Destilando Amor (Distilling Love)

Reports reaching us shows that a new Telemundo Telenovela is bursting viewers chart on prime time, in the U.S. It is called Destilando Amor (Distilling Love), according to a new telenovela portal, based in California and registered as Telenovela Garden, which drew an inspiration from our Telenovela Love Garden here.
This telenovela is the adaptation of our popular "Paloma and Diego" of Cuando Seas Mia (When You Are Mine) which itself is a remake of "Café, con Aroma de Mujer" (Coffee With an Aroma of a Woman). Instead of Sergio Basanez and Sivia Navaro, we have we have "Gaviota and Rodrigo" played by Eduardo Yanez and Angelica Rivera. Some other adaptations call it "The Essence of Love". More gists can be found on Wikipedia.

The same story-line and the same coffee plantation settings, but with American flavor. Actor Sergio Sendel played a role similar to Fabian, while our Niurka of Rebeca telenovela fame (Ana Patricia Rojo), played the role of foolish Rodrigo's sister.

Don't forget to check out the latest updates of El Cuerpo del Deseo (Second Chance) at the telenovela site map. We are level at Snippet 72 with Kenya, thanks to my blogging partner from Kenya, Tessie. But I am determined to overtake Kenya this week, and get to the finishing line by the end of next week.
