    CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46) - On a day when lawmakers from both sides of the aisle in Washington are asking Americans to unite, a loyal Starbucks customer says she was targeted for supporting Donald Trump. Starbucks said they are making sure this incident won't happen again. "I don't know what politics has to do with getting a cup of coffee," Kayla Hart said. Hart walked in to Starbucks on East Boulevard in Dilworth on Wednesday morning, wearing a Donald Trump t-shirt. Instead of being greeted with a smile, Kayla said the cashier laughed and her order was labeled with a...

    Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz told employees that President Donald Trump was creating "chaos" that was hurting the U.S. economy, according to a video obtained by Business Insider. The video was taken at a staff meeting in Seattle in February, Business Insider said. In the video, Schultz tells employees that there is "a tremendous amount of pressure and anxiety in America." He goes on to speculate that these feelings are hurting consumer behavior. Schultz went on to tell employees that the coffee chain can provide "an antidote" by providing a "sense of community" to its customers. Starbucks replied to a...

    Growing up on the Mississippi Delta After a just-right, late May rain gave my father’s young cotton crop a much-needed soaking, halting fieldwork on his Mississippi Delta farm, my boyhood best friend and mentor, Jaybird, offered to take my cousin Hunter and me fishing. The night before, we boys pitched a tent in Jaybird’s yard, knowing the old black man, a master storyteller, would entertain us with breathtaking tales as we sat around the campfire.

    When will the avocado madness stop? After “avocado hand”, avocado-themed restaurants and avocado burgers, the latest trend involving the vegetable du jour involves pouring lattes into emptied half-shells. While the “avolatte” started as a joke by a barista in Melbourne, Australia, the irony seems to have been lost on the Internet, instead inspiring copycats to post their own versions of the concoction on Instagram, some in jest, others in earnest. “Combing two of Melbourne’s obsessions – lattes and avo,” reads the caption to the original Instagram post from Truman Cafe. Within about two weeks of being shared, the photo began...

  • Starbucks results disappoint, new CEO must brew up growth

    Kevin Johnson, who succeeded Howard Schultz as CEO this month, on Thursday presided over an earnings call where the company cut its full-year profit target on the heels of disappointing second-quarter sales and stalling growth from its main business in the United States. Shares in the company fell 4.9 percent to $58.30 after Starbucks also announced that it was reviewing its Teavana business after that chain's mall stores dragged down overall sales.

    A Pittsburgh coffee shop is brewing up backlash over a loyalty punch card featuring pictures of President Trump and other conservatives. Black Forge Coffee House owner Nick Miller says the satiric cards are meant to express frustration with the system and nothing more. However, critics complain the punch holes make it look like the politicos have been shot in the forehead. The subjects include Vice President Mike Pence, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and conservative pundits Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly....

    Complete Headline: Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz to STEP DOWN after his anti-Trump vow to hire 10,000 refugees backfired, provoked a boycott by Donald supporters and hit sales. Howard Schultz, the current CEO of Starbucks, is weeks away from stepping down from his role at the giant coffee chain next month. The move, which was announced in December of last year, comes after his vow to hire thousands refugees in response to President Donald Trump's first travel ban appeared to hurt customer sentiment and dent their sales. Trump supporters have called for a boycott of the chain since January 29, when...

    Being a world-class economist, my colleague Walter Williams spends much of his time asking probing questions. Here’s one that he posed to me recently by e-mail: Don: I don’t think there are tariffs on coffee and I know of no organization calling for coffee tariffs. I wonder why. Great, probing question. The answer is that there are very few coffee growers in the United States. In the U.S. states, coffee is grown commercially only in Hawaii. Coffee is also grown commercially also in Puerto Rico. The result of this small number of American coffee growers is that these growers are...
  • Caffeine boosts enzyme that could protect against dementia

    Science Daily ^ | 3/7/2017 | Indiana University
    A study by Indiana University researchers has identified 24 compounds -- including caffeine -- with the potential to boost an enzyme in the brain shown to protect against dementia. The protective effect of the enzyme, called NMNAT2, was discovered last year through research conducted at IU Bloomington. The new study appears today in the journal Scientific Reports. "This work could help advance efforts to develop drugs that increase levels of this enzyme in the brain, creating a chemical 'blockade' against the debilitating effects of neurodegenerative disorders," said Hui-Chen Lu, who led the study. Lu is a Gill Professor in the...

    Cafe X opens in San Francisco, bringing robots to the coffee shop Posted Jan 30, 2017 by John Mannes (@JohnMannes) The world’s first coffee shop opened in Constantinople in 1555. Four hundred and some years later, Cafe X is putting a twist on that old barista model. Opening in San Francisco today, the startup is opting instead to have a large robotic arm craft your caffeinated potions. Founder Henry Hu noticed that baristas spent a majority of their time moving cups around while making espresso drinks. So, much like anyone’s natural reaction to that epiphany, Hu decided to build a...

But we know it won’t be patriotism or loyalty to America. The ever-politicking Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz pledges to hire 10,000 refugees to get even with President Donald Trump and his Stinkin’ Army of Deplorables.

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — After being robbed a handful of times in the past few months, one Baltimore coffee shop is no longer accepting cash to stop the robberies and keep their staff safe. Nowadays, many people don’t carry cash in their wallets day-to-day, and at Park Cafe in Bolton Hill, cash payments are no longer on the menu. “We’re not going to accept cash anymore,” said Park Cafe & Coffee owner David Hart. “I’m going to take that out of the equation.” Park Cafe was robbed five times from October to January. While the armed suspect is now behind bars,...

    Black Rifle Coffee Company, founded by veteran Evan Hafer, is responding to Starbuck's CEO Howard Schultz' pledge to hire 10,000 refugees. Schultz' announcement came last weekend in response to President Trump's recent executive order temporarily barring refugees and visa holders from seven terror ridden countries. "We want to shift the conversation away from foreign policy to domestic issues that hit closer to home. We need to keep in mind that the four things we care about at BRCC are Family, Business, Veterans and country," the company posted on its Instagram page. "And when we say 'country', the taxpayers. Everyone else...

    They’re hiring the wrong people. But another company is doing the right thing. Liberty Alliance vice president Joe Wurzelbacher, who earned the moniker “Joe the Plumber” after his discussion on socialism with then-candidate Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign, said that Starbucks has its priorities all wrong. Howard Schultz, the coffee giant’s CEO, announced plans to hire 10,000 refugees to work in its restaurants. When 11,000 air traffic controllers called his bluff, President Reagan fired all of them–it’s called leadership “I believe he should hire 10,000 veterans” instead of the refugees, Wurzelbacher said. “They’re the ones who made it...
