caffeine

Let it be sounded from every bell tower, muezzin, and coca plantation:
There are NO decent coffee shops within easy walking distance of 25 Beacon Street and 6 Mt. Vernon Pl. Period. End of bloody statement.

I have mentioned places I’ve eaten (and gotten coffee) at on this blog before, but not created a section for it. So here it is.

I’m in Ft. Wayne Indiana at the moment. I won’t be straying far from the hotel, so I can only assume the only coffee I’ll get here is at $St$. Yuck. However, on the way I stopped in Coldwater, Michigan, ostensibly to get fuel for Myself and the vehicle. About 2 miles off I-69 in the heart of the historic downtown, is the North Woods Coffee Co. They use $tar$peak, ie Tall-Grande-Venti. I have the same attitude towords such nonsense as Dora. Despite that however, they make good lattes, and have a good atmosphere. They also sell lots of kitchen and decorative goods. WiFi status is unknown, as I was on the run, and will be again tomorrow.

I like coffee. My friends, family and compatriots know this. I also have a bit of an aversion to the major corporate structures of the United States. I find it morally more appealing to support my local buisness owner.
That’s where Delocator comes in. Type in your zip code, and it gives you a listing of all the independant coffee shops in that area. It’s remarkably up to date too. It has the newest shops inn Ypsilanti added already.
I prefer Bombadill’s Neighborhood Coffee House myself, where I am now.
Support your local buisness owners, and the local buisness owners in the towns you visit for work and pleasure.
