Coffee: The Brew Of Champions, by Rachel Christiansen – knprnews
Vegas is waking up to the third-wave-coffee movement, which highlights coffee as a craft beverage on the same level of craft beer and wine.

The Coffee Campaign: A conversation with The Boston Globe’s Matt Viser, Dylan Byers – Politico-On Media
I’m a BIG fan of Matt Viser and his Boston Globe coffee blog, Double Shot. Politico’s Dylan Byers recently
interviewed Matt via g-chat, to find out his favorite coffee these days and how he came to love the brew of the political gods.
Here’s a sample of a great interview…
Dylan Byers: If you could talk coffee with any politician or politico, who would it be?
Matt Viser: That’s tough. Maybe a joint discussion with the Clintons? Because they’ve both expressed significant interest in coffee. Bill has traveled to Haiti with Todd Carmichael, the founder of La Colombe Coffee. And I’m told that Hillary, as first lady, would regularly have a cappuccino in the afternoons (shortly after the White House kitchen got an espresso machine), and that she stepped up the coffee game a bit when she was at the State Department.
