  • First of all you need to know that my family owns a coffeehouse. My father had built our home and business after the War of Independence in 1783. At first there weren't many customers, but business improved when President Washington’s house was built two blocks away.Father was a carpenter, but he unfortunately, fell off a ladder and died two months after the coffeehouse opened. Then Grandfather joined us.
