A cupful helps wake us up. Powers us thru the day. And is a way of life for some. Join us, as we take you inside Mid Michigan coffee spots -- from brewing secrets, to new spots, to diverse ways of enjoying the drink.

Music Helped Owosso Coffee Shop Find Its Purpose

Foster Coffee Company in Owosso traces its roots to a rock band life and its future to being a community center. 

Nicholas Pidek is an Owosso, Michigan native.  Pidek and his friend Jonathan Moore once toured the country as part of indie rock band "SoSaveMe."

Now the two reach people through coffee instead of music. They started Foster Coffee Company along Washington Street. It's more than a cafe, it's a place for activities, meetup groups and yes, an occasional concert.
