Father’s Day Treat Ideas

It’s FATHER’S DAY this Sunday and at RITES we want that special man in your life to be SPOILT!

Remember that if your dad isn’t in your life – there is someone who has played that role for you who deserves a show of gratitude, and we’ve got some tips to make that display of affection FUN!



Coffee Types

Every dad loves a good pick-me-up, but how do you know which coffee to choose?

Instant coffee (those thick granules) is the most common coffee available. These are store bought coffees, such as Nescafe or Jacobs.

Filter coffee is very finely ground. It is prepared with a press.

Pod coffee is coffee that you pop into a machine to do the magic for you – voila!


Coffee is roasted for different times to give you a specific flavour. A light roast will not be as bitter as a medium to dark roast.
