    Coffee

    Anyone?

    Big thin here. No bars of course so folks go sit and hang and drunk coffee. Coffee shop upon coffee shop up and down the streets
    Starbucks here- including one of 8 Mookie here that is some special Starbucks. Know where it is but haven't been.
    Many of the London franchises... caribou. Costa.

    Mookie has become a fab of the flat white.

    Hung at a Turkish franchise that's been popping up yesterday. Good stuff.

    Luckily too it is a faux pas to bring a check. Like one insulting the customer. So once you sit you have a room for the night, so to speak.

    They have a Caribou, the MN based coffee chain? Surprising! But also my favorite.

    Yup. Very good.

    Odd as well (since this is such an obese country) is they don't have cream. Skim or 'full fat milk is available.

    Mookie always used cream at Dunkin so this has taken some getting used to

    Caribou is the best among the big chains. Charbucks is passable.

    Had Caribou once. Immediately wished it would come to West Michigan.

    Locally, I have Lemonjello's and Simpatico.

    Re: Coffee

    I tried Whiskey Coffee last week. The beans are aged in whiskey barrels with whiskey added, then the alcohol evaporates later, but the flavor is still there. It was very good.

    I love coffee, but I don't really go to coffee shops unless I'm out of town.

    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Re: Coffee

    never thought mookie would drink iced coffee black. but the lack of cream has pushed this upon him--and it's not bad.

    plain milk isn't thick enough and just gives it a watered down taste to him.
