Bein Hazmanim is coming.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

I personally enjoy their crushed ice lattes, and I tell them to blend it very well. If you buy a regular iced latte, you get like 2 ounces of latte and 14 of ice.
Lifehack:  at Starbucks ask for an iced coffee with ice on the side

You can go anywhere for iced. Black hot coffee is where they stand out with freshly roasted pour over coffee (why do they even call it french press?) Although I enjoyed it a little less today with the heat.
Ask them of they have anything roasted that day.

No coffee scent in libraries
+1 for the ambiance. Clifton if your going to work and Kennedy for meetings

"A French press, also known as a cafetière, cafetière à piston, caffettiera a stantuffo, press pot, coffee press, or coffee plunger, is a coffee brewing device"

I am aware. I use one every morning they coffee grounds sit in the water for a while then u press the filter down, forcing the coffee up. The store french press only brews pour over hence the irony.


Today they were using a Hario v60 ceramic

Yup, they have a few different beans, I'll always get the freshest. They're all delicious.

The barista mentioned that she knows the country where each of the beans come from besides the Italian.
Thought they were a blend of whatever was leftover "roasted very dark, almost burnt - like Starbucks" her words.
