To Gluten or not to Gluten

Gluten is a word that many people have heard and probably used without really knowing what it is or what it does. It’s on countless products these days accompanied with other words like “free” or “contains.” People, without really knowing why or if they actually should, are avoiding it like it’s the new plague. There are a group of people who definitely have to be wary of their gluten intake; they have an autoimmune disorder known as celiac which makes the body reject gluten with various degrees of vigor; this can result in mild discomfort to severe illness. It can be [...]

Successful Restaurateurs Who Aren’t a Chain As Of Yet

Chain-Chain-Chain…Chain of Fools! You’ve done it! You’ve opened a successful restaurant or café and survived into profit-making time. Congratulations! Next Steps? Now, your next step is likely to involve optimizing this success, the success of your brand and products, as much as possible.

Coffee Drinking Habits You’ve (Probably) Never Heard Of

When I worked in a Starbucks-style coffee shop, I saw people, day in and day out, put the same things in their coffee. Milk—dairy or non-dairy—sweetener—sugar or Splenda; or I saw them put nothing in and boldly drink it black. (This made me shudder then, but these days I prefer black coffee myself, mostly to avoid dairy and sugar). It was always a pleasant, if weird, surprise when someone put something else in their coffee. There was the guy who always used three small packages of honey for his…weird, but not outlandish. One day, however, I got asked: “Do [...]

What Teas Are Good For Your Health?

I am a huge coffee drinker. I have worked in coffee shops, I have participated in latte art competitions, I have been to coffee conventions, and I have tried to quit coffee 5 or 6 times (I hate being dependent on anything) and I always come back. That being said, let me tell you about the benefits of coffee’s not-as-popular-in-America cousin, tea. Wait! Before you click away. I know, flower petal infused water will never be the same as a strong, earthy, kick-in-the-pants espresso shot, in either flavor or stimulating effect. That’s okay because those are not the reason I [...]

Stocking With Care – When Less Really Can Be More

One of the most frustrating things as a customer is going to a new store and encountering an employee who doesn’t know if they carry what you’re looking for and doesn’t seem to know much about their stock in general. Equally frustrating is going into a store you’ve patronized before and finding that that product you loved is either no longer carried or unrecognizable to the employee based on your vague description. As an employee, trust me, these types of situations are just as frustrating. It’s embarrassing to not know what’s in the store or not and to have new [...]
