    While it’s true that Foxconn won’t be creating the eighth wonder of the world, building a 20-million-square-foot manufacturing campus, or hiring 13,000 employees, it does have big plans, which were announced last week. Ahem. Foxconn will be manufacturing a line of fully automated, robotic brewing machines that that can push out 100 cups of coffee in a single hour — equaling the output of three to four baristas, according to the Briggo company, which sells the machines, which they have dubbed a “coffee haus”. The coffee haus will end all the travails you’ve no doubt suffered trying to order a...
  • Why Pay $6 for Iced Coffee? These 7 Machines Make Coffee House-Quality Cold Brew

    Iced coffee season used to have a very clear demarcation: The day you swapped out your paper for plastic (cup) and your steamed milk for chilled. Usually this laid-back, low-fuss changeover coincides with the warming of the weather. But with the spread of high-octane and flavorful variants such as cold brew—coffee made through a process that involves steeping grounds in cold water—it’s easy to let the season last all year. Besides, as hot coffee has become more luxe, it’s about time iced coffee catch up. And if you craft your chilled coffee at home, with one of these seven handsome...

    U.S —As the nation plunges headlong into another fall season, the FDA has officially recommended pouring all pumpkin spice flavored beverages down the nearest drain immediately. Stressing that they are “all just completely abhorrent and disgusting,” a spokesman for the agency confirmed Wednesday that the only safe and honorable course of action when confronted with a pumpkin spice latte, coffee, or beer this autumn is to quickly and without hesitation open the beverage and dump every drop of it down a nearby drain or toilet. The FDA further advised caution when dumping the drinks, warning against accidentally spilling or splashing...
  • Mormon Church warns that coffee, vaping are no-nos despite fancy names, alluring flavors

    The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has issued a warning to members that coffee is prohibited no matter how fancy the name, that vaping is banned despite the alluring flavors and that marijuana is outlawed unless prescribed by "competent" doctors. The new guidance in the August issue of a church youth magazine does not include fundamental changes to the religion's strict health code, but clarifications are significant and seem to reflect growing concern about young Latter-day Saints' adherence to the rules. The article says it aims to clear up issues that could be confusing for young people within...

    Tribune Review (Suburban Pittsburgh) ^ | 24 July 2019 | Mary Pickels
    The owners of a new cafe in Greensburg hope that the lure of coffee, along with the cuteness factor of cats, will help more rescue animals find permanent homes. Katelynn and Rob Jones are looking to open Cattfeinated Cat Cafe around October in the former Shalimar Bazaar at 159 E. Otterman St. Katelynn Jones is president of Wayward Whiskers Animal Rescue, a volunteer-run Greensburg cat rescue. The couple started the rescue, which is operated through foster homes, in 2015. “We are cat lovers and rescuers,” Jones says.
  • The Rise of Coffee Shaming - Personal-finance gurus really hate coffee.

    Suze Orman wants young people to stop “peeing” away millions of dollars on coffee. Last month, the personal-finance celebrity ignited a controversy on social media when a video she starred in for CNBC targeted a familiar villain: kids these days and their silly $5 lattes. Because brewing coffee at home is less expensive, Orman argued, purchasing it elsewhere is tantamount to flushing money away, which makes it a worthy symbol of Millennials’ squandered resources. Orman’s not alone in this view. The old guard of personal finance has spent years turning the habit of buying coffee into a shorthand for Americans’...

    American Thinker ^ | 06/18/2019 | Brian Joondeph
    Every week there is another health pronouncement saying what is now good for you and what is going to kill you. Unfortunately, the “what” is often interchangeable -- what was supposed to kill you last week is now suddenly good for you or vice versa. Foods, supplements, and activities, all studied extensively and determined to be either good or bad, then subject to a new study, with the opposite conclusion. How can this be? Is the science that fickle? Or is this lousy research? Some studies note an association which they spin as causation, like determining that older ladies...
  • Drinking 25 cups of coffee a day is still safe for the heart, study says

    MSN/ CNBC ^ | June 3, 2019
    People who drink up to 25 cups of coffee a day don't run a greater risk of a heart attack. That's the remarkable finding from a study of over 8,000 people in the U.K., carried out by the British Heart Foundation (BHF). Previous studies have linked drinking coffee with a hardening of the arteries that pump blood from your heart to other parts of the body. If arteries become stiff, it can increase stress on the heart and raise a person's chance of having a heart attack or stroke. But the fresh research, presented Monday at the British Cardiovascular Society...

    A good chunk of regular coffee drinkers know that coffee isn’t just great at getting them awake in the morning—it also makes them get up and go poop. But while coffee’s laxative powers are well-known, it’s not clear why exactly this happens. To get to the bottom of this mystery, some scientists decided to do exactly what you’d expect scientists to: They gave lab rats some coffee. Their preliminary results, presented this weekend at a research conference aptly named Digestive Disease Week, seem to reaffirm a suspicion that coffee’s poop-making prowess has nothing to do with caffeine. Coffee might also...

