Presidential Coffee & Tea Facts

Presidential Coffee & Tea Facts

Presidents have a hard job; one of the hardest, as they have to make some of the hardest decisions with the eyes of the whole nation on them. It is no wonder that almost every president had a love for coffee. In honor of President’s Day, have some fun facts about Presidents and our favorite Beverage!


George Washington

Washington’s Wooden Teeth were stained because of the Red Wine and Coffee he drank!


Theodore Roosevelt

Roosevelt helped Maxwell House come up with the slogan “good to the last drop,” the exact sentence he said when drinking coffee in the home of Andrew Jackson in Nashville, Tennessee.


Ulysses S. Grant

For breakfast, Grant would often pair a super strong cup of coffee with Spanish mackerel, steak, bacon fried apples and flannel cake.


George W. Bush

Bush would wake up at 5:30 a.m. and get coffee for him and his wife. They would drink it while reading the morning papers. However, he apparently got used to having staff assistance. Laura Bush said that he woke up the day after they left the White House and started to make their morning cup. “He had forgotten how,” she told Oprah Winfrey.


Herbert Hoover

Hoover, unfortunately, had his presidency during the Great Depression.  In an attempt to get the United States out of the Great Depression he made big PR pushes telling people to start buying again.  This led to a widespread depression era song with the rhyming lyrics: “Mr. Herbert Hoover says that now’s the time to buy.  So, let’s have another cup of coffee, And let’s have another piece of pie!”


John F Kennedy

During Kennedy’s 1952 Senate campaign he staged coffee hours in homes of prominent women all across Massachusetts to better target women voters.  This ended up being quite the success, and was referred to as “Coffee with the Kennedy’s.”


Ronald Reagan

Reagan was known as “The Great Communicator,” but he was not “The Great Caffeinator.”  He would start his days with coffee like most other people.  However, he began his day's decaf coffee, for some odd reason.


Zachary Taylor

Although labeled a conspiracy theory, it is said to be on proper authority by multiple people that Taylor’s sudden death from severe stomach flu (cholera morbus) was actually due to a purposeful poisoning of the brown sugar that went into his coffee.  It is said that many in the southern slave states did not take kindly to his ways, and would instead take their chances with Millard Fillmore.


John Adams

He was once quoted as saying “Doctor, I can do anything you think proper, except give up coffee and tobacco.”


These men had a tough job, and no one can blame them for having to need some help during the day. Maybe if they had some vitamins in their coffee it would have been an easier job!

Famous Coffee Romance Moments

Famous Coffee Romance Moments

Most everyone has been on a coffee date because let's admit it, coffee is excellent, and it brings people together. As an aphrodisiac, coffee excites not just the body, but also the mind. It is no wonder that some of our favorite romantic movies have some iconic coffee moments in them.

Here are some of our favorite moments:


Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961)

No one can forget the iconic moment of Holly Golightly's introduction with Coffee and Pastry in hand. It's our first introduction to the character and we can’t help but fall in love with her as she pulls coffee out a paper bag while dressed in her Sunday Best.

 

Gilmore Girls (2000-2007)

Anyone who is a fan a Gilmore Girls knows that ‘Luke’s Diner’ is a fixture in the show from the pilot episode. Lots of heartbreaking confessions and new relationships have been formed while coffee was poured in those charming mismatched cups.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)

The awkward first meeting to top all awkward first meetings. Yet, it is magic. Ian clearly appreciates her humor and interest sparks in his eyes. All of this happens in the blink of an eye as Toula stands there, holding a pot of coffee.

 

You’ve Got Mail (1998)

Kathleen Kelly and Joe Fox certainly got off on the wrong foot. After a rocky conversation over coffee that left both confused and despondent. Kathleen confides in Joe, over a cup of joe, about her online mystery man…..who just happens to be Joe.

 

The Coffee Shop (2014)

Let’s not forget this cliche, but classic, love story about a desperate woman who is trying her best to save her dying coffee shop. She must take a chance with life and love as she fights to save her business.

Friends (1995)

Central Perk was, perhaps one of the most iconic coffee shops to ever appear on the big or small screen. No coffee fueled romance was quite as special as the romance between Ross and Rachel. When Ross finally worked up the nerve, the two sealed a caffeinated kiss that will forever remain in our hearts!
