Coca leaves

Dear friends of Gramm, we want to share with you some information about coca leaves:

Coca tea has been heavily used by indigenous people in South America for thousands of years and is made by steeping the leaves of the coca plant in boiling water. This allows the powerful phytonutrients to infuse into the water. In many parts of South America, this tea is known as mate de coca, and the greenish-yellow color is reminiscent of green tea.

The many benefits of coca tea are mainly the result of phytonutrients, as well as vitamin C, vitamin E, and B-family vitamins.

Recommendation for Emilio of All Trades, handyman

In July I asked a bilingual handyman who has been highly recommended to fix my oil radiator heater. He replaced a knob on a control that had melted and did nothing more. Why did the knob melt? Why was it necessary to put a metal knob on the heater so that it wouldn’t melt? The heater is at least 30-years-old, an old fashioned, heavy duty radiator style heater that had worked beautifully and suddenly started overheating. Now this gentleman speaks English and I speak Spanish, so there should have been no misunderstanding when I told him we needed him to open the heater to see why it was overheating the thermostat knob. He replaced the knob, telling me he hunted all over to find one that wouldn’t melt and charging me $20 for a knob replacement and explained that he had not opened the heater at all.
