352/365 - Beaners

This is by far my favorite place to get coffee. (Screw Starbucks!) This company started here in East Lansing, MI and was originally called Beaners. They have since changed their name to Biggby, as we found out here in the Midwest that Beaners was a racist term. Who knew?

    Really? Who is it racist against? I am so out of the loop that way.

    I guess it's racist toward hispanic people. My brother came out to visit from CA a few years back and couldn't believe we had a coffee shop named beaners. We had no idea!
