October 4, 2013

CUMBERLAND — For those who love coffee, sometimes there just isn’t time to go out to a coffee house for that beloved cup of joe.
Michael Houle and his wife, Linda, have a solution to that quandary with their Coffee Breaks single-serving coffee and accessories store at 2275 Diamond Hill Road, near the Route 295 interchange.

The Houles stock over 200 flavors of one-cup coffee, tea and juice packets for Keurig-style coffee makers, as well as a line of whole bean coffee from the Mills Coffee Roasters Co., on Broad Street in Providence.

Their wishes didn’t go unanswered for long, as Pawtucket’s Max Read Field will now serve as the Clippers’ “home field” against the Saints.

“It was our first loss to Central Falls dating back to 2003; it was our Blackstone Valley Invitational (Tournament) game,” he stated. “We hadn't lost to them in over a decade, and I told the kids that it shouldn't have happened, that they were playing too lazy.”
