Topic: coffee on the prairie? (3 msgs / 81 lines)
1) From: Sandy Andina
Here I am in Coffeyville, KS, where my singing partner and I are  
performing for a community humanities outreach project. Except for  
what I brought with me (Aussie Mt Top and Sumatra Lintong and my  
grinder and Aeropress), the best coffee in town is at (wince!) Mickey  
D's and the local Daily Donuts shop.  For espresso, we headed 5 miles  
NW to nearby Dearing, KS and King's Coffee. Darn good cappuccino--got  
to ask them tomorrow (when I return for the insanely wonderful  
meringue pies) who's their supplier.  They have a 2-group LaCimbali  
semiauto, and a sign of how much they care was that the machine was  
down for about 15 minutes while they changed gaskets.  Talked shop  
with the baristas, too.  They were intrigued by my description of the  
LaCora--one is looking for a new home machine.
Next closest espresso is 24 mi. SW in Nowata, OK!

3) From: Sandy Andina
King's was an enigma to me even back in 2003 when the Coffeyville area  
had not yet been devastated by floods or the recession (just by its  
kids leaving town in droves as soon as they grew up). I couldn't  
understand how everything else was either fast-food cookie cutter or  
just plain ramshackle and deserted, yet it soldiered on bright and  
shiny and packed, with coffeehouse and bakery fare that'd be right at  
home in Chicago or Park Slope (albeit with a heavily religious  
underlying theme--but I don't mind putting up with a little soft-sell  
evangelism for heavenly food and coffee). The antique-shop owner  
across the road explained that the owner is a retired millionaire who  
is both a committed Christian and passionate about coffee.  The place  
operates at a loss, but he runs it as a labor of love and considers it  
his moral duty to pay his employees a living wage.  Would that more  
people could afford to do that so that others may earn a living.
