Good afternoon, my fellow west-coasters! I recently made the move, well 4 day and 3 night nightmare of a drive, from my beloved home on the east coast – Georgia – to my new home in California. After the initial shock wore off, and I was through with gas station coffee, and realized to my dismay that I had absolutely no idea where my coffee machine or French Press was packed – I hopped in the car and decided enough was enough. I flipped on my trusty GPS and quickly searched for the closest Starbucks in my area (there are over 5 of them within 2 miles of me), but lo and behold tucked in between all the Starbucks listings, what do I find? An ABUNDANCE of other coffee shops, some local, some west coast chains – and all calling my name! Of course, we have fantastic local coffee houses in Atlanta, but these are all new to me!
Soooo, of course I have to try them all now. Well, at least the ones within driving distance. And of course I have to review them! How else will my Georgia folks know what they’re missing?
Bear with me west-coasters – this southern gal is about to do some serious coffee drinking here.
