The doc recently took a weekend trip home to soak up some sun and baseball. He brought me back this amazing cacti mug, which is making early mornings that much easier
I could drink coffee out of my Chemex every day if I had the time. This time, I tried some local, organic coffee from a roaster in Louisville, KY, that a close family friend sent for the holidays. It was delicious, to say the least, and served up in vintage mugs made in Syracuse, NY,Continue reading “chemex.”
One of my favorite mugs was thrifted. I think I randomly spotted it in a Goodwill near my home and boom, it was mine. If you know me, you know I kind of have a thing for pigs. I pay homage to all things porcine–delicately placing little pigs in small corners of my world. I’mContinue reading “thrifted.”
I drink a lot of coffee. Ridiculous amounts, in fact, which you know, if you’ve been a reader of this here blog for, say, a day. On Saturday, I visited my friend Mack, who lives in Providence, and we perused this amazing little local kitchen shop within walking distance of her house, Stock Culinary Goods.

I’m not into frilly coffee drinks. I take mine black, straight up, no add ins. I’m not picky about my coffee either. If its there, I drink it. I certainly appreciate the best of coffees, but let’s just say, I can’t live without it, and so I’ll get it any way I can. That beingContinue reading “iced latte.”
My new mug, purchased on etsy and enjoyed in all Beyonce glory. Grab yourself one; your coffee will get that much hotter in the early morning.
My sister gave me a brilliant 30th gift this year: membership in a coffee of the month club with Citizen Bean, plus a chemex brewer and a gorgeous little bean grinder. I received my first batch from Citizen Bean two days ago, along with a brilliant pairing of chocolate espresso dusted almonds. Brilliant.
Hot pressed and cold pressed coffee from the incredible Intelligentsia in Chicago, from me and my guy’s annual windy city pilgrimage for July’s Pitchfork Festival. If we could do this every day, we’d be, well, straight happy. Of course, if you want to see snaps from the trip, here.
I wandered down the way to this little coffee shop in central Phoenix called Lux and boy is it a beauty. They not only are purveyors of delicious coffees and baked goods, but have a legit food menu and a real bar with serious mixologists. I’ve spent the greater part of my afternoon here andContinue reading “coffee, 6.20”
I’m in Phoenix for two weeks visiting my guy; he has to work for most of it, but he did leave me a gorgeous ruby red and a pot of brew to kick of my morning. Little things.
Finally. My favorite season: iced coffee season.
