Wednesday, April 18, 2012

WNYC

Feeling adventurous, I ordered a fancy-pants coffee at Starbucks. A "lite" caramel macchiato, tall, extra foam. I could taste the artificial sweeteners in the sugar-free, vanilla syrup, but otherwise, it was pretty tasty.

A Break from the Ubiquitousness of the Coffee Shop: The Tea Salon

Tuesday, July 05, 2011

WNYC

Since giving up decaf coffee 16 days ago, I've found it tough to enjoy coffee shops. The delicious smell of the roasted coffee is a distraction. And it's hard not to feel deprived when looking at a menu board full of coffee options (cappuccino, espresso, americano, red eye, latte), but little to say about tea except "black" and "herbal."

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

WNYC

Amy Eddings' Food for Thought: Discovering Yerba Mate

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

I love coffee. Not for the caffeine -- I've been drinking decaf for several years now -- but because I like the strong taste and the creaminess of coffee with frothy, warmed milk. So, it's been a big drag to have to give it up for my 21-day detox. I've switched, for the time being, to tea.

Monday, June 20, 2011

WDET Detroit Public Radio

Motor City Blight Busters, a Detroit-based non-profit around for over 20 years, opened a community coffee house on the northwest side of the city last February. Proprietor Alicia Marion said that she approached the organization about a decade ago with the suggestion to turn an empty storefront near the Redford Theatre into a coffee shop.

“No matter where I went, whether it was locally, Royal Oak or Ferndale or New York or New Orleans and New Jersey, there’s always a neighborhood diner or coffee shop,” Marion said. “I wanted to bring that back here to Lasher and Grand River.”

Amy Eddings' Food for Thought: Cooling My Heels for a Hot Beverage

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

When it comes to my afternoon decaf soy cappuccino habit, I'm a creature of habit. I go to the Starbucks on Spring Street that is one block down the street from WNYC's studios on Varick Street. But it closed several days ago for renovations, and now I'm forced to go to the one that is on Hudson Street.
