Hey guys, I'm going to make a coffee run. Anybody want anything?
I could use some caffeine. Where are you going, Starbucks or Luckin'?
I was thinking of Luckin'. They've got a special promotion going on right now.
OK, cool. Just get me a large Americano with two sugar packets on the side, please.
Large Americano, two sugars. No problem. Anybody else?
Yes, pick me up a cappuccino, if you don't mind. Oh, and a blueberry muffin.
Got it. Do you think Betty will want anything?
She's not really a coffee drinker. Maybe an herbal tea?
Okay sounds good. Anything else? Last chance, everybody.
I think we're good. Thanks, Tim!

A brief history of the coffee break茶歇小史
Why do we take coffee breaks?In the early 1900s, factories implemented eight-hour workdays and designated rest hours. During break times, workers would sip the bitter brew to recharge before starting another shift. Soon after, street-side coffee stands became common in urban areas, and coffee counters and machines popped up across the country.
However, the residents of Stoughton, Wisconsin aren't convinced. The tiny town argues that its early immigrant workers didn't just take coffee breaks - they invented them. In 1880, a tobacco warehouse hired local Norwegian women to help with tobacco stripping. The warehouse was close to their homes, allowing them to periodically leave and check on their children, prepare food, and grab a cup of coffee. Today, the town honors this history by hosting an annual Coffee Break Festival.
但是在美国威斯康星州Stoughton小镇的人却不这么认为。这个镇的人认为自己镇上早年来的移民不仅仅享受茶歇，更发明了茶歇。1880年，烟草仓库雇佣当地的挪威妇女撕烟草。仓库离这些妇女的家不远，她们可以时不时回家看看孩子、做饭，再趁机喝杯咖啡。现在，Stoughton镇为了纪念这段历史，每年都会举办茶歇节（Coffee Break Festival）。
