Why I love coffee shops...

Coffee shops first became a thing for me when I would watch the cast of Friends meeting at Central Perk every week for 10 years.  I religiously watched Friends, I didn't miss an episode and have re watched the series probably over 100 times.  I'm not obsessed or anything but I didn't have cable for a good 6 years.  Maybe that's why I find coffee shops so comforting?  They definitely exude a home like ambiance that makes you want to stay.  

 

In real life, my coffee journey didn't start that long ago.  

 

I used to be a tea gal then I graduated to shots of espresso before intense workouts.  I didn't start really enjoying coffee and espresso based beverages until last year when I went to Italy.  Since then I've turned into quite the connoisseur, or at least I'd like to think I have.  I've taken a couple of coffee 101 courses and am perfecting my latte art skills.  Maybe one day I will have my own little shop and master my latte art but in the meantime I will continue to make my way around various cities exploring new coffee shops.
