Lets have a little FUN…
There are a few things I favor:
- Purple – the color.
- International travel.
- Good community stewardship.
- Courage in creativity.
- Newly roasted, freshly ground coffee.
Wanna make me really happy??
Bring me a latte!
Here’s how I like it:
- 16 ounces.
- Light foam.
- Extra hot (about 170F degrees).
- Bonus points if it comes with a low-sugar biscotti NOT covered in chocolate.
This is my vice. I even have a Coffee Shop Finder app on my Android phone. Starbucks and Caribou Coffee are great, but I really love exploring local “mom & pop” shops!
Yesterday afternoon when a latte would have hit the spot, my Twitter stream included a link to an article on Latte Art. So of course, I clicked…
A delightful read — I learned all about a little coffee shop in Maine that “handles coffee like the gift it is,” brewing only by manual methods. Anne, one of their brand ambassadors – a previous Barista – shared her enthusiasm and methodology of latte art.
I was impressed by their Thursday Night Throwdown — a latte art championship where registration fees are donated to Coffee Kids, a non-profit organization that works to improve the lives of coffee-farming families. The food economy is a big focus in my local area, so I appreciated the words about food crops touching many people from farmer to server. The same with coffee!
Watch a quick video – See Anne describe that there’s a story in every cup.
Did you see the tulip? And with soy milk, no less! (Now I need to find a latte artist near me…)
