Trade Coffee is an online matchmaker for coffee lovers and their coffee — here's how a subscription works and what it costs



  • Trade Coffee Co. is the online matchmaker for coffee lovers and their coffee.
  • From run-of-the-mill "coffee that tastes like coffee" to "hints of something different" and downright "surprising and unconventional," Trade offers lovingly grown and roasted beans for all.
  • Trade also offers equipment from coffee pots and cold brew kits to filters and scales — basically everything you need to make the perfect cup of coffee.
  • With subscriptions starting at $12.50 per 12-ounce bag, it's a step up in price from what you might find at big-box stores. But if you enjoy your morning cup, there's nothing more precious and empowering than dialing it in perfectly each and every morning.
  • Insider Picks teamed up with Trade Coffee for an exclusive deal. Use the promo code "BI30" to save an extra 30% on your order.
"Put your mug's fate in our hands with over 2,000,000 happy coffee matches — and counting!" may reek of gimmick, but we tried Trade Coffee Co.'s matchmaking service , and I, for one, have nothing but good things to say for the brand. Why? Never has a coffee buying experience ever led me through six web pages of consultative questions in order to pair me with a bag of coffee. After the folks (or algorithm) at Trade presented me with a suggestion, I took it. Now, here I sit, feet up, sipping from a soupcon that is surely delivering me ever closer — with each shot — to a time and place where I can confidently claim that I am, indeed, living my very best life. Okay, I might be taking you for a bit of a ride here, but if you want to learn how to profile your ideal cuppa (and maybe self, while you're at it), there may be no better way than with the help of Trade Coffee . Depending on your profile, Trade may match you with The Classics, which is their best value plan at $25 for two 12-ounce bags. Then there's The Hookup for those seeking something "surprising and unconventional" at $15 to $22 per 12-ounce bag. The process, intimidating at the outset, perhaps, is so thoroughly yet tidily detailed that it's a breeze. What we like most about the selection and customization process is how unassuming it is. You don't feel like you're diving in headfirst with a sommelier who's just out to make you feel uninformed. Instead, you get a clean page layout with four options to identify your level of java snob-hood: from newbie to nerd. Číst dále >>>

The best places to buy dress shoes for women


It is simply the case that one can never own too many pairs of shoes, and when it comes to work-appropriate shoes, the "correct" number of pairs is practically infinite. Of course, finding a pair of flats or so-called modest heels that are both attractive and acceptable to the corporate powers that be can be a bit of a challenge. But with some help from our favorite office-ready shoe purveyors, you may want to keep your shoes close and your credit card closer. When picking a great pair of work shoes, you'll want to keep a few things in mind. First and foremost, are they comfortable? After all, it's difficult to feel empowered when you're constantly bending over to adjust your strap or massage your heel. You'll also want to consider heel heights. While I prefer to live about four inches above my natural height, I would also prefer to sleep and pet cats for a living. Alas, in order to be part of the professional world, it seems that society has dictated that I live in heels of a more moderate one-to-two-inch height. Also important to consider is the width of your heel. As impressive as your ability to teeter-totter around on a one-inch circumference may be, that's probably not something that you can put on a resume. Luckily, you don't need to be in stilettos to pull off a killer look. Furthermore, you may want to consider your preferred work shoe color. While black, nude, and the occasional navy shoe are common suspects, it's also well worth adding a pop of color to your wardrobe with some more creative hues. Don't shy away from white, either — sure, they'll show dirt a bit more easily, but let's be honest, in your sterile office environment, you're not really at risk of getting things particularly dirty. Regardless of which of our favorite office-appropriate shoe purveyors you choose, we're sure that you'll have a decidedly professional (and fashion-forward) experience. Here are the best places to buy women's dress shoes online:
  • Best dress shoes for women overall: Everlane
  • Best work-to-weekend shoes for women: Madewell
  • Best work-appropriate boots for women: M. Gemi
  • Best dress shoes for women who like variety: J. Crew
  • Best sustainable dress shoes for women: Rothy's

Amex Platinum vs Amex Gold: Which rewards credit card is better for you?


AmEX Platinum vs. AmEx Gold 4x3

  • Both the Platinum Card® from American Express and the American Express® Gold Card offer valuable rewards on purchases, along with large welcome bonuses and useful benefits.
  • Both cards also have a few annual statement credits that can offset their annual fees.
  • Given the similarities, we've laid out the differences to help you pick the best card for you.
American Express refreshed and relaunched its Gold Card in late 2018, giving it new benefits and rewards — many of which are dining-focused — in an effort to make it a stronger competitor in an increasingly crowded credit card market.

What's the difference between the Amex Gold and the Amex Platinum? AmEX Platinum vs. AmEx Gold Chart Both cards have tangible benefits like annual statement credits that make up for the annual fee, but there are some pretty significant differences between them. The Amex Platinum is the more premium of the two cards — it has a $550 annual fee compared to a $250 annual fee for the Amex Gold . The Platinum Card offers more luxury travel benefits, like airport lounge access and monthly statement credits for Uber, while the Amex Gold 's perks and bonus categories are more geared toward dining.

21 of the most expensive watches worn by the world's top athletes, including Rafael Nadal's virtually indestructible $725,000 timepiece


rafael nadal us open 2019

Expensive Swiss mechanical watches don't have much practical use on the field, court, or track, though it's not uncommon to see the world's biggest athletes wearing high-end, luxury timepieces during their events. Rafael Nadal won his 19th Grand Slam title at the US Open on September 8, putting him right behind Roger Federer 's record 20 Grand Slam titles. That kind of athletic prowess is a marketing tool. Watch brands are eager to sponsor elite athletes, from tennis champions like Nadal and Federer to fighters like Floyd Mayweather , not for their horological expertise but for their aura — which sells. Read more: Rafael Nadal and Odell Beckham Jr. may play in their stupidly expensive watches, but that doesn't mean you should too When Nadal won his latest Grand Slam title, he was wearing his famed Richard Mille timepiece, which retails for roughly $725,000 .

