A Corner View - Coffee





My camera is still at the camera hospital in Sydney, so again these are archived photos from my trip to the US late last year where I enjoyed many cups of coffee:
  1. Waiting for coffee at Quiet Storm in Pittsburgh
  2. Coffee, orangina and some potato wedges with a TLT (Tempeh, Lettuce & Tomato) at Grapefruit Moon in Toronto
  3. Coffee at Twede's Cafe (the Double R Diner in Twin Peaks) in North Bend, Washington State
In response to Jane's questions regarding coffee here in Melbourne:

How do you say "two coffees with milk" in your corner?

"Two xxxxx thanks" (depending on what sort of coffee you want), or if it is my usual weekday morning (D'Marcos) "my usual thanks" (soy latte with one sugar).

What are the most popular ways to drink coffee?

Seems to be a latte or flat white.

How do you take your coffee?

With one sugar, and the milk is always soy as I am a vegan.

French press, percolator, espresso, or other?

Caffe latte.

Are you a dunker?

No, I don't like crumbs in my coffee : )

What was the funniest topic of conversation over a recent cup of coffee?

Discussing with a friend which character we wish we were and which character we really would be from Seinfeld. I wish I was Elaine, but really I think I would be George : )

Check out these great corner view bloggers hyped up on caffeine:

Hope your camera gets out of camera hospital soon.
