Thank you Stanford Daily!

Great article in the Stanford Daily on February 18th, 2009. Thank you Caroline Caselli!

Here's a little snippet:
"The CoHo emits a cozy aura with its mismatched sofas and rustic tables. The walls are covered by smatterings of whimsical artwork — close up paintings of faces that resemble the cover of "Super Size Me," a still life of a coffee mug and caricatures of famous Stanford-affiliated people, from Reese Witherspoon to Robin Lopez..."

A New Fry?

The buzz of conversation. The smell of coffee. The sound of the grind. The lifting of the spoon to taste the warm, delicious soup...Good times are happening here at The CoHo. This has always been your coffee house. We stand by you, and you stand by us. So we want to take this time to get your thoughts.

We are thinking about going green. Like really green, yet with any new trend comes the higher price tag. You may not realize, but 'tater spoons are muy expensivo (in comparison to plastics) for anyone at the moment, let alone an independent coffee house. Do you genuinely think it would bring in more business to compensate for our possible increase in spending? Would you come here more if you knew your take-out was better for the environment? Here's a lovely fact that makes my heart flutter: a biodegradable potato spoon composts in 180 days as opposed to a plastic spoon, that well, doesn't. We're also looking into corn cutlery, but our findings reveal that potato ones are more versatile. They can maintain their spoon form at up to 200 degrees F. (You could eat potato soup, hash browns, latkes, heck, a baked potato (!) all with a perhaps one of their old 'tater friends from the field. They're born together, raised together, eaten together, degrade together, enter the potato Form together...jeepers, I think my heart is melting...)

Being locally and privately owned, we do want to do our part in caring for the Earth while still being able to serve you! Being Eco-friendly is on our minds at The CoHo these days, so please share your thoughts to help us. You can either post your response or email Thanks for caring as we try to learn how best to care as well. Cheers!
