Excellence is in the Details

I don’t drink coffee.

Maybe a few rare occasions.  A few sips out of my wife’s cup now and then.  It’s not a Mormon thing, I just have enough trouble sleeping and enough history of digestive issues that I can skip java.

But I respect the fact that some of you find worship services impossible without the fruit of the bean, in fact, The Meeting House in Toronto has cup holders in every seat, and they ain’t communion cup holders.

Still, I’m told some church coffee is fairly mediocre. I know that for sure because of the people who smuggle outside coffee into the auditorium, which up here in Canada means Tim Horton’s coffee cups are the evidence of dissatisfaction with the church’s own product.

So I gotta say I’m impressed with a church that claims theirs is the best coffee in town. Like Kingston’s Café Church which features their own “Trinity” blend of three different coffees. 

Not having been, I don’t know how they rate on worship and teaching, but while they may not have the hottest worship band in town or a celeb preacher, I’ll bet that seeking excellence runs through all that they do.

So…how’s the coffee at your church?



  1. Loved this post. While there is no sipping during service at the quaint little white steepled church I attend, there is a very relaxed coffee time afterwards. I love the fellowship around the coffee urn more than the coffee :)

  2. coffee urn coffee. ugh. & I often prepare it!! Find it’s a seasonal drink, people like it in the cold wather, and in the morning, not so much the evening service.
