IKARUS GREEK COFFEE

Most of you are familiar with the story of Ikarus in Greek Mythology.  Seeking to escape exile from the island of Crete. Ikarus and his father, Daedalus, crafted a set of wings out of feathers and wax.  Before taking flight, Daedalus urged his son Ikarus to fly halfway between the sun and the sea; “ If you fly too low, the sea’s mist will dampen the feathers, if you fly too high the sun’s heat will melt the wax that binds your wings” his father warned.  Exhilarated by his newfound power of flight, Ikarus ignored his fathers warnings and flew too close to the sun which melted his wings and caused him to fall to his death.  

The story of Ikarus is thousands of years old and the moral is still relevant today: To avoid extremes and to be balanced.  This holds true in all aspects of our lives:  Physcial, mental, financial, spiritual and, for us, even coffee!  After many hours spent perfecting the blend, roast, and grind of this coffee we are proud to introduce our new Greek Coffee Blend: IKARUS.

The blend, roast, and brewing process can be traced back to the Greek Island of Ikaria, well known for the longevity of its residents.  In addition to the clean air, olive oil, and healthy lifestyle,  many residents of this BLUE ZONE attribute their longevity to daily consumption of boiled coffee!

Research shows that boiled Greek coffee is rich in polyphenols and antioxidants and contains only a moderate amount of caffeine.  Studies provide a connection between drinking this coffee and increased cardiovascular health.  

I invite you to try Ikarus Greek coffee in your home!
