More reviews to come...

The demands of day job and family life have been such that I haven't been able to lounge, lizard-like at my favorite haunts, much less visit new places to review. I hope to have some new postings by early next week. Particularly now that coffee is good for me.

In the meantime, I'm can't recommend enough the book I'm currently reading... "The Devil's Cup", which journals my favorite vice's humble beginings in Ethiopia to it's subsequent virus-like domination of Europe, to it's maltreatment in the states, "stewing" in roadside diners across the country -- to it's current redeption, which the author, a sort of bohemian Indiana Jones, begrudgingly attributes (at least in part) to Starbucks.

His round the world adventure makes the pre-ground, single pot, vacuumed packed Starbucks stewing in the breakroom that I'm drinking from my Pablo's travel mug (decorated w/ an Ink! Coffee sticker) seem that much more bland. Gotta hit some new java joints this weekend!
