Simply the Best

When I think of Springfield, Missouri this pops into my mind. I spent many a days and dollars here. This is one of my favorite coffeehouses I have visited so far. The staff is always friendly, the establishment is calm and clean, and the coffee (PT’s) is tasty every time. A visit to SGF always requires a stop into The Coffee Ethic. If you’re ever in the area, check them out. You won’t regret it.

Springfield has quite the coffee crowd considering the location and population. I found myself right at home here and the city still holds a small piece of my heart. One of my favorite things to do on a day off was sit in a cafe and enjoy some local Askinosie chocolate over a latte while reading. Heavenly!

What’s your favorite thing to drink?

One of the best ways to enjoy a coffee, pair it with a cupcake.

It’s about time that I devoted a post to my love of all things coffee. Coffee is my beverage of choice. I can drink it all day long, but try to stop my intake after eating dinner. I”ll have one cup after dinner with or for dessert . The best thing about coffee is connecting with friends over a cup.

I love coffee so much that I moved to coffee land, Colombia, for a year when the opportunity arose. I find it fascinating the different ways to prepare coffee and how different cultures take their coffee in different manners.

My favorite coffee shop I have ever visited was in Springfield, Missouri. The Coffee Ethic has a great atmosphere and my friends and I spent many hours here. I’ve always had a perfect cup of java from this shop. While in Springfield I had the chance to attend a caffeine crawl, which was amazing. If you love coffee and talking about the topic with others that share your love a crawl is a perfect event for you to attend.

Fall Favorites

Day 5 and I’m still talking about Fall. I hope the rest of the month goes by slowly so that I can savor my favorite time of year and before it gets too cold outside. One of my favorites, and the favorite of most other white girls like me, is the Pumpkin Spice Latte, commonly known as the PSL.
SONY DSCThere are many different ways to enjoy a PSL and from different coffee establishments but my top choice is pictured above. This morning the temperature dropped from the previous few days and there was a beautiful fall chill in the air. It was the perfect moment to enjoy my cup of joe. I took the opportunity to relish the quiet house (I live with a newborn) in the early morning and catch up on my reading from my TBRĀ (to be read) pile.

The holiday season brings many new flavors to the coffee scene and pumpkin is one I look forward to the minute it isn’t available anymore in the winter. I crave it all year long. One drink I haven’t had yet but is also equally held in high esteem is a spiced apple cider. Fall has the best drinks and food. What is on your fall must drink/eat list? S’mores, apple pie, PSL, cider, chai tea?
