For our quick coffee-to-go runs in the morning, we would go to this shop just around the corner from our Paris apartment. We found that Parisians aren’t big on multi-tasking, which is actually something that I’m personally working on now that we’ve been back. (More on that to come!) What that means for coffee, though, is that it’s a lot more common to sit down and enjoy a cappuccino or espresso, rather than grab your coffee and run. A much slower pace of life that was thoroughly enjoyed and is definitely missed now that we’re back in NYC. However, when it comes to coffee, New Yorkers don’t f*ck around. We need coffee before we get to where we are going for breakfast. And then obviously during breakfast. And probably again after breakfast. So naturally, we found a coffee-to-go shop to get our morning fix while we were getting ready and planning our day.
Actually, this past weekend I read a little sign that said New Yorkers consume SEVEN TIMES more coffee than the average American. I believe it! Fun Fact: I swear New York has the best sidewalk chalkboards around. There are always funny expressions, quotes, or little factoids that have me chuckling as I walk past. I would have taken a photo of the sign, but ya know — no phone. Oh, and a little update on that — My new one finally came yesterday! I’m back on the map. Now I just need my new case to get delivered!
