NOTE ON NAMING: You will note that other than the public blog – all blogs have a connection to coffee.   We think of them as digital “Coffee Houses.” Throughout history, coffee houses have been places where big ideas are sparked. 

At the London Coffee house in England Ben Franklin and other renaissance thinkers gathered to create the Royal Society of Arts. 

At the Green Dragon Coffee House in Boston Patriots gathered to plan the Boston Tea Party. 

Coffee houses have been symbolized freedom without fear and have provided inspiration for artistic expression.  Over the past millennium, the coffee house has become a regular meeting place for people to find common grounds by engaging in delightful, often energetic, conversations.
