The State of The United States

Am starting to look for independent coffee shops
worth looking into on some upcoming road trips.

Will be starting in NE Indiana, and making our

way down through TN, to SC.

If anyone out there has suggestions,

let me know, and we'll post reviews

either along the way, or compile the

photos and post on our return.

Thanks in advance!

= Cheers! CM

Remembering Paul Kantner

I last saw Paul Kantner 2 yrs ago on a visit with my family.

While working at the SFNA, I'd see him everyday,
with his espresso, NYT and his smokes.

And so it goes

On back of a cover to a vintage
Colliers Encyclopedia -

I orchestrate my mornings

 to the tune of coffee.

The Observatory

Recycled, vintage postcard.

He was my cream, and I was his coffee –

   And when you poured us together,

          it was something.

now until fall.

Dare To Be Yourself # 62

Creativity can solve almost any problem.

The creative act,

the defeat of habit by originality

overcomes everything.

Into The New Year

A leaf fluttered in through the window this morning,

as if supported by the rays of the sun,

a bird settled on the fire escape,

joy in the task of coffee,

joy accompanied me as I walked.

End Of 2014

I'd rather take coffee,

than compliments just now.

Jiva Coffee Cubes

I was recently sent this batch of
Jiva Coffee Cubes to try.

Since we are always curious about
anything coffee, we were pleasantly
surprised by this product from a
couple of young folks in Florida,
who started with a Kickstarter
funding project.

Forget SB's Via, if you want instant,
for camping or traveling, you can't
go wrong with these - some hot
water and you're off.

They are made with Colombian coffee,
and unrefined cane sugar.

We weren't able to try any of the other
products to compare (strong black)
might fit our tastes better and hope to
try that at some point soon.

They also offer flavored coffee cubes,
chocolate and lemonade.

Green tea is soon to be offered
and would look forward to trying
that one also.

Check out Jiva Coffee Cubes on FB,
check out their website here:

Jiva Coffee Cubes

and if you do try them out,
they have small packets of
4 cubes for $5.00 in order
to decide if it's what
would suit you.

Try them out and let them know
where you heard about them.
