Why You Should Nap After Coffee

nap-coffee

Debating between a cup of joe or a short nap to make it through your Friday? Perhaps you should try both. Scientists say a “coffee nap”—having a coffee and then a 20-minute nap—will allow for maximum alertness when you wake, Vox reports. Yes, caffeine and sleep are basically polar opposites, but it takes about 20 minutes for the caffeine in coffee to go to work in your brain. There’s more to it than simply killing those 20 minutes, though. It has to do with how sleep and caffeine interact with a molecule in the brain called adenosine, which makes us feel drowsy. Essentially, a nap that ends just as the caffeine kicks in clears the brain of the molecule and has us raring to go. Read more on Newser…

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 »

landfill 070214

I have a pretty hardcore to-go coffee habit. Every time I buy coffee in a disposable paper cup (which is often), part of me cringes inside at the thought of it filling up a landfill. Obviously, this doesn’t stop me from buying it, which is part of why I’m telling you — to publicly guilt myself into bringing a reusable mug to Starbucks! The scary part is that there are thousands of people who feel the same way, and keep buying coffee anyway just like me. Fifty billion paper coffee cups end up in landfills every year, and that’s just in the U.S.!

Most paper coffee cups are made from a combination of cardboard and very thin plastic to keep the drinks warm and prevent sogginess. Unfortunately, this also deems them not recyclable because the two materials are impossible to separate — a fact many coffee drinkers don’t realize. Shouldn’t we have a more eco-friendly solution for something that’s consumed by so many people every morning? Keep reading »

The other night, I received a phone call from my bank’s fraud department alerting me that some toolbag in Michigan tried to use my debit card information to purchase $400 worth of groceries. Since my information was obviously compromised, my trusty debit card was shut down immediately. It’s going to take a week for my new card to arrive, which means that until then, I’m left with just my credit card and the spare change in my junk drawer (cash is foreign to me).

The next morning, annoyed and in need of caffeine, I tweeted about my debit card misfortune and made a joke that I was considering selling my body for coffee. Minutes later, my friend (and fellow Tweeter), Brooke, sent me a “coffee” (a $5 Starbucks card e-gift) via Tweet A Coffee. Within minutes, I had a free grande skinny vanilla latte in my hands, courtesy of my dear friend and this genius Twitter exchange. Keep reading »
