    Coffee House Culture in the USA

    Coffee Culture Comes To America It is generally agreed that coffee, though known in the colonies that would become the United States, did not become the popular beverage it was today until the Boston Tea Party in 1773. As Tori Avey puts it, that is “when making the switch from tea to coffee became something […]

  • Holiday Ideas for Your Coffee Shop – Father’s Day

    Father’s Day doesn’t get as much hype as Mother’s Day, and I think that’s probably because people are more likely to have absent fathers than absent mothers. They’re also more likely to have unsentimental fathers (like mine, who got genuinely mad at all of us for getting him Christmas presents this year). Historically, it’s been […]

    Navigating Your Inner Dairy Sensitivities in a Milk & Sugar World

    I recently discovered that after an entire lifetime drinking milk like it was water and eating cheese like it was candy, I have a dairy sensitivity. In fact, I’m so sensitive to it I probably shouldn’t consume it at all in consideration for those around me, if you catch my…drift. I’m Not Vegan Cheese This […]

    Not everyone has a mother, but a lot of people have at least someone they consider a mother figure or someone they honor on that national holiday on May 14th. Additionally, Mother’s Day, no matter how many people have a mother or grandmother or mother-figure to celebrate, is one of the busiest days of the […]

    All Things Unicorn

    I was rather confused and piqued when my Instagram feed this week continued to be filled with a happily colorful new drink from Starbucks, the Unicorn Frappuccino. I spotted the drink first when working at my local Starbucks. But as I go in for black coffee and wifi I didn’t pay much attention beyond noting […]

    Coffee and Liquor

    I’ve been having a debate with myself and some friends for the past couple years about which is the most normalized drug our society uses. Some think it’s cannabis, but I think that still has too little overall use and acceptance to qualify. One thinks it’s sugar, which I’m wont to agree with because it’s […]

    Children and Coffee: Yes or No?

    Before my mom would let me drink coffee, she told me I couldn’t because it would stunt my growth. As my mother is now just under 5 foot, I inevitably made some witty (witty in my mind, at least) comment about that being the reason she’s as short as she is. Thankfully, my mother wasn’t […]

Let me be clearer: coffee doesn’t cause cancer (can actually prevent it), coffee doesn’t worsen chances for osteoporosis (can also actually prevent it), and now, coffee may not actually be a total no-no during pregnancy. I grew up […]
