The Best Coffee Songs of All Time

The conversation was started on Twitter a few weeks ago and it got us thinking: what are the best songs about coffee? This inspired us to create a list of the best songs about coffee and even some that reference our favorite beverage. And we want to hear from you too! What is your favorite coffee song?

Frank Sinatra – The Coffee Song

“And when their ham and eggs need savor 
Coffee ketchup gives ‘em flavor 
Coffee pickles way outsell the dill 
Why, they put coffee in the coffee in Brazil”

Beastie Boys – Intergalactic

“I like my sugar with coffee and cream.”

Squeeze – Black Coffee in Bed

“There’s a stain on my notebook 
Where your coffee cup was 
And there’s ash in the pages 
Now I’ve got myself lost”

Bob Dylan – One More Cup Of Coffee

“One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee ‘fore I go
To the valley below.”

Otis Redding – Cigarettes and Coffee

“It’s early in the morning
About a quarter till three
I’m sitting’ here talkin’ with my baby
Over cigarettes and coffee, now”

Rent The Pearl Cup for Your Party!

Rent our Pearl Cup Coffee location on Henderson Avenue for your next fabulous party, reception or corporate event!

We can provide the space any night of the week from 8pm-1am.  Need our signature coffee drinks to be a party of your event? We can figure a Barista into your budget (but if you didn’t want one, well…then that’s just silly…but you don’t have to have a barista.) and the event organizer is welcome to bring in beer or alcohol at their own expense. 

Note: Our barista would not be able to serve it from behind the bar because we don’t have a license to do so but you can have ice chests or buckets.

The space is rented in 2 hour blocks for $500 each without a barista.  With a barista, there is an additional charge of $7.50 per person which includes unlimited coffee/espresso drinks.  If you only want drip coffee and no espresso, that would be $5 per person.  If you wanted a barista but not the upfront cost, we could do a cash bar where your guests pay for their drinks themselves.

People are already booking so grab your calendar, mark your date and email our Multi-Unit Manager, Crystal, now:  [email protected]

We will help you plan the perfect date for your next big event!  All bookings are done on a first come, first served basis.

Tuesday Night Music: Ben Tavera King

Our Tuesday night music series continues on March 5 with guitarist Ben Tavera King!

NPR recently cited Ben’s unusual guitar style which merges jazz & flamenco with traditional
Tex-Mex on his “Border Crossings” release: “It was ahead of its time for mixing traditional
Latino/flamenco guitar with contemporary concepts.”

This should be a fun night at the Henderson shop, so come unwind on Tuesday night with a signature Pearl Latte and some tunes from 6p-8p.

Whole Bean Coffee of the Week: The Pacamara Reserve

This week Pearl Cup Coffee has a specialty reserve blend in!

The Pacamara Reserve coffee from Topeca Coffee is a strictly high-grown coffee, which means that this coffee is grown higher than 4,500 feet above sea level. Beans grown at this altitude tend to mature slower and yield a harder bean, which allows for a great consistency in the coffee making these SHG coffees more desirable and generally more expensive than those that are grown at lower elevations. Topeca processes this lot with a machine wash process and gives it a light roast resulting in a clean, lively coffee with high citrus acidity, herbal zesty aromas, and sweet and spicy flavor notes.

Come in and try it for a limited time!
