Last week, at the Think Coffee near Union Square (to-die-for grilled cheese sandwiches by the way), this guy at the table over says to me, "You're the cheshire smile from flickr." I was completely flabbergasted and probably grinned and nodded like an idiot. I suppose it is a small world though! Nonetheless, I was really excited to meet a flickr contact by chance and not through a planned meet-up. Turns out he is a big java junkie as well, and this week we headed to Blue Bottle Coffee in Brooklyn to chat more about photography and coffee and everything in between. This place is like nothing else I've seen in the city. The New Orleans iced coffee I had almost tasted like an espresso drink. Very velvety, comforting, but with a huge kick to it.
Sure, it's a little out of the way, but I will go pretty great lengths for great coffee. Plus, I've crossed off another on the NY Times list, yay.
