Are you like me, palanggas? Someone who enjoys light but filling meals? Since we have all become very conscious of our health, I’ve been on the lookout for meals that are not so heavy but are still filling, nutritious, and of course, delicious.

My most recent favorites are paninis, those savory pastries with fillings that you can eat for breakfast, lunch and even dinner. The freshly baked paninis at Seattle’s Best Coffee are really good. They’re grilled fresh and served hot and yummy. Now, they’ve added two new flavors: the SPAM Luncheon Meat & Egg and the Bacon & Cheese with Aioli.

Customers can never go wrong with the SPAM Luncheon Meat & Egg Panini. Seattle’s Best Coffee has made this all-time favorite even better with scrambled eggs and creamy cheese.

Who doesn’t love bacon, dahlings? Now you can enjoy your bacon like never before with the new Bacon & Cheese with Aioli Panini, freshly baked panini with smoked pan-fried bacon topped with fresh mozzarella and cheddar cheese with aioli spread. It’s truly a delight in every bite!

Pesto Tomato & Mozzarella Panini

Seattle’s Best Coffee’s popular panini favorites are still available: the Ham & Cheese Panini made with premium ham slices covered with layers of mozzarella cheese; and the Pesto Tomato & Mozzarella Panini with ripe tomatoes topped with pesto sauce. There’s also the irresistibly cheesy Quattro Formaggi Panini, made with melted slices of fresh mozzarella, Parmesan, mild cheddar cheese and sharp cheddar cheese. Lastly, the classic pairing of Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Panini with slices of smoked salmon, lettuce and cream cheese — perfect for seafood cravings with a twist.


Head on to a Seattle’s Best Coffee store nearest you, dahlings!

The integrated flow restrictor in Grohe EcoJoy technology automatically saves water consumption by up to 50 percent.

Saving water for the world

Palanggas, did you know that at least two billion people around the world don’t have access to safe water?

That is why Grohe, the leading global brand for bathroom solutions and kitchen fittings, continues to carry on its commitment to protecting water through its wide range of products that use clever water technology.

The Grohe Infrared faucets, for example, reduce water consumption by 70 percent because water only flows when needed. The mixer switches off whenever the user retracts the hands from underneath the faucet while soaping or after a pre-set time.

To complement its innovative faucets, Grohe also developed technology to efficiently reduce water consumption by up to 50 percent. For one example, there’s the Grohe EcoJoy shower system, available in numerous models across most styles and price points. Its integrated low restrictor automatically saves water, from five liters to up to nine liters per minute.


There’s also the Grohe EcoButton, which efficiently saves water without compromising the shower quality. By simply pushing a button, palanggas, users can increase the water volume if they want to. This extra step aims to make users aware of their actions and nudge them towards more sustainable water consumption.

Aside from the faucets, Grohe’s cisterns are carefully designed to be ecologically sensible. Its start/stop and dual-flush systems let users select their preferred economical flush. Consumers can use as little as three liters with the small flush and as little as six liters for an ecologically balanced big flush.

Its watersystem like the Grohe Blue Home users can save up to seven liters of water per liter of drinking water, which is comparable to the production of process of bottled water. With the Grohe Blue Home, users can only use their desired amount of water to quench their thirst, dahlings.

Let us do our part in saving water so that we, and generations to come, can enjoy this precious resource.
