Tired of the grab-and-go coffee chains that have riddled Phoenix?  Check out my favorite West Valley options that serve a relaxing alternative to the ordinary cup of jo. Bad Ass coffee Let’s be honest … don’t you just love this name?  It’s a real departure from any java place I’ve been to.  With its laid-back atmosphere, overly friendly staff and Hawaiian motif, Bad Ass coffee (map) serves amazing Kona coffee, plain and simple.  You feel as if you’re on Waikiki Beach right here in...

Kona Coffee Cultural Festival

Kona Coffee Cultural Festival
The Kona coffee Cultural Festival celebrates its 40th anniversary this year from November 5-14, 2010. It honors the multi-ethnic heritage of the pioneers, farmers and artisans of the brew on the Big Island of Hawaii. The first coffee was planted in Kona (map) by missionary Samuel Ruggles in 1828 or 1829. These first arabica trees were taken from cuttings planted on Oahu a few years earlier. Today many Kona farmers can lay claim to being fifth generation coffee farmers. Some of the 50 different events...

Inside Dublin: Where to Find a Good Cappuccino

Inside Dublin: Where to Find a Good Cappuccino
In a city of tea drinkers, there are many places that massacre a cup of coffee. The milk is burnt. The coffee is bitter. The proportions are wrong. For some reason, there’s more cocoa powder on the top than there is espresso in the coffee. For an American with a love of a good cappuccino, this has been one of the challenges living in Dublin. In the last few years I’ve experienced a good deal of trial and error. I’ve learned which places to avoid, what cafes produce a dependable...

Going against the Grind at the Grind House

Going against the Grind at the Grind House
... seems to have shut off their Wifi and hoping nobody notices.  (I did.)  As we know I’m very impartial to Artisan Roast who has the best coffee in Edinburgh, but there’s a new game in town and I’m liking what they’ve got on offer:  The Grind House Busy Location The Grind House is in the Old Town/Newington area, on Nicholson Street just south of the Tesco.  It’s within earshot of three other major coffeehouses:  Starbucks, Beanscene, and Cafe Kilimanjaro.  Those...

Great Edinburgh Breakfasts: Cafe Truva

Great Edinburgh Breakfasts:  Cafe Truva
... pretty much all day:  eggs, sausage, feta cheese, cucumbers, with a side of toast and jam.  It is truly yummy-fantastic and just under £10 with a coffee or tea.  You can choose to have a traditional Turkish coffee (pictured above) or just order a white or black coffee. As you walk in, to the left there’s a cake display with loads of treats and sweets for your temptation.  If you happen to be just walking by and want a  little sugar boost for the road, you can just pop in and grab something...

Almost Anything Can Be Delivered At Your Door In Buenos Aires

Almost Anything Can Be Delivered At Your Door In Buenos Aires
... I am not just talking about your everyday normal delivery like pizzas or empanadas, I mean everything. Say you are at home and you want a cup of coffee, just call your friendly café. They will send a waiter to your door with a cup of coffee and saucer on their tray. You can add a half dozen medialunas (croissants) to go  with you coffee. Then, let’s say at noon you get the munchies, well, the list of options is endless. From local food to Chinese to Arabic to even McDonald’s (yes,...

A North Phoenix Hangout for Everybody

My view from the outside deck of C4 Named the “Best coffeehouse & Best Wine Bar 2008″ by Best of Greater Phoenix, the Cave Creek coffee Company & Wine Bar known as C4 is a great spot for morning coffee, afternoon lunch and late night wine and martinis. They have it all! A favorite hang-out of mine, I’ve always been impressed by the eclectic crowd it attracts. Even though it can be a stopping point for many motorcycle riders in the early morning, I’ve also seen everything...

Best Coffee in Edinburgh: Artisan Roast

Where is the best coffee in Edinburgh? Artisan Roast. Artisan roast is one of the only artisal coffeehouses in Edinburgh.  It’s such a surreal experience and a must-do for any caffeine-lover visiting Edinburgh.  Some of the reasons I love Artisan Roast include: The Back Room. There’s a back room hidden away, with loads of pillows and strange artwork on the walls.  It’s like stepping into the looking glass into another world.  Don’t forget to look up at the lights –...

Cup of Joe? Real Coffee Roaster in the Raval

coffee is an interesting product in Barcelona because while everyone seems to be drinking it all day long, there isn’t much in the way of gourmet coffee culture. People tend to buy relatively cheap coffee at the store which is mass produced and you can pretty much forget about organic or fair-trade coffee altogether. With the exception of (gasp) Starbucks, most cafes in the city don’t seem to give a hoot where their beans come from or who picked them. With this ‘who cares’ attitude, it’s...

Coffee & Travel at C & P Coffee in West Seattle

Seattle and coffee just seem to go together, but it’s not all chain stores and cookie cutter coffee shops. Last night, I had the opportunity to check out C & P coffee Company in West Seattle.  As your driving down California Avenue, you’ll have to pay attention, or you might drive right on by C & P.  It’s in a 1907 Craftsman style house and blends into the neighborhood making them a good neighbor as well as a good coffee shop. C & P serves the expected coffee drinks,...

Cafe Jasmin

... you taste that “grandmother’s love” ingredient. The wait staff is friendly and prompt as they use large, copper cappuccino and coffee machines, which simply add to the overall ambiance. Flying solo? No need to worry, grab a book or simply people watch out the window, albeit there won’t be too many walking past as it’s pretty residential. Yet, you can admire the typical German architecture of the surrounding buildings, all painted shades of blue, pink or yellow. This charming,...
