This is the first post in my new series about coffee houses in the Philadelphia area. Coffee is an everyday comfort. Coffee houses are as much a part of a community's culture as any bar or corner store. They get us going in the morning. They are essential for meetings, minglings, and the fabric of a neighborhood.
