About Coffee Nation

Coffee Nation is where we gather to give tribute to the liquid fruit of the wonderful bean. Join Coffee Nation to share stories about your best cup, tell others where to find a the best coffee, and make new friends.

I think we all pray to the first cup of the day. It's a silent prayer, sung while the mind is still foggy and blue. "O Magic Cup," it might go, "carry me above the traffic jam. Keep me civil in the subway. And forgive my employer, as you forgive me. Amen.

~Stewert Lee Allen

Only one thing is certain about coffee.... Wherever it is grown, sold, brewed, and consumed, there will be lively controversy, strong opinions, and good conversation.

~Mark Pendergrast

Black as the devil, hot as hell, pure as an angel, sweet as love.

~That's the recipe for coffee, according to the utterly French statesman Talleyrand (1754-1838)

The morning cup of coffee has an exhilaration about it which the cheering influence of the afternoon or evening cup of tea cannot be expected to reproduce.

~Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., "Over the Teacups," 1891

Coffee is the best thing to douse the sunrise with.

~Drew Sirtors

Over second and third cups flow matters of high finance, high state, common gossip and low comedy. [Coffee] is a social binder, a warmer of tongues, a soberer of minds, a stimulant of wit, a foiler of sleep if you want it so. From roadside mugs to the classic demi-tasse, it is the perfect democrat.

We invite you to join the movement of Suspended Coffees. Suspended Coffees at: www.suspendedcoffees.com is a cup of coffee paid for in advance by a willing coffee shop customer as an anonymous act of charity for anyone who is in need and with less fortune.

We want to get people supporting each other again, to show compassion love and empathy. We want to show we’ve all been there. W want to encourage everyone to keep going, to prove love exists. We want to get you through the day. To remind you to be strong. To celebrate you. To fight life’s misgivings right along with you and to remind you to be happy & live life!

Our mission? to have a 3rd of coffee shops all over the world supporting this movement by 2023.

On behalf of the nation of Canada I’d like to thank you for the Tim Horton’s picture. It’s basically our entire national identity :).
