To the average person, making coffee is simple. You open the can, measure some coffee out into the filter, pour the water in the reservoir, press the ON button, and wait for that delicious brew to perk up your morning. For others, the process becomes much more complex, involving scales, thermometers, strange looking carafes and exotic beans until the process becomes as much science as it does art. Thankfully, there’s a middle ground, where we can venture and explore how varying things affect the taste of our morning brew. In general, there are four primary factors in determining how your coffee ends up: the bean, (both the roast and the grind), the water, and the ratio. This week, we’re going to discuss coffee beans, both the roasting and the grinding and how the differences make a distinct cup of java. Continue reading »

So who here thinks Dyson vacuums are amazing, both to look at and to vacuum with? I don’t know about you, but I for one think they’re pretty stylish. Dyson is basically the Apple of the vacuum world in both its design and innovative attitude towards its respected industry.
Well if you’re a Dyson fan and in the Chicago area the first ever U.S. based Dyson pop-up store opened and it will be running until April 30th.
We here at Crucial Vacuum had the pleasure of getting a first hand look at the store and it was rather spectacular and simplistic in its design.
The purpose of this Dyson pop-up store is to showcase their latest products and give customers a hands on experience like never before. Considering the price of Dyson products this is a great opportunity for customers to see what all the fuss is when it comes to the vacuum giant.
As of now Dyson has permanent stores located in both the U.K. and Japan, but as for the future of other U.S. stores? This all depends on how well received this ‘test store’ goes in Chicago. If Dyson is anything its appealing and I’d expect this store to attract a lot of attention from consumers.
The Chicago Tribune goes into further detail about the store and Dyson’s desire to get in touch with their customers.
For those of you with Dyson products, or possibly looking to purchase one in the future look no further when it comes to replacement parts for your Dyson. As always we here at Crucial Vacuum got you covered.
How many of you are fans of the movie ‘Ghostbusters?’ Probably a lot of you because that movies awesome. Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and the late great Harold Ramis took us on a ghostly adventure of epic proportions from battling spirits to blowing up a giant marshmallow man. Now you’re probably saying to yourself, “Why is Crucial Vacuum talking about Ghostbusters?”.
Well two reasons. First, “Why not?” and second we’ve designed a backpack vacuum that not only will have you cleaning your house efficiently, but you’ll feel like a Ghostbuster while doing it.
The Crucial Backpack Vacuum & Blower is a rather incredible invention, much like the Proton Pack itself. With its sleek design and sheer EPICNESS the Crucial Backpack Vacuum will have your home spotless in no time at all.
Weighing only 12 pounds, this highly portable vacuum is perfect for anyone who is tired of lugging around larger vacuums, especially when it comes to cleaning stairs and navigating around furniture.
The vacuum also serves as a blower so whether you’re looking to clean around your house, or give your deck and patio a quick once over this backpack vacuum has you covered…literally come to think of it.
It comes with a variety of attachments including:
- Dusting brush, crevice tool, pet hair remover, blower attachments, 2 floor brushes, a flexible hose and wand attachment.
- Also included 5 cloth bags and 2 filters.
If you have kids go as far as making vacuuming a ‘fun game’ with this device. You may be able to dupe your kids into doing their chores while having a blast. At least that’s what I would do if I was a parent…come to think of it vacuuming is pretty awesome now that I have one of these things. I probably wouldn’t let my kids vacuum because I was too busy pretending to be Dr. Peter Venkman.
Also, if you’re looking for some more information on cleaning your house in style be sure to check out the product page for full details.
Now I leave you all with this random picture of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. Stay classy Crucial Readers and keep on vacuuming.
