Simply, one of the best things about being in Seattle is the coffee know-how of those who work in coffee shops. Back home, the closest coffee shop to my office is conveniently across the street. Inconveniently, I dislike Starbucks drip coffee, and this particular store’s baristas are among the more incompetent that I’ve experienced.
Here, I’ve been thrilled that every barista not only knows what a “short” is but also is in stock of short disposable cups. I know, I know…what was I doing without a reusable travel mug? Well, I’d been looking for the right one: a mix of utilitarian and individualism. Something that said me.
Last week, I found my travel mug in Herkimer Coffee. It’s a short size! They really exist! Okay, you can stop with the short jokes now.
