Coffee Fact Friday: Father’s Day Coffee

Short, Tall. Skinny, Grande.  American, Italian. Those words (plus a few more)  define both coffee and fathers.

Coffee and fathers have a long history together, one that goes back farther than suburban commutes and to-go cups; farther than stagecoaches and saloons, farther than…well, dear-ole-dads have pretty much been downing their morning joe since that Ethiopian goat juiced-up on coffee berries danced with the stork.

Let’s face it. Dad’s need their coffee to face the day.

To celebrate Father’s Day, coffee shops around the country are featuring special events for their loyal customers and our beloved role models, such as the Father and Son Poker Tournament at the Buzz Cafe in Oak Park, Illinois. But if that’s not in your neighborhood, no worries. Just check your local happenings – Bostonians, scan the Globe’s website for the Father’s Day coffee break on, ah, Friday.

By the time Father’ Day rolls around on Sunday the church basements will be brimming with after mass coffee and donuts.  The question is, will it be filled with coffeesnob dads? It seems after service communing around the urns is dwindling. To combat the devilishly tempting gourmet fare to which they are loosing their parishioners, Holy Spirit Church in Zagreb, Croatia has opened the Prayer Cafe. You can buy a cup of coffee for only three Our Fathers. No word on what the price is if your religious denomination isn’t Catholic.

Any way you pour it, anyway you pray it, we say: Happy Father’s Day
