If you love coffee, waffles, and bacon, why not infuse those flavors deep into your gums? Not only will you get the satisfaction of a delicious breakfast aftertaste, but also great oral hygiene! Each package contains the three flavors and each dispenses 12 yards of waxed dental floss. $5.95 at Archie McPhee.
Starbucks is looking to expand once again, only this time in a bold new direction. The company is testing a new concept to lure evening customers. Starting next week, the new store, 15th Ave. Coffee and Tea inspired by Starbucks, will be launched in Seattle and will be offering customers not only coffee and tea, but also wine and beer. Two other locations in Seattle have already been planned to outfit the new store, and if all goes well, expansion to other cities.
It looks like its current strategy in battling …

Without a doubt, former Starbucks patrons unwilling to pay for a premium coffee product, have found refuge at McDonald’s and Dunkin Donuts. While it’s not the same product, it’s good enough to satisfy their coffee cravings.
So instead of saying ” I would like an Orange Mocha …
Upon hearing about bulgogi hot dogs from a friend some months ago, I was skeptical of a modern mish-mash between East and West. I am familiar with the concept of fusion, but this just sounded ridiculous.
In one corner, a Western classic that’s as American as baseball. In the other corner, a traditional Korean dish that is passed down from generation to generation. How did the idea of intertwining the two items come about? Was it from a stroke of genius, or a thought from half-baked randomness?

A UK study at Durham University conducted on 200 students claims that those who have high levels of caffeine intake are more prone to having hallucinations.

Students who consumed 7 cups of instant coffee or more per day, were three times more suceptible to having hallucinations, compared to those who cosumed only one cup of coffee per day.

I went to the Saturday session of the Coffee and Tea Festival in New York City. The amount of tea vendors outnumbered the amount of coffee vendors. In fact, I didn’t feel much of a coffee presence, aside from the faint smell of espresso in this one area of the floor.
