9.10.17 Coffee

“Never trust anyone who doesn’t drink coffee.” -AJ Lee Legend has it that goat herders in the 9th century noticed that their goats appeared to “dance” after eating coffee berries. A local monk then made a drink with coffee berries, it kept him awake, and the original cup of coffee was born. This week, we invite you to pour over, perk, espress, cold brew, French press or chemex your cup’a Joe, while we serve up poetry about coffee.
