A new wave of coffee is brewing in Shepherdstown. Hypnocoffee Roastery, just off the beaten path at 104 S. King St., around the corner from the Sweet Shop Bakery and the Shepherdstown Public Library on German Street, is the little shop that offers what coffee aficionados refer to as the “third wave” of coffee. The third-wave movement is more about quality and less about speed, treating coffee more like a culinary experience, such as drinking wine, than a quick way to give you a morning jolt.

Nothing calms me down like a coffee shop. You see, coffee shops supply one of the greatest drinks in the world: chai tea. This wonderful drink is a mixture of black tea, milk, a sweetener and spices such as cinnamon, ginger, star anise, peppercorn and clove to overcome the sweetness slightly. It goes down in a sweet and sometimes spicy blend. In fact, it is so breathtaking, that it makes me realize the simple pleasures that I value so much. In a way, a place that serves this drink should be revered by me, seeing that it creates such a peace between me and the outside world.

HAGERSTOWN Jake Baer knows what a sweet spot he got when he bought the former Saum's Jewelers store on Public Square. He wants everyone else to enjoy the location, too. A furrier had inquired about the storefront, but Baer wanted something accessible to more people, so he chose local resident Clifford Lane's plan for a coffee shop. Coffee is one of those items that can draw a lot of people in, said Baer, an architect from Alexandria, Va., who has relatives in Hagerstown.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - When Joyce Holder thinks of coffee, she fondly remembers sitting on her porch and enjoying the company of her late husband. "I sit around with my coffee and dream. It's just always been a part of me," Holder said. It was on some of those dreams that she and her daughter, Felicee Harbaugh, opened Adventures in Coffee last February. The struggles of Holder and Harbaugh mirror those of many small-business people, but they enjoy seeing their regular customers and meeting new ones.

HAGERSTOWN - Complaints from some Long Meadow Shopping Center merchants about teenagers loitering outside Port City Java's open mic night have forced the coffee shop to pull the plug on its Thursday music program. "We've had some problems there with kids congregating Thursday night on shopping center property, banging on other store's windows ... It's gotten a little out of hand," Port City Java owner Vivienne Smith said. The shopping center's management on Tuesday asked Smith to "immediately" discontinue her shop's open mic night, which ran from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Thursdays.

bonnieb@herald-mail.com GREENCASTLE, Pa. - A dozen area residents gathered around for the love of poetry on a recent Friday evening. They listened to and discussed works by Alfred Lord Tennyson, Edgar Allan Poe, and Mary Oliver, as well as their own poetry, while sipping hot drinks at Cup O' Joe, a warm, homey coffee shop in Greencastle. With its sofa, ice cream parlor-style tables and chairs, hardwood floor and the aroma of specialty coffee, Cup O' Joe seems an ideal setting for the every-other-month gatherings.

An Annapolis restaurateur told Washington County liquor officials Wednesday that he wants to open a coffee shop with delivery service on Public Square in Hagerstown. Pietro Priola said during a hearing before the Board of License Commissioners for Washington County that if everything goes as planned, he will open the coffee shop around Aug. 1 at 2 W. Washington St. “I just took it over about two weeks ago,” he said. “We're doing the coffee bar, coffee house with food. We're doing salads, sandwiches, soups, wraps and stuff like that.” Priola said he requested the hearing before the liquor board to discuss meeting the seating requirement to obtain a license to serve beer and local wines.

No one has ever accused me of being early for anything. Sometimes I can trick myself by pretending my deadline is earlier than it actually is. But usually, I can see through the "Kate-time" ruse and find myself scrambling.    Take Christmas, for example. No. Don't "take" it. I want to keep it — peaceful, unfrenzied - a time for family and friends to be together and appreciate and enjoy each other. I've never ventured out to shop on Black Friday. It saddens me that some stores opened for business on Thanksgiving this year.

Not going anywhere Drivers who spotted an “Eviction Services” van in front of Skyline Coffee at Hagerstown’s Public Square on a recent morning need not be alarmed, owner Ashley Haywood said. The eviction services company also provides trash-collection services for the downtown coffee shop, said Haywood, a member of the Hagerstown City Council. The coffee shop is not going anywhere, said Haywood, noting it would take a real act of force to budge it from its current location.

Ten years, a month and a couple of days ago, I wrote a story marking Totem Pole Playhouse's 50th anniversary. This year, the summer stock theater in Caledonia State Park in Fayetteville, Pa., is celebrating its 60th season. That's a long time. I know. I've lived 60 summers myself. My friend Marie Beck and I attended a Wednesday matinee performance of Neil Simon's "45 Seconds From Broadway," the season's second offering. I wasn't familiar with the play, but it was a perfect choice for Totem Pole and for me. John Putch came from California to direct it. The filmmaker, actor, writer and director of several television shows - including episodes of "Scrubs," "Ugly Betty" and "Cougar Town" - had never directed at the playhouse where he got his start.
