We've got a cup of caffeine knowledge about a town in Kentucky that has eight of the best locally-owned coffee shops in the Bluegrass State.

COFFEE IS LIFE!

I know some people aren't coffee drinkers.  Take, for instance, my co-host Chad he hates the taste of coffee but loves a good hot chocolate.  Growing up I didn't like coffee but I always loved a sip of my mom's coffee because it made me feel like I was cool.  Momma would always tell me that coffee was an acquired taste and one day I would understand.  Well, she was right.  I have grown to love coffee.  I don't drink a ton of it but I love about half a cup in the morning at work and on Sunday mornings I drink a cup before church.

HOW DO YOU TAKE YOUR COFFEE?

Nowadays, you can get your coffee made in a million different ways.  For years I was just a plain jane hot coffee drinker.  Actually, I liked a little coffee in my cream and sugar LOL.  I love my coffee now with one Splenda and a coconut or almond milk creamer.  If it's the weekend I will splurge and get a Starbucks Vanilla Sweet Cream Nitro Cold Brew with Sweet Cream Foam.  It is DELICIOUS Y'all!  When I am really treating myself I'll head down to The Creme Coffee house here in Owensboro and get a Zebra Chiller.  This is made with one or two shots of espresso and white and dark chocolate syrups I add almond milk and then it is put in the blender with ice.  They add non-dairy whip cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup and you have a little piece of heaven right here on earth...YUMMO!

Their mission is to give back.  Since they opened in 2011, they have given over $100,000 to local non-profits in our community specifically the homeless community.

The reason it is named Overflow is simply that the Moore family wanted others to know just how very blessed their family has been.