    In fact, drinking six or more cups per day will increase your risk of heart disease by up to 22 percent, the report published May 10 finds. The link between caffeine and heart disease stems from the risks associated with high blood pressure, which can be triggered by excessive caffeine consumption. “Most people would agree that if you drink a lot of coffee, you might feel jittery, irritable or perhaps even nauseous – that’s because caffeine helps your body work faster and harder, but it is also likely to suggest that you may have reached your limit for the time...

    Klatch Coffee Roasters has procured 10 pounds of the exclusive Elida Natural Geisha coffee to split among its Southern California stores.

The unroasted coffee is imported from Panama and set a world record price of $803 per pound at the Best of Panama coffee competition. It’s available only from Klatch Coffee in North America. The coffee company says Geisha is a rare variety of Arabica coffee that came to Panama from a research lab in Costa Rica, with origins in Ethiopia. It’s known for its floral,...

    Are the White Walkers cloud macchiato folks? Do the Dothraki prefer green tea frappuccinos with extra whip? (Just kidding! The Dothraki are all dead.) Can Dany’s dragons even consume Pike Place caffeinated blends? Vulture is asking the very important, very relevant questions to start our morning, as this week’s Game of Thrones episode confirmed the presence of America’s favorite (minus New England) coffee chain, Starbucks, in a scene. It’s not even that hard to miss, really: If you fast-forward to 17:39 to where Dany, Jon, Tormund, and their merry band of pals are hangin’ out, a Starbucks coffee cup is...

    The study, co-authored by Maglio and published in the journal Consciousness and Cognition, looks at an effect called priming, through which exposure to even subtle cues can influence our thoughts and behavior. “People often encounter coffee-related cues, or think about coffee, without actually ingesting it,” says Maglio, an expert on consumer behavior. Arousal in psychology refers to how specific areas of the brain get activated into a state of being alert, awake and attentive. It can be triggered by a number of things, including our emotions, neurotransmitters in the brain, or the caffeinated beverages we consume. In this case, the...

    RUSH: Look at this headline: “Majority of Wild Coffee Species at Risk of Extinction, Study Finds.” This is in something called The Scientist magazine. Now, this is how climate change advocates do it. When all else is bombing out, when all else is failing, tell people that something they can’t do without, they don’t want to do without, tell people something that they habitually engage in is about to be taken away from them because of X. In this case, climate change. I’ve not shared them with you, but there have been doom-and-gloom stories about chocolate and bananas related to...

    Coffee lovers, here’s one more reason to savor that morning cup o’ joe. Research shows 60 percent of coffee species found in the wild could soon go extinct. In a new study published in the journal Science Advances on Wednesday, researchers at Kew Royal Botanic Gardens say factors putting the future of coffee at risk include climate change, deforestation, droughts, and plant diseases. According to the study, a collaboration between scientists from the UK and Ethiopia, out of 124 types of wild coffee, 75 are at risk of extinction. About 35 of the 124 species grow in areas with no...

    Drugs and syringes have become such a problem in Starbucks bathrooms that the company is installing needle-disposal boxes in certain locations Starbucks is installing boxes for safe disposal of syringes in the bathrooms of certain locations, following workers' reports of discarded needles and sometimes concerning conditions. The coffee giant is exploring remedies after employees expressed fears about being pricked by uncapped needles and experiencing related health risks. Starbucks is testing solutions, including installing sharps-disposal boxes, using heavier-duty trash bags to prevent needle pokes, and removing trash cans from certain bathrooms.

    It's no secret San Francisco is one of the most expensive places in the country to live, but $21 for a cup of coffee? It could put some over the edge. The ridiculously pricey cup of joe isn't being offered at Starbucks or an upscale coffee shop, but at a San Francisco hotel. The Hilton's Parc 55 hotel will charge $170 for a gallon of coffee during the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference this week. That works out to about $21.25 for a 16-ounce cup!

    ST LOUIS, MO—In an ecumenical council convened in St. Louis last week, the use of decaf coffee was condemned as rank heresy. The evangelical summit unanimously voted to define as heresy the "belief that decaf coffee is of any value, and good for anything other than being trampled under foot." "It is a wolf in sheep's clothing. It devours the unsuspecting. It doesn't even taste good, for crying out loud," said renowned New Testament scholar NT Wright during the summit. "I call on Christians of all stripes to forcefully reject this imposter gospel." The council rejected a motion to name...

    I have a friend who always drinks his coffee black with no sugar (and is rather pretentious about it, mind you), and whenever the server asks him if he wants milk, he makes the same joke: “I’ll take it black, like my soul.” Now, a new study published in the journal Appetite suggests there may be something to that. Researchers at the University of Innsbruck in Austria asked more than 1,000 men and women to self-report their taste preferences and answer a questionnaire that assessed their Machiavellianism, psychopathy, narcissism, everyday sadism, trait aggression, and the Big Five factors of personality....
