What is your favorite thing about the coffee industry?
Learning a new trade & meeting new people.

Something interesting to probably no one but me.

This was taken from one of my favorite design sites, :

"...a new study by researchers [tested] to see if there was any connection between physical and emotional heat.
To their surprise, they found that people who held a cup of hot coffee for 10 to 25 seconds warmed to a perfect stranger. Holding a cup of iced coffee had the opposite effect."

Maybe this is why coffee shops have that laid back, just like home, sort of feel to them. I guess next time you're feeling stressed out. Take the time to hug a warm cup of coffee or tea with your hands, it'll calm you down some.

Yeah, I sent it in yesterday -- go absentee! Cost me sixteen bucks to overnight it, too; Barack had better appreciate it.
