What is a coffee clatch?
The term “coffee klatch” comes from the German word, “kaffeeklatsch,” which translates to coffee (kaffee) + gossip (klatsch). It refers to a group of friends getting together over a cup of coffee, usually at someone’s house - or in our case virtually! The word “klatsch” has turned into “klatch” or even “clatch” over the years, and both are considered acceptable to use.
Cafés for Care Partners are an opportunity to get together informally outside the context of a support group. The cafes are definitely supportive – but they're also periods of respite, a chance to kick back, go someplace new with new and old friends, and share a cup of coffee or glass of wine.
