CF39 – Java Cafe – Coffee Closure for the Catholic Foodie… for now!

CF39 – Java Cafe – Coffee Closure for the Catholic Foodie… for now!

Today we finish up our discussion of COFFEE! We have feedback, a bit of coffee history, and a surprise package from a listener and good friend, Shelly Kelly. Shelly and her sister Lisa are the blogging sisters over at Of Sound Mind and Spirit. If you have never seen their blog before, you might just want to pay them a visit. And what’s inside the package? Well, you’ll just have to listen to find out!

Did you know that coffee started out as a Muslim drink? And at first Christian Europe was not too open to the Muslim’s “Devil’s drink.” But a certain pope tried it, and… he like it! Suddenly coffee took over Christian society in the West. Which pope? Well, you’ll have to listen to find out! Yes, again. I am “encouraging” you to listen to the show. Go ahead. You’ll enjoy it!

A few links from the show…

I also share with you a bit of my own philosophical thought on coffee and coffee houses. And, believe it or not, I am actually able to work in oysters and Yogi Berra. Unbelievable!

All this and more is on the menu at the Catholic Foodie, where food meets faith!
