JUST THE CAPPUCCINO FROTH. FOR YOUR WEEKEND.
Coffee & Reading the Morning Paper
HELLO LONG WEEKEND. This was a heavy week in the United States, so I am sending you all light and hope so that we can have the energy and good-will to effect change in our country. Take it easy and protect your family; I love the theory that love and change “starts at home.”
A few thoughts of the week:
- Reading: Brand New Italian Bar in Chevy Chase, with Espresso + Gelato! Opened May 25! Cash only, no tipping bar, with “breakfast pastries and quick caffeine throughout the day, along with panini and sandwich options during the afternoon and evening hours.” Lavazza coffee! Can’t wait to go. Check their Instagram.
- Current Chocolate Wish List:
- This bar: Ocumare Milk w/ Japanese Sea Salt & Nibs 🧂
- This gift box: Cocktail Truffle Collection 🍸
- This bar: Nordic Nature Black Currant 63% 🍒
- Another special one: Salted Licorice Caramel 🍮
- Something intriguing: Ceremonial Cacao – Water Blend 🌊
- A decadent truffle box: Dark Sea Salt Caramel Truffle Box 📦
- Watching: We’re still enjoying season 2 of Stanley Tucci’s Taste of Italy this week. Have you seen the show?
- Watching: Sea Otter Cam 🦦
- Listening: How to Avoid Burnout
- Earnest request: If you’re able and enjoy our writing/posts, please support us with a coffee. It means a lot to us 🙂 Thank you!!
Quote for the Weekend
Your Coffee Shop Outfit
A billowing cotton or linen shirt is perfect for the change of seasons. The weather is expected to be hot this weekend, so make sure that you hydrate! Enjoy 🙂
Absolutely love the feelings that this image evokes… springtime…adventure…nostalgia. Some whimsy. Happy weekend, coffee lovers.
Some Chocolate Dessert
- What can you make for friends this Memorial Day Weekend? Why not try one of these desserts, and/or some fresh fruit salad?! We also love a good fresh cut watermelon.
Have a lovely weekend, with a time cupsoul or two, of course. Take good care.
