Attention Bible Thumpers

"We're trying to turn a negative into a positive," explained the happy young woman who took my drink order. I asked her if someone loved rabbits or was the cafe's name a Bible reference. Apparently, one coffee shop in Deep East Texas is willing to poke fun with residents of the Bible Belt.

Thumpers Coffee and Gift Shop recently opened in the town of Nacogdoches, Texas. The spiritual hub has a few customers in the morning but it's at night that it fully comes to life. As soon as classes end at the nearby campus of SFA-Stephen F. Austin University-students converge on the storefront shop to drink coffee and study.

Biblical sayings are painted on canvases throughout the property and a huge, ornate mural is displayed on the ceiling. The cork/message board displays bible studies, resources and places to worship and pray. In fact, a prayer box is hung next to it for specific prayer requests.

The customers were nicely dressed and polite. It's peaceful environment is li…

A Bad Coffee Day

On a drive to work, I entered a drive-through coffee premises, turned a corner and pulled up next to a speaker box.

'Welcome to -------?' said a voice.

'A small cup of coffee please, and could you fill it up?'

'Okay, drive up to the window.'

'Okay, drive up to the window,' is a command used by fast food stores to control the masses of customers they strip every day of their money in exchange for (sometimes) watered-down coffee and tons of sugar-impregnated, fat-loaded donuts.

When the car in front left, I drove up to the cashier. The window retracted, and two fingers and a thumb snatched my credit card. Half a minute or so later my card was returned, followed by my small cup of coffee, which I rested in the first coffee holder behind the gear lever.

I could have driven away from the store premises and made the right turn which joins the road that led to my medical practice, but instead, since I was feeling unsure, I parked in a strip of space facing the main …

Coffee's Beginner

Many people can be defined by their habits, such as drinking coffee. Many coffee drinkers enjoy the taste, and some enjoy the nice boost the caffeinated drink gives them in the morning. People can tell you approximately what age they started to drink coffee and why. People tend to answer "Oh! Coffee? I started drinking that in college! Studying and homework at the last minute. Thank you coffee and Google!"

Me? My first sip of the flavor was about in third grade. I know what you're thinking, third grade? That's such a young age to even think of drinking coffee. Don't worry, my mom liked to trick me into thinking I was older than I actually was. She'd fill the cup up with milk and a little of a vanilla flavored cream. She'd top the drink off with a splash of coffee for the color. Gullible me, there I was drinking a cup of coffee with the grown ups at the age of eight!

I'm absolutely convinced I was made to love coffee though. My mom would tell me storie…

Coffee Culture in India

India is the sixth largest coffee producer in the world but Indians, on the whole, were not major coffee drinkers. Apart from the south where filter kaapi reigned supreme, tea has dominated the psyche of the average Indian. Things are changing rapidly though as the twin forces of globalisation and Internet have made coffee the cool new drink. More and more Indians are turning coffee to fuel their workday as cafes, both international and domestic, are sprouting across all cities and towns. These fast expanding cafes are the prime spot for people to catch up or spend a few hours either working, reading or just whiling away the time. Equipped with free wifi and air-conditioning, these cafes are also fast becoming the venue of choice for informal work meetings. Where until only 20 years ago, cappuccino, latte and double shots would have been alien words, today's Indian not only knows the difference between them but can also discern between a medium, dark or light roast and are on the …
