Newsweek called in for an interview, they along with the WSJ have made this a National News story… meanwhile, the Gaza strip is an ongoing hot mess, to say the very least.  But alas, the quality of our local community is an important topic, and so is the support of small business.

Most of the local coffee shops, including the West, understand that what we offer and what the corporate giant packages are two different products.  Yet, we must admit that Starbucks made coffee a national ‘thing’ on a more refined level, and where local shops come into play is to continue that refining practice that SB struggles with because of their cantankerous size.
