Bought this Gorilla brand, which is Brooklyn local, pre-packaged at Whole Foods recently, and kept it for the day I knew would come (and did) when I didn't have time to stop at Think for coffee before work.
Speaking of Think, that's where I usually get my coffee in the mornings. It's a little more expensive than the slightly closer to work Bean but the coffee is way better (imho.) I also appreciate that they make a commitment to fair trade coffee, good treatment for their employees, donating to local nonprofits, AND composting.
Whenever I feel like I'm in Think too often, I go across the street to Paradis. Here she is, making her first appearance outside of the food!
While walking to get more coffee in Williamsburg with Greg recently ("We should drink SO MUCH COFFEE," I said before I almost started crying like 3 times. It was one of those manic days), I saw more sidewalk art:
Espresso at the folks' (for days when I need to get out of the house and get writing done in a quiet place but not have to PAY for coffee.)
ceramic classic NYC coffee cup mug an old, dear friend gifted a long time ago. I love it. Added soy milk to the espresso and drank far too quickly. I wanna figure out how to use that steaming arm, though, and make a really fancy cup!
Haha, the self-portrait you've all been waiting for. With a cup the size of my face.
This is what happs when you drink coffee and start zine notes: Lots of exclamation points.
Sorry I don't have any fancy latte art photos for you...or, really, any of the coffee itself. It's usually in to-go cups (as you've seen with my breakfast-at-desk shots) and not so photogenic. What can I say, New York is an over-caffeinated GO-GO-GO city!!!!!!
Tawk amongst yaselves! Feelings on cawffee? Any fancy drinks I should order? I actually got an Americano the other day and was swooshing around the city like I owned da joint.
Aaaaannnnd: Please watch this.
