putting a freeze on summer

Yesterday I tried out a new coffee shop.

New to me, not new to town.

I’ve been loyal to The Bean Cycle since we moved here.  I love their iced coffee, fresh juice, cozy atmosphere, delicious specialty coffee drinks, and non-profit bookstore.

Yesterday I went to Everyday Joe’s.  It’s less than a mile away, and somewhere I’ve been meaning to check out for awhile.  Our internet was out yesterday, so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to check it out.

Can I just say, I’ve found a new love?

  • They use a drip-style coffee brewing method.  Each cup is brewed individually and they even have 2 different methods you can pick from.
  • It’s a non-profit + volunteer run!! 
  • They serve gigantic cappuccinos for $2.50.
  • They drip your coffee into a recycled milk jug!
  • Their water glasses + iced coffee/tea glasses are Ball jars.  [Jar obsessed over here.]

I chose the drip-brew method that yielded a thicker, richer flavor.  I knew it would have me hopped up all morning, so I asked for 1/2 caf + 1/2 decaf beans.

The perfect pour.

I would say the one downfall to this coffee shop, is that the building is gigantic and it doesn’t have that cozy, coffee shop feel, that I love.

But that won’t stop me from coming back for more!

Moving on to this morning…

Come mid-winter, Kelsey and I are going to be 2 happy ladies.

Because we’re freezing our favorite part of summer.

66 organic peaches to be exact.

For $22, total!!  Our favorite peach stand discounts their bruised peaches 50% off.  This was a 20lb box.  We basically paid $1 for 3 peaches x 11, for each of us.

The best part?  These peaches don’t have a single bruise or hole in them.  They’re just a different variety that grew smaller this year, so they were discounting them.

Sounds good to me!

So, while summer may be nearing it’s end, we at least will be able to hold onto it for a little longer.

A few other odds + ends from the day.

I’m thinking of making a tomatillo peach salsa…

You will most definitely be made aware if I do!

Enjoy the day!
