921-925. insight full

This was my second visit to Insight Coffee in Sacramento and Steve’s first. The best cappuccino I have had in a long time. Maybe ever. In fact, I am still thinking about it.  Insight is everything I love in a coffee house…light, friendly, enough tables for conversation (and enough space between the tables, that conversation is possible).  And really great coffee. Really. Great. It’s at 8th and S. If you’re in town, stop by.

And a bonus set…

And now for a few cups I have been saving just for you, on just this day, at just this moment. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for playing along with my coffee lovefest this year. We’re almost at the end of the road cup, you know!

800. will work for lattes

Brooke Appler, Oakland CA.

Can we get a “woot” for coffee cup number 800? This lovely photo is courtesy of one of our most awesome caffeinated contributors, Brooke Appler. Last year Brooke did these sweet drawings at one of her favorite coffee houses, subrosa. The owner just published them as postcards, for sale with your latte…how cool is that? Here’s the inspiration for the drawing, coffee cup number 226 (that seems so long ago…574 cups ago).

Brooke’s illustration blog Miss U, Love U, and her Etsy shop is Team Blue Bicycle. And of course, her Flickr photostream is here and her  portfolio here.

There’s still plenty of time to join the fun…200 more cups, room for all of you to join in (and thanks to all of you who helped drink and document the first 800 cups!).

763. afternoon ritual

Pour over at Ritual Coffee in the Oxbow Market, Napa CA. I am a milk-in-my-coffee kind of gal, and this is the first time I have loved black coffee. Loved. Not that it had anything to do with the previous four hours of wine tasting.

Kate and I went into Sacramento yesterday afternoon to check out the new studio. We stopped by Temple Coffee and sat outside in the winter sunshine. Perfect.
