Hello all! I apologize for the recent gap in posts but with the end of the semester at Point Park I was swamped with things to do and couldn't find the time to blog. However, now with all of that aside you can expect many weekly posts from The Pittsburgh Coffee Pot.

With Summer fast approaching everyone is always looking for some fun and interesting things to do. Here are some Summer Coffee Events you may be interested.