The Sacklers tentatively agreed to pay $3 billion out of their pockets and dissolve Purdue Pharma to settle thousands of opioid lawsuits



The Sacklers — one of America's most controversial families — have tentatively agreed to pay out of pocket to resolve thousands of lawsuits against the family business, OxyContin-maker Purdue Pharma, according to The New York Times . The tentative settlement requires the Sacklers to pay $3 billion of their own fortune in cash over the next seven years, The Times  reported. Purdue Pharma will likely file for bankruptcy and be split into separate companies, two people involved in the negotiations told  The Times . A new company will continue to sell OxyContin, with all proceeds benefiting the plaintiffs.  "Purdue Pharma continues to work with all plaintiffs on reaching a comprehensive resolution to its opioid litigation that will deliver billions of dollars and vital opioid overdose rescue medicines to communities across the country impacted by the opioid crisis," the company said in a statement emailed to Business Insider.

In the process leading up to the Sacklers' tentative $3 billion settlement, state attorneys general first asked the Sacklers to pay $4.5 billion, according to NPR . The family declined, and counter-offered a $3 billion payment, Purdue Pharma's head of corporate affairs and communications, Josephine Martin, told NPR September 9. The plaintiffs, however, "needed more security on the part of the Sacklers that the money they were pledging, they would in fact pay," North Carolina state attorney general Josh Stein said on NPR's "Morning Edition."

How to turn off autocorrect on a Samsung Galaxy S10 in 2 different ways


Galaxy S10

  • It's easy to turn off autocorrect on the Samsung Galaxy S10 if you don't find the function useful. 
  • You'll have two different options to turn off autocorrect — you can disable predictive text entirely, in which case your phone will stop making suggestions, or you can just turn off auto replace, so you can still manually choose suggested word alternatives. 
  • You can find the autocorrect settings on your Galaxy S10 in Settings under keyboard controls. 
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories .
Autocorrect might initially seem like a miracle — your keyboard corrects typos as you type. It's especially handy on your phone, since the keys are so small and you're often forced to type with your thumbs.  But autocorrect can also be notoriously wrong. If you find that autocorrect is more of a liability than an asset, you can easily disable it on your Galaxy S10 .  Here's how to do it.  Check out the products mentioned in this article: Samsung Galaxy S10 (From $899.99 at Best Buy) How to turn off autocorrect on the Samsung Galaxy S10 1. Start the Settings app.  2. Tap "General management." autocorrect 1 3. Tap "Language and input." 4. In the Default keyboard section, note the current keyboard – this is the one you will need to select when you disable autocorrect. autocorrect 2 5. In the Keyboards section, tap "On-screen keyboard." 6. Tap the currently selected keyboard which you noted in the previous step.  7. Tap "Smart typing." You now have two choices:
  • Turn off "Predictive text" by swiping the button to the left. This turns off automatic corrections, but also disables the strip of suggested words above the keyboard. 
  • Tap "Auto replace" and turn it off by swiping the button to the left. This turns off the automatic corrections, but leaves the strip of suggested words above the keyboard, so you can choose them manually if you prefer.

The best compasses you can buy



  • If you love to hike and go off the grid, you need a great compass.
  • The Suunto M-3 Leader is our top pick for your go-to compass because it has a practical Finnish design, a durable baseplate protractor, a quick and highly accurate steel needle, and good price tag.
You've probably used your smartphone's GPS to find your way around on more than one occasion. Many phones today even have built-in magnetometers that allow the phone to effectively function as a compass by pointing you toward magnetic north. When you're in the wilderness far away from civilization, however, your electronics can run out of juice, get wet, lose their signal, or fail in other ways, and getting lost in the great outdoors can be a serious hazard. Even if it's not a matter of life and death , being unable to find your way around can quickly ruin what could be an enjoyable camping or hiking trip. It, therefore, behooves the modern scout to invest in a good analog compass and to learn how to use it . Aside from practical safety concerns about not getting disoriented in the wild,  land navigation can offer a lot of plain old fun for those who enjoy practicing and mastering old-fashioned skills. Modern compasses used for land navigation fall into two general categories: Baseplate compasses and lensatic or prismatic compasses. Baseplate compasses feature a needle suspended in a liquid-filled housing on top of a flat see-through protractor marked with various measurements for calculating distance and plotting a course when placed on top of a map. Some also feature mirrored lids for added sighting and signaling functionality. The lensatic/prismatic compass is a slightly more old-school design: Favored by a number of military forces including the US Army, lensatics use a rotating disc instead of a floating needle and feature a lid with a sighting notch. This allows the navigator to align the sight with a distant landmark while establishing a bearing (or azimuth) using the dial. No matter which design you favor, any well-made compass will be durable, accurate, and feature precise gradations to help you plot a good course. The biggest compass brands today are Suunto, Brunton, and Cammenga. Another name you may see is Silva, but the US-based maker is completely different than the original Swedish-made Silva compasses, and so we don't recommend these. You're good to go with any of the "big three" compass makers, but which type you need depends on your intended use and budget. We've rounded up the top five compasses you can buy, from a basic budget-friendly baseplate to a military-grade lensatic. Here are the best compasses you can buy: Updated on 09/11/2019 by Les Shu: Updated links, formatting, and prices.SEE ALSO:  The best tents you can buy The best compass overall The Suu Číst dále >>>
