B2 Coffee: Sip and Stay a While

April 8, 2015 4:02 pm

Occupying a loft-like space, B2 Coffee provides a relaxed atmosphere for its young professional crowd. Big glass windows allow for plenty of bright, natural light, which is ideal for studying or reading.

B2 baristas are “fanatics about their coffee,” according to a Yelp reviewer. Serving bold, flavorful brews as drips or pour overs, cold brewed coffee, and espresso, locals say they appreciate the time that goes into making their drinks. Coffee is not the only thing on the menu here: the cafe also serves teas and pastries to pair with its drinks, and house-made almond milk is on offer for customers avoiding dairy.

B2 Coffee is open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. Stop in on your morning commute and grab a cup.

Soothing Home Remedies for Sore Throats

March 27, 2015 5:02 pm

When the cold weather takes a toll on your household in the form of sore throats and stuffy noses, you’re likely searching for any way to find a bit of relief. Here are a few home remedies that might just soothe your sore throat without the use of over-the-counter medications—just remember to check with your doctor first!

  1. Gargle with salt water. Sore throats are caused when the cells in the mucous membranes become swollen and inflamed, and gargling with salt water helps reduce this swelling. By warming the saltwater solution, you can also wash away the excess mucous and clear your nasal passages.
  2. Make an apple cider vinegar drink. Apple cider vinegar is filled with healthy properties, and its high levels of acidity help to kill bacteria that cause illness. Make a drink using one tablespoon of ACV, one tablespoon of honey and one cup of hot water, then sip it slowly and feel the relief.
  3. Try marshmallow root. This strange root named after the sugary candy helps to coat the throat and relieve pain. Steep one tablespoon of the dried root in boiling water for 30 to 60 minutes, then strain and drink.
  4. Chew on cloves. For fast and easy relief, try the natural painkiller eugenol found in cloves. Simply suck on a whole clove until it becomes soft enough to chew like gum, then spit it out when finished.
