Jack and Linda Kirshner believe coffee is an integral part of life—it's there when you wake up in the morning, at the end of a romantic dinner, or when you just need to destroy a possessed snowman. Though this vision has led the couple to found Coffee for Less, their journey began well before that. More than two decades ago, the Kirshners started their first company within their apartment's mocha-scented confines. The venture, named Coffee Serv, would eventually become one of the largest office coffee-service providers in Philadelphia.

Today, Coffee For Less serves as the online face for the Kirshners' company and fills kitchens across America with the aromas of fresh-brewed joe. A Starbucks-preferred office coffee provider, the online store also ships hand-ground Aloha Island coffee beans and coffee pods to homes and well-decorated caves. These items can brew within Coffee For Less's selection of appliances, which include Cuisinart coffeemakers.

Coffee For Less isn't content to just sell hot beverages, though. They also want to educate their patrons, and do so through articles about products and coffee-themed infographics. This effort to reach out echoes the company's charitable work, which includes a partnership with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and the company's own Hit The Books scholarship, which they award to college students within the United States.

Through the Looking Glass’s culinary wizards deftly silence hunger pangs with meticulously prepared lunch and dinner menus of upscale fare, welcoming diners to bring along their favorite libations within an eatery emanating romantic vibes. Pairs of midday munchers can bridge the gap between breakfast and second lunch with a leisurely lunch that kicks off with sizzling spoonfuls of soup, such as a zing-infused crab soup with cayenne pepper. Then, mouth dive into a petite filet-mignon sandwich that snuggles grilled tenderloin, sautéed mushrooms, and grilled peppers into the embrace of homemade bread, or sate herbivorous cravings sans chlorophyll injections with a portobello-mushroom salad dappled with sun-dried tomatoes.
