Intelligentsia coffee shop at the Monadnock building. This is the creme de la creme for coffee. period.
Two hour drive into the city today to run some errands with the father-in-law. After all the driving and all the hassle we accomplished nothing and returned to the land of corn tired and cranky. The best part of the day was making out to my favorite coffee shop in the world: Intelligentsia. I ordered a large Latte and also brought back home 2 lbs of the Black Cat Organic Espresso. My whole car smelleed like coffee. We stopped in little italy for lunch and had some pizza and salad at Pompei, then stopped at the italian deli for another cup of coffee. I arrived home beat after totalling 160 mile on the Pantani-mobile but it sure was a relief to go down there and see something different. The weather forecast for Trans Iowa seems favorable and I just hope it stays like that. I really plan on finishing this year. I know, I know, I have been writing about this for months.
