Coffee of Doom is a coffee and espresso shop, owned and operated by Dora Bianchi in Northampton, Massachusetts. It is popular among the alternative community and favorably reviewed for its icy customer service.. It is open from 7 AM except on weekends and stays open well into the evening.
Coffee of Doom is in a 100-year-old building near Fresh Cuts Salon and Panda House. Panda House is on a perpendicular street in but is visible face-on from the window in and moves yet again in .
The full name of the shop was not completely known until the series of strips fromthrough .
Operations and EmployeesEdit
Coffee of Doom has been in Dora's hands for a couple of years.
Coffee of Doom employees currently include many of the characters, including Faye and Penelope, and most recently Hannelore and Cosette, while former employees include Raven (who has since returned to work there) and Sara.
The shop is busy and profitable, but does not provide Dora a large income. She has enough business to have recently taken on Hannelore and Cosette (and, most recently, Dale) as new employees, but worries about its future despite increasing sales. A typical weekday sales volume is 257 cups.
Baristas are specifically trained to be contemptuous to the general public.
Drinks, "Specials" and Other OfferingsEdit
They offer WiFi to guests.
Coffee of Doom is a veritable armory, equipped with a broadsword behind the counter, a 9-iron for customers who order overly complicated drinks, and a Malaysian Battle Spatula. Coffee of Doom is home to many of the strip's weapons.
Coffee of Doom is noteworthy for unusual and creative specials.
The front of the store is to the left, while the back (the alley where Faye is usually seen taking out the garbage) is on the right.
The sink is right behind the baked goods case; directly overhead is the mug shelf with the famous COD Emoticon mugs.
There is a basement, where Dora roasts beans weekly in a secret process of which she is quite proud. Dora has considered remodeling it as a cafe. Although the basement has an infestation of spiders it is free of rats, at least to Dora's knowledge.
