The east side of Portland, Oregon is a haven for specialty coffee shops. For coffee enthusiasts, it’s quite the luxury to have your pick of locations within walking distance, but for coffee shop owners the lay of the land looks quite different. Standing out can be tough; making your mark and building a community is even tougher.
It’s no surprise when a plethora of nut milks lands in, say, Los Angeles. But if I were to tell you that one of specialty coffee’s biggest nut milk innovators stakes their claim to America’s Third Coast—Lake Michigan—you might be surprised. Near-centenarian coffee-and-nut-roaster Ferris Coffee operates cafes in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where the company puts its knowledge of both coffee and nuts to the test in a staggering menu of rotating nut milks and beguiling drinks made with said milks.
How much cold brew is too much? In a city not reputed for knowing its limits, there may be no ceiling on this particular coffee trend. Whether it’s to slake the thirst of Gotham’s grossest summer day or because you love that cup of cold brew in the snow (these people do walk among us), there are more—inexplicably more—high quality cold coffee options in New York City than ever before.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
