Week Fourteen: Whom You Have Condemn'd
Happy Sunday! Welcome to our weekly celebration of coffee, food, Shakespeare and song. Add your own pot-luck dish by recording and sharing a favorite piece of Shakespeare or Sunday song … and we’ll pair it with a brunchy dish and cup of Joe.

Ever since we discovered the benefits of grinding coffee from frozen, we’ve been keen advocates of vacuum-sealing small amounts of roasted coffee, so that you can keep that rare and expensive microlot on ice, and always …
Henry VI (Part One) - Act V - Scene IV

But you, that are polluted with your lusts,
Stain'd with the guiltless blood of innocents,
Corrupt and tainted with a thousand vices,
Because you want the grace that others have,
You judge it straight a thing impossible
To compass wonders but by help of devils.
No, misconceived! Joan of Arc hath been
A virgin from her tender infancy,
Chaste and immaculate in very thought;
Whose maiden blood, thus rigorously effused,
Will cry for vengeance at the gates of heaven.
