Coffee culture has permeated the United States within the last couple of years, especially the North West. Walking into a coffee shop is a whole social experience, and is coined the third place. Whether you are catching up with old friends, meeting new ones, having a family reunion, or people watching, coffee shops are a more relaxing environment. This culture is completely surrounded by coffee itself and even has its own lingo.
Even though coffee culture has gotten really big in the last couple of years, it started back in the 1960’s. Although people might associate coffee culture with the North West, it originated in New York City’s Greenwich Village. It started growing in the North West twenty years later, in the 80’s. There are big well known coffee house chains and small local coffee shops. They all provide a unique and easy environment surrounding everyone’s favorite drink, coffee. If you drink your coffee at home, they have major brands that solidified the morning ritual. Along came instant coffee in the 20th century. That was a game changer.
Coffee in its most longstanding basic form has been enjoyed by people for a very long time. Drip coffee is simple, earthy, and easy to prepare. You can buy coffee beans from a variety of countries around the world too. From there, came espresso, Americano, french press, lattes, and many more. The newest kid to the block is the Frappuccino, offered in so many variety of flavors and coffee strength. A very popularized coffee shop called Starbucks created the Frappuccino bringing in a whole new crowd of coffee enthusiasts. A newer supplier of coffee products is a company called Organo Gold, and they are growing like wildfire. The special ingredient featured in their coffee and tea products is called Ganoderma Lucidum. It is a mushroom that has a plethora of health benefits. You won’t see Organo Gold’s products in coffee shops or grocery stores. All of their products are sold by independent distributors, giving people a chance to create financial freedom in their lives.
