Two cups? Four cups? Eight. For many San Mateo residents, that exact number means the difference between rocking that morning presentation or falling asleep at the board meeting.
That fresh brew has undergone several iterations from the traditional cup of joe with different vanilla sweeteners, Arabian beans or chocolate- and candy-flavored additives.
And it’s not just the cup, but the atmosphere and service that delivers that perfect cup of coffee.
