Cafes & Coffee

People start early in this town. This requires coffee.

It’s been a while since I’ve seen an early-start city like this. Traffic was definitely flowing at 6:30am and by 7:30am it was moving slow from congestion. People are at work by 8am. This makes for a long day if… Continue Reading →

I Will Find Good Coffee in Omaha! (Part 1)

Before even hitting the ground in Omaha, I’d been told repeatedly that the city has one of the best foodie scenes in North America. The internet writes about it. Yelp talks about it. People are constantly telling me that the… Continue Reading →

The Cafes of Route 66 (and Beyond)

You could eat your way across America on Route 66 using just 1950s cafes. I’m sure it’s been done many times over. There’s probably guide books, TV shows, and websites based on just this. For me, I had no map… Continue Reading →

Summer of Chaos: Week 6

Week 6 touches 5 cities: Marina dey Rey, Venice, Montreal, Halifax, and Los Angeles… and I joke that it’s the third time La Niña has been in Montreal this year. That’s when it hit me that before the summer is… Continue Reading →

Les Moulins

The word moulin contextually translates to windmill in English even though the “official” translation of moulin is mill. It’s likely that at some point you’ve all discovered this French word through art, literature, theatre, or movies. The most known example… Continue Reading →

Gelling, Coffee, and Snow

I got very little sleep before Day 3. It seems that being at a swim meet dredges up a lot of old swimming anxiety for me. Whatever. Sleep is overrated. The day started at 5am with hair gelling. This is… Continue Reading →

Hipster Coffee and that Raw Thing

When I first started commuting to Hollywood, I was told that there are no good restaurants anywhere in Hollywood. Now, with a few weeks under my belt, I somewhat disagree with this statement. With common foods like Thai and Sushi… Continue Reading →

Colombian Coffee

Colombia is known to have some of the best coffee in the world and for farmers and sellers this is good news; coffee is an extremely stable plant and will always sell. Coffee farms dot the countryside and are so… Continue Reading →

Undercover Baking Agency

Originally, I was going to write a post about how fantastic the foodie scene is in Santa Rosa: rich with traditional breakfasts, gf friendly restaurants (even Italian), cute little cafes, and how there’s a feeling that eating out is meant… Continue Reading →

Plymouth Cafes

We really enjoyed Plymouth and unlike other towns around Boston (e.g. Salem), the place doesn’t completely shut down for the winter. Tourist season starts earlier than most along the coast: on March 15. In general, we found the people here… Continue Reading →

Gregory’s Coffee

At Gregorys, we believe that respect for our coffee and respect for our customers go hand in hand. So we take freshly roasted beans grown by skilled, dedicated farmers all over the world and prepare them for you in a… Continue Reading →

Stumptown Coffee Roasters

For those of you who don’t know me… or what I do for a living, I *essentially* analyze engineering practices and help businesses improve in areas like customer design, customer interactions, and help them get closer to customer feedback and… Continue Reading →
