Wireless Wednesday for 4/13/16 - Monday After the Masters and Kitchen Gadgets

Rick has been trying out some new gadgets and devices for the kitchen so we are heading into the kitchen this week for Wireless Wednesday...

But first, Rick was invited to play in the annual "Monday After the Masters" at Reynolds Plantation on Monday.... this year with PGA Tour pros, Stewart Cink and Brian Harman.  

Rick actually hit them pretty well, had some birdie opportunities at the tough "Oconee Course" at Reynolds Plantation and made some pars to help the cause

4.  Touch Coffee and Beverage Brewers
Here are a few ways Touch stands out from the competition and makes a coffee-shop quality cup of coffee at home:
·       Touch brewers are completely open platform – this means you can use any K-Cup OR one of their own XBold cups, which have been designed to hold more up to 30% more coffee and deliver better flavor.
·       The brewer is ready to start brewing in under 20 seconds after being off all night.
·       Makes a piping hot cup of coffee by reaching the ideal temperature for a cup of coffee (195-200 degrees Fahrenheit)
·       The hot water has more contact with the coffee grounds, which ensures that all of the coffee flavor is extracted. Other machines take much longer to warm up and then shoot water through the coffee grounds too quickly, so you end up throwing away untapped flavor with the used capsule. Even with a slower, more deliberate brew, when factoring in the warm-up time, the Touch still turns out a cup of joe in a fraction of the time.
·       Its removable 90-ounce water tank has a greater capacity and is shorter in height than its counterparts, meaning you will be refilling less often, and it will be less awkward when you do.
·       Heats just enough water for the selected  cup size as opposed to the entire tank of water, and the machine turns itself off after using, making it much more energy efficient than its competitors.
The T526S offers 8 Cup Size Options: 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18 oz. and Carafe (which holds 26 oz coffee)
