Reunion Island Holiday Blend coffees support Coffee Kids
This year, Reunion Island’s Holiday Blend features 100 percent certified organic coffees that have been hand picked from select highland estates. This blend is roasted to a medium-dark Viennese color to add body and caramelized undertones. Reunion Island will donate 25 cents from each pound of their Holiday Blend sold to the non-profit organization Coffee Kids. Holiday Blend is made using premium Arabica beans, and is available in single-cup coffee pods, portion packages, and 5-pound whole bean, and can be enjoyed for a limited time only. Reunion Island Coffee offers customers a free point-of-sale package with all the materials necessary to direct consumer attention to the coffees.

Electronic descaling device solves limescale problems without chemicals
A new technology has emerged that can solve scale problems without the need of salts, chemicals or maintenance. Electronic water conditioning is a relatively new technology that evolved from the use of magnetic fields in water treatment.
Clearwater Enviro Technologies, Inc. manufactures several electronic descalers called “ScaleBlaster.” The ScaleBlaster creates a rapidly changing alternating current in a frequency range which exceeds the best estimate of the internal natural frequency of water. The natural frequency of water varies with temperature, pressure, minerals present, pH and other factors. The current generates an oscillating magnetic field within the pipe. The rapid oscillation of the magnetic field creates a molecular agitation in the water passing through the field. It is this agitation which alters the effects of calcium and magnesium carbonates with regard to limescale formation. Scale is either eliminated completely or is reduced to a fine powder easily wiped away. Basically, existing scale is removed and never forms again.
Depending on the application and water hardness levels, the benefits include savings in chemicals, maintenance, downtime, energy. It also extends the life of equipment. The units are easy to install and require no plumbing. The product is non-invasive and adds nothing to the water. Several models of ScaleBlaster are available depending on pipe size and flow rates.
