Coffee Week

Ah, coffee.  The magical beverage that makes us all feel more human by 9 AM. What would we do without it? Grab your mug and settle in for a very buzz-worthy Social Club.  

Matt Gebis of Espresso a Mano in Lawrenceville joins Rachel and Josh to share his journey into owning his own business, explains why he doesn’t sweat Starbucks as competition, and instructs us on how to brew the most delicious hot (and cold!) cup of coffee at home.

Also happening this weekend:

All this week, NPR's Morning Edition will be telling the stories behind your morning cup of coffee. If you're anything like us, you take pride in your coffee cup. Show your mugs via Twitter and/or Instagram with #PghCoffee.

If Pittsburgh stopped serving coffee tomorrow, bean aficionados in Brooklyn or Seattle might not gnash their teeth or tear their hair at the loss, but the loyal patrons of this city’s coffeehouses would mount a full-on revolt.
