No regular coffee drinker can sit by and watch the bean grinders grind to a halt. The ink of life is apparently being threatened by a generation that doesn't understand why a cup of joe is better than joe...to the extreme.
Time reports that a new study shows only 27 percent of the age group between 18 and 24 years old drink coffee daily. Put down those energy drinks, whippersnappers, because coffee school is officially in session.
Burger King is giving out free cups of coffee on Friday mornings in November. The promotion starts tomorrow and is valid during standard breakfast hours (until 10:30 a.m. at most locations).
It's the second biggest news for Burger King locally, as Fat City's Charles Ferruzza broke the story last week that its upscale Whopper Bar concept would be replacing Chefburger in the Power & Light District.
The Roasterie Cafe (4511 W. 119th St.) opened at the One Nineteen Center in Leawood this morning. This is the second cafe for the local roaster.
It will feature coffee drinks, pastries and coffee floats made with new homemade ice cream flavors like Super Tuscan Espresso, which will be available today.
How many people does it take to design a better paper cup? For Starbucks, the answer is likely thousands. Fast Company has the extended saga of the coffee giant's quest to design and feature a completely recyclable cup.
To that end, Starbucks has held a series of Cup Summits, inviting coffee competitors and searching for answers to the waste created by disposable cups. The last of these was on (the PR-friendly) Earth Day in April, with 2012 the stated goal for 100% recyclable cups.
It's hard to believe that two of Kansas City's beverage titans have yet to collaborate on a drink. Kansas Citians have had to settle for a Tank 7 with dinner and a cup of joe with dessert. But a move to end that separation of meal and dessert is afoot. And like many consumer wish lists, it is beginning with a single post.
Show-Me Beer addressed Boulevard founder John McDonald directly yesterday, in response to an article in the Star's Sunday magazine about local collaborations. McDonald suggested that the coffee-stout market is oversaturated.
To whet your appetite for The Pitch's annual Best of Kansas City issue in October, we're counting down our favorite Top 50 dishes each weekday until October 7.
So there you are, waiting for the light to change while the Honda's AC blows a one-person cold front over you. The plan is to stall that first sip until you're on the highway, but it's a long light, and the 20-ounce cup gleams with sweat. You relent. Up through the straw comes cold comfort: chocolate, espresso, milk, ice. The light changes. You release the straw. A perfect dewdrop of your Hi Hat E-Crush hangs in the air long enough for you to see it, to know where it will land -- on your shirt, just below the collar, a telltale brown smudge to taunt the bottom of your peripheral vision the rest of the day. You punch the accelerator as your anger flares, looking for a target. The poorly engineered straw! Your own eagerness! Gravity! The staining drink!
But to paraphrase Homer Simpson: "Oh, E-Crush, I can't stay mad at you."
Although I'm disappointed that Starbucks has decided its Via instant iced coffee needs to be lightly sweetened, the coffee giant's rollout of free Wi-Fi through a partnership with AT&T has turned its locations into a viable mobile office for me.
There is no sign-up. The connectivity speed is quick. And within five minutes of grabbing an iced coffee or tea, I'm on the Internet.
It's great that iced coffee is now widely available. I'm glad to see that restaurants and fast-food chains have discovered that a cup filled with ice and a little bit of coffee can be a tremendous profit generator.
But iced coffee is now the biggest tease since watching Sonic commercials from my apartment in Brooklyn. This...delicious...limeade...is only 300 miles away! I can get an iced coffee in every part of the country, but whether it's going to have sugar -- that's another question entirely.
Mall Santa requires a suspension of disbelief. Everyone has to agree that his workshop in the North Pole has been briefly relocated to a spot just a few feet from the food court.
Mall coffee shops require the same leap of faith. You have to believe that the wood paneling and mellow lighting are what allow Gloria Jean's Coffees to transcend the Independence Center Mall.
Kansans pay for nothing, get all the advantages of a large metro area, then steal…

Love it and the idea, but who the Heck wrote the article? Particularly this line,…
Reading all these comments (this site and so many others) I question who/what exactly this…
No hateful homophobic comments yet? You are disappointing me, bigots.
