Last weekend I went on the Charlotte Coffee Crawl, a tour that takes you to 10 cafes in two days and leaves you adequately wired as a result.
You can read my over-caffeinated play-by-play on CharlotteFive. Here, I just wanted to hit some high points.
My morning started with breakfast with Nick at Luna’s. I am incapable of ordering anything but the Biblical Breakfast, which is assorted toasted cranberry bread topped with almond butter, peanut butter and coconut butter. So that’s what I got.
From there it was off to Boquete to pick up my agenda for the crawl.
Stops included: Smelly Cat, Daily Press, Ozpresso, Kenilworth Espresso, Crown Station, Sunflour Bakery (featuring Pure Intentions Coffee), Eagle Speak, Mugs and Not Just Coffee. Here were some of my favorites:
Smelly Cat and their salty chocolate cookies
Daily Press and their chem lab set up
Ozpresso and their Aussie cool
Pure Intentions at Sunflour and their pastry + coffee tasting flight
Not Just Coffee and their vibe
Would you go to 10 cafes in two days? I actually fell asleep at 9p on day one like I’d had no coffee at all but was HYPED UP on day 2 and couldn’t stop moving.
