Coffee News

Coffee and…

Coffee has been in the news a lot lately; don’t let that scare you in the slightest. Coffee is FULL of numerous health benefits. It is often said that coffee drinkers, actually have more health benefits than non coffee drinkers. Coffee is rich in antioxidants, which helps battle cancers. It is also loaded with anti-inflammatory compounds which helps reduce the symptoms of many chronic diseases. Move over apples, a cup of coffee a day, could really keep the doctor away.

Last month we talked about how exciting Oat Milk is… this week, here is how exciting Oat Milk got!
“For the last couple of months we’ve been in a pretty severe national shortage. Here’s a piece that’s been circulating about it: demand growth we experienced over a short period of time was, quite frankly, to a degree we all thought was impossible. We’ve been doing this for a very long time and can (and are) scaling operations very quickly, so this is a short term issue. But we absolutely got caught and feel terrible about it. We have a new production facility opening this month that will alleviate all these issues.” 

–A few words from our vendor friends at Oatly.Crazy right? Bear with us as we too go through some Oatly shortages, but don’t worry. It will be back in no time!

Farley’s SF Window Boxes: James Gu

The series is loosely a coming-of-age story. It’s about mundane everyday life and that looming uncertainty of not knowing what lies in the future. It’s about making a friend and having to say goodbye. It’s about sometimes eating alone and that hilariously frustrating family dinner with relatives you can’t even understand. It’s also about how at the end of the day, it’ll be okay.

With these pieces I wanted to blur the line between childish and mature. The series is somewhat autobiographical and serves as a journal of sorts. I’ve always been attracted to slice-of-life type stories. I remember reading The Catcher in the Rye as a teenager, and the protagonist, Holden Caulfield, would always mention any time he’d smoke a few cigarettes. I’m still not sure why, but this trivial detail made the story for me.

James is a local artist living and working in the Bay Area.
