Ways to Make a Morning Joe Smoothie
The variations on a coffee smoothie recipe are wide and long. The first and most obvious variations in the type of coffee used. Additional ingredients such as bananas, oats, peanut butter, chocolate, caramel, peppermint, and protein powder are just a few. The options are limited to your imagination and taste.
This particular recipe has bananas added to the mix and brings a natural sweetness to the drink. We topped it with some whipped cream, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cocoa powder to add an extra punch to the smoothie.
How to Store Coffee Smoothie
You can store a smoothie in a refrigerator or thermos for a few hours but after that, it melts. In the freezer, it forms a solid block so that is not an option either. The best policy is to only make the amount you plan on drinking at the time.
History of Coffee
The first records of coffee date back to the 15th century. Sufi monasteries in Yemen employed coffee as an aid to concentration during prayers. From there coffee spread to Persia in the early 16th century. Through commercial Mediterranean trade routes, coffee reached India and the East Indies by the mid-17th century.
Coffee houses were established in Western Europe by the late 17th century, especially in England and Germany. After the Boston Tea Party of 1773, large numbers of Americans switched to drinking coffee during the American Revolution because drinking tea had become unpatriotic.
Because of San Francisco’s dominance in Pacific shipping routes, and the rise of the railroads connecting the country’s interior, a multitude of importers and roasters sprung up in the bay area. Folgers had its start in San Francisco, and Hills Brothers, which perfected the vacuum sealing process that kept in roasted coffee’s flavor, was just down the street.
The Metropolitan City of Berkeley, California
Berkeley is a city in Northern California on the east side of San Francisco Bay. It’s home to the University of California, Berkeley, the birthplace of the 1960s Free Speech Movement. The 1914 Sather Tower, known as the Campanile, has views of the campus and the bay. The open-air Hearst Greek Theatre stages major concerts. Clustered on and near Telegraph Avenue, south of the university, are cafes, shops, and music stores.
A Brief History of Berkeley, California
The site of Berkeley was the territory of the Chochenyo/Huchiun band of the Ohlone people when the first Europeans arrived. Evidence of their existence in the area includes pits in rock formations, which they used to grind acorns, and a large shell-mound, now mostly leveled and covered up, along the shoreline of San Francisco Bay at the mouth of Strawberry Creek.
The first people of European descent arrived with the De Anza Expedition in 1776. The De Anza Expedition led to the establishment of the Spanish Presidio of San Francisco at the entrance to San Francisco Bay. The land was given to the investors from the Rancho San Antonio land grant in 1820 for use to develop a new community. When the area was settled in 1853, it was given the name, Ocean View. In 1878, the city became incorporated as Berkeley.
Berkeley’s slow growth ended abruptly with the Great San Francisco earthquake of 1906. The town and other parts of the East Bay escaped serious damage, and thousands of refugees flowed across the Bay. Berkeley was the site of one of the 1960s’ first peace protests that led to the Free Speech Movement of the Sixties and Seventies.
Tourism in Berkeley, California
Over the years, Berkeley has become a major tourist destination. Attractions in Berkeley include numerous bookshops, restaurants known throughout the world, the Berkeley Rose Garden, Botanical Garden, and the University Art Museum. Berkeley is home to water sports and fishing championships, owing to excellent marinas and crystal-clear waters. Celebrating its cultural diversity, Berkeley is home to museums, technology and science centers, and parks. Highlights include the Phoebe Hearst Museum of Anthropology; People’s Park, Lawrence Hall of Science; U.C. Berkeley Museum of Paleontology, and Habitot Children’s Museum.
French cuisine, American cuisine, Italian cuisine, Mexican cuisine, Chinese cuisine, and Japanese cuisine have all influenced Californian fusion cuisine, though this is by no means a complete list of influencing cultures.

When it comes to coffee the bean source, quality, and roaster are all important. To have superb coffee, you need both great beans and a great roaster. That’s why we use a 35-kilo Loring Smart Roaster to ensure our beans are roasted to perfection. We also source our beans from farmers around the world who have a commitment to responsible farming and their communities. We love when we see the direct impact that our business has on the farmers. Also in this vein, in our cafes, we use organic Clover milk and the very best almond, soy, and oat milk that we can find.
