As a product of the 90’s, I live for the kind of coffee shop where people come together to discuss books, art, and music. The perfect coffee shop is the intersection of a cozy home feeling and cool place to gather. What sets one coffee shop apart from another is not only the grinds, but the environment and the music. In 1959, my grandparents opened a tavern called North End Depot, and it remained the family business for 40 years. Before I started college, my grandmother shared these words of wisdom, “learn to drink coffee”. I started drinking coffee every morning while listening to my favorite music. To this day, choosing a vinyl record of my collection of over 2,000 records is how I start my morning. Music and coffee simply make the world a better place. When I combine the two , it’s magical- the best way to start my day.
