When you see celebrities and the “rich and famous,” you might think that you don’t have anything in common with them. You would actually be wrong. The one thing you have in common is your love for coffee!
Jerry Seinfeld said “I think the answer is we all need a little help, and the coffee's a little help with everything — social, energy, don't know what to do next, don't know how to start my day, don't know how to get through this afternoon, don't know how to stay alert. We want to do a lot of stuff. We’re not in great shape. We didn’t get a good night’s sleep. We’re a little depressed. Coffee solves all these problems in one delightful little cup.”
Whether you’re on a farm in middle America, or in a high rise in New York, everyone loves starting their day with a fresh cup of joe. Now, there might be a difference in how you actually make your coffee. When you think of a good coffee maker, you don’t think of it being made of chrome or luxurious metals.

Then they’re dispensed in first-in-first-out order into their brewer or their retail bags. You can find this piece of art in New York!
