A Conservative Cafe is . . . Coffee Served Right.

Crown Point, Indiana is the home of the Conservative Cafe. Yes, it's the next great coffee chain competitor to Starbucks. Or, maybe not. But I love the idea, so much so that I would definitely consider franchise opportunities. It's a simple, yet great idea, particularly for attracting people who view all facets of life through their warped and jaundiced political lens, like me of course. I have two boxes: conservative or liberal. I'll put you in one or the other.

Beckham, the owner, may be onto something here. He also has the advantage of being situated in a relatively conservative neigborhood of Indiana. He sells four different flavors of coffee and the funny part is he designates a "strength" range from 1 through 4, 1 being the weakest and 4 being the strongest. So going from weakest to strongest, he serves, "The Liberal Blend," "The Moderate Blend," "The Conservative Blend," and the "Radical Right Blend." He also serves food-stuff like classic breakfast meals, sandwiches, and wraps.

Also, probably my favorite part, he sells conservative T-shirts. You can check them out here.

Best of luck to Beckham and his wife.

I think your tagline says it best; No Compromise, Know Peace. Know Compromise, No Peace. Do you really want to support silly divisiveness like this, when you know cooperation is the answer?

Man, if this whole blog is satire I am going to LOL my ASS OFF.

Well I'm glad I can at least make you laugh. Our tag line really refers to Israel and Palestine (and the other hostile middle eastern countries). Cooperation is sometimes the answer, but not all the time.

That's great! I live in uber liberal Seattle and if I owned a chain I would probably be beat with my bags of coffee!

BUT! I do love that idea!!
