  • Pittsburghers love their coffee – according to Carnegie-Mellon University, per capita, we drink more coffee than folks in any other city in North America.
  • What better way to brew up the perfect match than over coffee on a fall afternoon?  Coffee dating is still the most preferred first date according to online daters. 8 out of 10 singles prefer a first meeting over a casual cup of coffee.
  • Autumn may be the best season to fall in love according to behavioral anthropologists.  Fall jumpstarts the production of testosterone in men which is why women give birth more frequently in the months of August and September.
