The chatroom name is so bland. "Coffee." Look at all the creative names others have thought up:

  • "Root Access" for Super User
  • "The DMZ" for Security
  • "The Renderfarm" for Blender
  • "The Litter Box" for Pets
  • "The Hangar" for Aviation
  • "You Are Here" for Travel
  • "The Water Cooler" for The Workplace
  • "The Whiteboard" for Programmers
  • "The Nineteenth Byte" for Code Golf
  • etc...

Can we think of a better name for our chatroom?

Only one idea per answer, please. Vote up the ideas that you like!

Stolen from Lifehacks meta, which was in turn stolen from PPCG meta. But that's okay, because I wrote both of those posts too. :P

  • Can't we all list our ideas in a community wiki answer, and we can choose our favorites in the comment section? Feb 3 '15 at 22:51

    This sounds a bit too similar to a certain app to me.

    "What are you doing on the computer dear?" "Just chatting on the Grinder, I'll be done in a minute!" "You what?"

The Coffehouse

Since a coffeehouse is where you take a break and have a chat. So my vote goes for "The Coffehouse".

"Discussing the War in a Paris Café", The Illustrated London News 17 September 1870

"Discussing the War in a Paris Café", The Illustrated London News 17 September 1870


'The coffee-mill' - grinding ourselves a coffee here



Too subtle?
It is referring to the name of this quite famous painting of a café late at night:

"The roast"

followed by more text to sate the character demon.


just "café" ...

Above the line is my answer. The rest is just filler to fulfill minimum length criterion.


"The Coffee Break"

Not exactly a thing as much as a time, but take it for what it's worth...


Moka Mocha

They rhyme and it sounds awesome and rolls off the tongue.


Bean Me Up

This appeals to my sci-fi nerdy background!

I do know that it is an existing Coffee Shop, but if there are no copyright issues, it would be awesome!


Since we're throwing out ideas how about "Crema"




"The Brewing Station"

Another idea that might work...


The Jampot

After the first coffee shop in London.


"The Puck"

Was also thinking "The Whack Box", but terminology might not be consistent there. I think 'puck' is universal for the spent grounds in a portafilter.


"Coffee Drops"

Or a variation on the idea, such as "Coffee Dripping", "Coffee Brewing".


"The Baristas", or even "The Barista Room"


"Stackbucks Coffee"

Sorry, that was too tempting... I like the chatty aspect, though.

    I don't like the inclusion of an existing brand name in the branding of this stack exchange.
