Good Coffee People

Congrats are in order for the coffee providers of Franklin Avenue, each of whom has something to celebrate this week. Leading off, Tony Fisher was the Wall Street Journal's Donor of the Day, an acknowledgment he earned by selling a $10 dollar cup of coffee and not keeping a cent for himself. Fisher's brew, which is made from rare Ethiopian longberry mocha harrar beans imported by Gillies Coffee, is apparently one of the tastiest treats a coffee snob can ask for. Fisher will donate all the proceeds from the sale of this exotic cup o' Joe will go to the Ethiopian Children's Fund.

Meanwhile, Jae of the Breukelen Coffee House will be appearing in "East of Main Street: Asians Aloud," a new HBO documentary that premieres this Friday in celebration of Asian-American Heritage Month. Catch Jae in the trailer here.
