Ultimate Coffee Shop

This story on NPR's Morning Edition illustrates the valuable role coffee shops can play in community cohesion. When the town of Ellsworth lost its last coffee shop, community members created The Front Porch Cafe. This is a real ministry, contributing in a conscious way to a positive sense of place in a community that is facing difficult economic times.

I have added a link to my page on the Geography of Coffee Shops, and hope to visit the next time I am in the Midwest.
