New Year Coffee

So I made 2 New Year’s Resolutions this month – 1) shave my legs more often (probably TMI, but don’t judge me – 6 AM is not a good time to be holding a razor….), and 2) go to one new local coffee shop each month.  Don’t get me wrong – I do love a Starbucks and since they are on practically every street corner in NYC, they are easy to hit on the run.  But when I just want to go enjoy a cup of coffee, nothing beats a hole-in-the-wall coffeehouse.  There is definitely a different feel, an ambiance in the local shops that makes it not just about a quick cup of coffee to get you going, but about a whole social experience – the sitting and relaxing, enjoying the taste and smell.  It’s the appreciation of the atmosphere that separates a coffee drinker and a coffee lover.  Stay tuned for my first Coffeehouse Highlight!
