Coffee To The People Needs Your VOTE!

Coffee to the People has been nominated to be AOL Cityguide's Best Coffee House 2007, and they need your VOTE!

Please click the link and vote for them now. . .

Oh. You want to know why I think you should give Coffee To The People your vote? Okay, here goes:

Several members of my family opened a coffee house in the San Francisco area a while back. The brain child of my older brother and his wife, Coffee to the People is partly owned by my parents (who help out behind the counter when they are in town and take care of the books), my older brother and his wife, and my sister, who has managed the joint for the past year and a half or so.

Coffee to the People is located just off Haight Street in San Francisco, and it brings organic, fair-trade coffee and free wireless access to the neighborhood. One of their goals is to provide coffee with a conscience because, as their website explains, "you shouldn't have to choose between drinking coffee and doing what's right." They pay their employees well above minimum wage and offer healthcare benefits for employees who work over 20 hours a week (and they don't schedule them to work just 19.75 hours to cheat them out of healthcare, either).

You can read the AOL Cityguide description of the coffeehouse here.

And you can vote for Coffee to the People here.

And if you wouldn't mind, I'd sure appreciate it if you'd pass along my request for votes to all your friends and family. And if you have a blog, feel free to post the request there, too! Oh. And please. Only vote once! THANKS!
