It’s just one of the things that held the Soprano family together over the years. Kind of a reoccurring character that never made the credits, popping up every now and then when David Chase needed to add something warm, fuzzy and Italian to the script.

Whether it was at Satriale’s Pork Store or Carmela’s kitchen, the New Jersey bad-boys drank a heck of a lot of espresso over the years. How many times...Read More & Post Comments

The Role of Coffee in the Civil War

The Role of Coffee in the Civil War
Who would have thought that coffee, of all things, would have played such an important role in the American Civil War? According to Garry Fisher, historian and author of Rebel Cornbread and Yankee Coffee, that little caffeinated bean we love so much was a true morale booster for both Federal and Confederate soldiers.

“Drinking a hot cup of coffee around the campfire was probably the best part of the day for most soldiers in the field,” said Fisher during an interview from his home in Winston-Salem. “It helped take the monotony out of the day to day march.

The Big Island: A Coffee Vacation Destination

By Nicole Jones - The Big Island: A Coffee Vacation Destination

If you’ve ever wanted to visit a coffee plantation, you’d better plan ahead. According to Kona Council Vice President Bob Foerster, things are getting pretty busy on the Big Island. The Kona District gets about 1,000 tourists a year specifically looking to tour coffee plantations, he said. “Sometimes the people who visit don’t even like coffee, they just want to see how it all happens.”

Kona is considered a premium coffee, grown only on the island of Hawaii and known around the world for its nutty fragrance and mellow flavor. For the most part, Kona is cultivated on the slopes of Mount Hualalai and Mauna Lao.

Foerster, who owns Dragon’s Lair Estates on Mauna Lao, said he gets a lot of calls for tours. “While our plantation isn’t as big as others on the island, we give an extremely in-depth tour.”

Dragon’s Lair Estates is a five-acre, organically certified farm, located 1,000 feet above sea level. It has about 2,200 coffee trees, according to Foerster, and grows macadamia nuts, avocados and tropical fruits – including... Read More
