Coffee Facts Friday

Kathy, Karen and Nancy meet early Saturday morning at their favorite coffeehouse to savor espressos and life stories.  Sipping coffee and laughing at Karen’s recent high school reunion stories they ponder if they are more than just good friends who like real good coffee and good stories or are they a coffee clutch.  Nancy wonders, “So, where did the term coffee clutch come from?”  A Google search illuminates more than anyone needs or wishes that early on a Saturday morning.  Huddling over Kathy’s computer, the three order a second cup and read that coffee clutch is derived from the German Kaffeeklatsch, which translates to coffee chat or as one source disclosed klatch actually means gossip.  Although Karen, Kathy and Nancy proudly proclaim themselves coffee snobs because they are, after all, women of high coffee standards; nevertheless, they dismiss the author who snipped “People who say coffee clutch are simply wrong, unless they are referring to a coffee-cup sleeve.”
So, roll up your sleeves, and have another good cup of coffee.

    Great site! I have been a coffee snob for a very long time.
    After spending two weeks (1985) in Colombia with a volunteer eye glass project we came home with systems full of the most wonderful
    coffee in the world.
    Currently I have do only espresso while out but there is a coffee company in Los Gatos, CA does great brewed coffee. Haven’t found any since except for a couple of individuals ( Fred Marshall founder of the Uptown Cafe and Sylvia Wilgen Security Bank..Bemidji) that have made the grade.
