Coffeehouses transformed how travelers experience their trip.

Bathrooms are just one of the benefits of coffeehouses becoming popular with the growth of Starbucks in the 90’s.

This is especially true in New York City, where you could spend hours in the 80’s searching for a bathroom. I vividly remember doing the pee-pee dance at the New York Public Library waiting on a HUGE line for the public bathroom because it took so long to fine one we could use and they were so scarce back then.

This podcast is about how travelers can leverage the use of coffeehouses to enhance their travel experience.

Benefits of Coffeehouses for Travelers (there are more than this, but here are a few):

  • Bathrooms
  • Temperature relief from outdoor heat or cold
  • Place to wait for train or bus or traffic to pass
  • Place to relax after/during stressful travel
  • Caffeine
  • Wi-Fi
  • Meet friends
  • Research route, hotels, restaurants
  • Get local advice from Baristas and other patrons

SOME COOL COFFEEHOUSES IN THE CITIES I HAVE LIVED IN:

Los Angeles: Aroma Cafe in Studio City
New York City: Too many… OMG go on YELP
New Jersey – Cool Beans in Oradell
New Jersey- Fine Grind in LittleFalls
Chicago: Eva’s Cafe in Old Town, near the Sedgwick stop which is the El Brown Line you use to get to Second City

My favorite chains are:
Caribou Coffee
Paneras
Corner Bakery

My favorite coffee kiosk is Dutch Brothers, but it can only be found in the Western US and Rockies. Here is the link to the locations.

I mentioned Aeropress again (here’s a link to the first time I mentioned it). Totally recommend!
Aerobie AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker
