In early April, two weeks before she opened her latest restaurant, Talula's Garden, Aimee Olexy, crowned royalty of the region's culinary scene, met with her coffee supplier to choose beans she would serve at the end of each finely tuned meal. He'd brought her usual favorites from Nicaragua, Brazil, and Africa. But a stranger in the cache caught her eye. "What's in that little unmarked bag?" she asked. The supplier didn't answer. Instead, he brewed a small batch and poured her a cup. "I loved, loved, loved it," Olexy said.

WASHINGTON - Compared with uncaffeinated women, those who drink the equivalent of four or more cups of coffee a day are more likely to drink alcohol and smoke cigarettes and less likely to volunteer in church or community groups, a new study has found. But it also found that well-caffeinated women have a key health advantage over their more abstemious sisters: They're less likely to become depressed. The latest study of caffeine suggests that women who get several jolts of java a day may do more than get a quick boost: Their mental health may see sustained improvement even as the physical stresses of aging accumulate.

AUTHORITIES SAY a woman has been arrested in a months-long series of thefts in which more than $3,000 worth of bagged coffee was taken from Wawa stores around the region. Rebecca Julian, 48, of Wilmington, admitted stealing the coffee and making fraudulent returns in an interview with detectives Friday, West Goshen Township police said. Police had released surveillance images of the theft suspect this week, saying she would steal bags of coffee from one Wawa, then take them to another location and return them for cash.

Disposable coffee cups are lousy for the environment, but the reusable kind are bulky and prone to drip the last drops wherever they are stashed. Contemplating this dilemma (over coffee), a few buddies came up with the idea of a collapsible, leak-proof coffee cup that could be stashed in a pocket. Thus was born the Stojo Collapsible Pocket Cup, a 12-ounce, mostly silicone mug that smashes down to a 3.5-inch-diameter, 2-inch-thick disk, making it a great take-along for travel or just when out and about.

First we knew him as "Johnny Mac" McDonald, the rising star chef at Snackbar tricked-out with molecular gastro powders and gels. Then we knew him as Jonathan Adams, the more mature, back-to-basics fish-and-chips master at Pub & Kitchen. Then he became a coffee roaster with a food truck - and ultimately quit restaurants altogether. These days, you'll find the father of three boys grilling toast and serving pour-overs at Rival Bros., the sleek corner cafe he recently opened with partner Damien Pileggi at 25th and Lombard.

The Gryphon Cafe, with its artful mural, open mikes and laid-back vibe, has been a fixture in Wayne for nearly 17 years. But for the last three, owner Rich Mattis has been house-roasting the cafe's own beans, too. "I'm still new at this," Mattis concedes as explanation for his constant experimentation with different roasts. No matter, I've been impressed at each visit with both the quality and complexity of his beans. Whether it's the round and fruity GST espresso (Gryphon Standard Time)

HAVANA - Clarinets, reedy and thin, played something I'd never heard before. The low whine hung like humidity up and down narrow Consulado Avenue in Old Havana. I cocked my ear and detected the music coming from somewhere upstairs, through windows of a decaying, Spanish colonial-looking apartment building within sight of the national opera house. Brightening with each step as I drew closer, the sound wove an unforgettable sonic tapestry somewhere between laughing klezmer and the noble shriek of bagpipes.

A West Philadelphia man was sentenced to 111/2 to 23 months in prison Tuesday for throwing a cup of scalding-hot coffee on a doughnut shop cashier as they argued about his bill. "I want to apologize to the victim for the harm I caused her," David Timbers told Common Pleas Court Judge Rayford A. Means. "There's no excuse for what I've done. " Means sentenced Timbers, 54, well below the 48 to 66 months in prison recommended by state sentencing guidelines, because, he said, he wanted the victim's medical bills reimbursed as soon as possible.

The number of teenagers who would know where Papua New Guinea is without first Googling it is likely slim. Eli Gutierrez and Isabella Bacciarini not only know, they are financially linked to and entrepreneurially motivated by the island in the southwest Pacific Ocean off the coast of Australia. The two Philadelphians, both 17, are in the coffee business, along with some other students at the String Theory Charter School, where "we really believe in bringing authentic learning experiences to kids," said Jason Corosanite, the school's cofounder and chief innovation officer.

When Andee Hefler refurbished her farmhouse in Lower Gwynedd, she kept the outside walls intact but gutted the inside. The result: Housed in a 17th-century home is a contemporary kitchen complete with a smorgasbord of automated elements. "My husband, Brad, loves automation, so we put some really fun things in the house," said Hefler, owner of Andrea Lynn Interiors. The smart home's Control4 system operates everything from lighting to raising and lowering the shades to controlling the TV, all by touching buttons on a wall panel in the kitchen doorway.

If you can forgo those 3.5 grande caramel macchiatos you drink at Starbucks every day, you can save the money you don't spend and use it for a down payment on your first house. That is, of course, if you have the patience to put the $15 or so you save in the piggy bank seven days a week, 52 weeks a year for the next five years. According to Clare Trapasso, writing for Realtor.com, the typical Philadelphian needs 12.1 percent of the current $235,000 median regional home sale price, or roughly $28,000, to become a homeowner.

A restaurant may not be able to be all things to all eaters, but there is a new breed of eateries in the city that are giving it a go - offering meals morning, noon, and night. Unlike the traditional diner, these breakfast-lunch-and-dinner restaurants of the moment not only offer more ambitious cooking, but they often visually transform over the course of a day. Hungry Pigeon, a charming storefront in South Philadelphia, starts out as an airy cafe serving morning coffee and biscuits with sausage gravy, then moves to salad and wine lunches.

Given the attractiveness of its cast, especially leads Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan, the clothes they wear as characters Claire and Jamie Fraser might be overlooked. No danger there, though, given the brilliance of costume designer Terry Dresbach (wife of show creator Ron Moore). Dresbach, Moore, Balfe and Heughan were on hand as the Paley Center for Media in Los Angeles unveiled "The Artistry of Outlander: An Exhibit of Costumes and Set Design" this week. The exhibit, continuing through Aug. 14, spotlights the amazing costumes and sets from Season 2 of the show, which airs Saturdays at 9 p.m. on Starz.

You would think a 78-year-old nun in rural northeastern Pennsylvania would know better, but State Police say it's true: Sister Agnes Pennino has been charged with stealing $23 worth of food and toiletries from a Surplus Outlet near Berwick, Columbia County. The crime, they say, was premeditated. About 3:45 p.m. Monday, Pennino, dressed in civilian clothes, entered the store, grabbed a shopping cart, and eventually put snacks, coffee, soap, and shampoo inside several of the store's distinctive orange shopping bags, according to troopers and store personnel interviewed by WNEP-TV in Scranton.
