Life Dream Status: NYC To Recreate Iconic “Friends” Coffee Shop ‘Central Perk’

As a huuuge and borderline-obsessed “Friends” fan (she says, sipping from an oversized Central Perk mug), I would have given my left ovary to hang out with Joey, Monica, Chandler, Ross, Phoebe and Rachel at their favorite coffee shop. And come September, I can have the next best thing. Warner Bros. Television Group, Warner Bros. Consumer Products, and Eight O’Clock Coffee are teaming up to recreate Central Perk at a pop-up location in Manhattan, 20 years after the pilot episode aired. Oh, but there’s more… Keep reading »

Watch This: A Spot-On Rundown Of The Regulars At Every Hipster Coffee Shop

Hipster Coffee Shop Parody
"I'm writing a novel."

This parody of all the most obnoxious customers who frequent hipster coffee shops might seem a little out there (an aged Sumatra roast is served in a desk fountain, and Michael Caine shows up at one point), but for anyone who’s ever worked at a coffee shop, you know the caricatures are painfully accurate. I must say, though, that I totally relate to the guy who brings in his entire desktop computer and then spends the whole day sheepishly requesting an outlet and free refills. As someone who spends quite a few work days at coffee shops, I feel you, bro. [YouTube]

Later this month, a group of students in New York City are pioneering a new program called “Good To Go” which would reuse coffee cups around the city. The Brooklyn Roasting Company in DUMBO, a neighborhood in Brooklyn, will begin the program on April 15, when caffeine addicts can drink from a light, reusable cup and then bring it back some other time. The cups will be sanitized before they’re reused on other customers. There is also a possibility of creating perks for coffee drinkers who reuse cups, like waiting in shorter lines similar to a “carpool lane.”  Keep reading »

Hanging out in a coffee shop is always a double-edged sword. On the upside, you get to eavesdrop on the conversations of other patrons. On the downside, you get to eavesdrop on the conversations of other patrons. When the people sitting next to you are engaged in an entertaining interaction like, say, a first date, it’s basically free admission to a live, awkward rom com. But if the people are discussing something boring or annoying, for example, the pros and cons of lining your fireplace with Moravian tiles, well, it’s excruciating. Below, the 10 most annoying conversations that I’ve overheard at the coffee shop…within the past hour.

This App Delivers Coffee Shop Sounds To Your Computer

http://www.thefrisky.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=3266486&action=edit

Love working in coffee shops but spend all day in an office? There’s an app for that. Coffitivity, possibly the most brilliantly simple invention of all time, brings ambient coffee shop sounds to your laptop to help you concentrate. It also saves you the roughly $8 you would spend on a delicious frappa-blended-mumbo-jumbo-venti drink and croissant if you were there in person. Coffitivity has recordings of famous coffee shops in several cities, so you can hear the exact sounds of your favorite haunt. So clever. The app is offered for smartphones, iPads and Mac computers, and offers the option to submit your own audio from your local cafe. I can’t believe nobody thought of this years ago!

Dear Anonymous Starbucks Baristas,

I never thought that making Starbucks beverages was that complicated. Starbucks is basically fast food.  And I say this as someone who drinks at least one Starbucks beverage every single day of my life.

But apparently there is a lot that baristas think the unwashed masses don’t understand about frothing milk, so: okayThis Valentine’s Day, I don’t have a heterosexual male to buy a Hallmark card and wear uncomfortable lingerie for. So my love letter is to you, Starbucks baristas. Specifically, the baristas who don’t screw up my order Keep reading »
