festivals and now they have a brand new recording. Their harmonies and instrumental skills are better than ever- click here to hear them. Bud won the Texas State Flatpicking Guitar Championship in 2012 and he has performed with Herb Pedersen, Chris Hillman and others. Eric has performed and recorded with Alison Krauss, James King, Stuart Duncan, Ron Block, Rob Ickes and others, as well as raising a couple of sons who are making it in the music world in Nashville.

TrainPetDog – Delivering Discipline & Training to Your Pet




Does your Dog Bark? Or Jump? Do you feel embarrassed with his behavior?

For any dog lover, his/her dog is not less than a family person. With time, dogs have become an important part of human households, where they are seldom treated as working mates. Unlike people of the 18th century, dog owners of today consider their pets as one of their family members and go out of their way to provide the latter with the best of training, diet, grooming and care.


Brief History on Dog Training

A dog learns from every interaction it has with its environment. There are a variety of established methods of animal training procedures such as the Koehler method, motivational training, model-rival training, dominance-based training, and relationship-based training to name a few. The common characteristics of successful methods are knowing the animal’s attributes and personality, accurate timing of reinforcement and/or punishment and consistent communication.

William Koehler was perhaps the first dog trainer who had encouraged dog owners to have a better bonding with their dogs. In fact, before that, dogs were considered as working animals, and were mostly kept in the backyard. His training methods helped dog owners transform these animals into household pets. It is he who introduced the leashes and collars and explained their importance.

Soon, dog owners started realizing the pleasure of taking a simple walk with their dogs. They enjoyed the companionship and vitality of playing with these animals. And that slowly developed into a beautiful relationship of trust, affection and commitment.

Training methods today, have no place for harsh punishments and losing temper. Fortunately, for the last few decades, canine psychology and behavior is being given more importance and based on such aspects, dog training is now about loads of patience and positive reinforcements.

REVIVOGEN – Permanent Solution For Hair Loss






“Hair care” is an overall term for hygiene and cosmetology involving the hair which grows from the human scalp and to a lesser extent facial, pubic and other body hair. Hair care routines differ according to an individual’s culture and the physical characteristics of one’s hair. Care of the hair and care of the scalp skin may appear separate, but are actually intertwined because hair grows from beneath the skin. Scalp skin, just like any other skin on the body, must be kept healthy to ensure a healthy body and healthy hair production. If the scalp is cleaned regularly by those who have rough hair or have a hair-fall problem, it can result in loss of hair. However, not all scalp disorders are a result of bacterial infections. Some arise inexplicably, and often only the symptoms can be treated for management of the condition, for example: dandruff.


No matter how strong and beautiful your hair appear to you, it is extremely important to pay careful attention to their hair care regimen to grow keep them at its best. Taking care of your hair becomes more important when you have a coarse, thin, curly, treated, damaged, dry, dull and oily hair. Hair Loss is not always genetic or inherited. With this kind of hair loss (androgenetic), you lose hair gradually and it will increase as you age. But, in some cases, other factors could lead to your hair falling out. It is especially likely that a non-genetic cause may be the culprit of hair loss if your once healthy hair suddenly and noticeably starts to fall out.
