545. dino coffee

Christy, Aka, Urban Muser, NYC.

Christy blogs at Urban Muser and Mortal Muses. And she has a new project that I am especially excited about, Smile at a  Stranger. Christy is leaving notes, encouraging folks to, yup, you’ve had enough coffee to guess it…smile at a stranger today, and then taking photos of them and posting on her Posterous site. Hers are mostly in the subway, where we can all agree, a few smiles will go a long way. She’s invited us to join her on the journey of smile-makers, so of course, I did. I wrote about my first two days of delightful sneaky smile note-leaving on my other blog, Tour of No Regrets, here. Christy also has a Flickr group for the project, here.  I can tell you from experience, it’s a pretty fun project, even if you only do it once. However, I will warn you, it’s addictive. In fact, at this moment, I have three more notes in my purse, just waiting to discover their next assignment.

Oh, and how great is the baby dino?

537. enjoy the ride, and the coffee

This cup of coffee comes with a little self promotion. We (that would be Tackett+Barbaria, our design studio, in partnership with the City of Davis) just delivered our first set of diner mugs to the UC Davis Bookstore in Downtown Davis. Also available, a six-color t shirt with the same bicycle and clever tagline. And if you’re not a coffee drinker (but really, you wouldn’t be here unless you were), the mug is heavy enough to do double duty as your bodyguard.

523. coffee and chocolate

Charlie McDonald, Edmonton, Canada.

“Canada Post was on strike up to a couple of days ago, so I am currently out of my favorite coffee.   Our favorite micro roaster is back home in Thunder Bay. Its called The Great Northwest Coffee Company and they do the coffee up just right. Earlier today I purchase different kinds of coffee locally–in desperation, hoping it will tide us over till our new shipment arrives.I wanted to taste test the coffee tonight so I don’t spoil a nice morning before work.Well the first taste test was not promising.The dark roast tasted more burnt then anything.The second test result was more promising and should not ruin my morning. Oh and there are only three pieces of chocolate on that plate.  I guess I should not have eaten the rest. But it was cappuccino flavored.

327. quiet morning

Reina, Davis, CA.

Though we live in the same town, I only know Reina through blogging.  She’s a UC Davis grad student and I discovered her magic with the macro on a few Flickr groups. Luckily, she’s also a coffee lover and has been a regular caffeinated contributor. Her Flickr page is here.

307. morning colours

Kieran Hamilton, Edinburgh, Scotland.

Kieran showed up on coffee|served daily as a commenter, and when I checked his photo blog, Sumpix, I was blown away. I think I must add Scotland to my “new places to drink coffee and hang out in incredible, magical landscapes” list.
