It was an honor to be interviewed by Custom Filterz for their blog. You can read the interview by clicking here. It was fun to talk about my current favorite social media platform and how it applies to my business and personal life.
Because I talk about it, but it wasn’t included in the post, I give you a sample of my daily coffee snap that I’ve become known for.
I’d love for you to join the fun and follow me on snapchat!
While I was in Texas this past week, I got a chance to have coffee at RE:defined Coffee House. It was extra special since I planned to meet a friend from snapchat.
I walked in and immediately liked the vibe. There were comfy couches and chairs to sit in and cool things to look at on the wall.
Looking up was fun, too, as it was still decorated for the Christmas holiday and it was pretty.
I had a cup of brewed coffee. I meant to go back and ask again what kind it was. It was their coffee of the day and all I can remember is that it was a medium roast from Central America. It was good with citrus and chocolate notes.
They had a goodie case but I didn’t partake. I probably should have because I drank more coffee that day than I have in a long time!
The best part is that I met my friend, Amanda (ARay), from Snapchat.
We sat and talked like we had known each other forever. The best part of social media, in my opinion, is meeting IRL.
I will definitely stop by RE:defined Coffee House again when I’m in Grapevine!
I’m sitting here enjoying a cup of Fog Chaser by San Francisco Bay Gourmet Coffee. It’s tasty! Yesterday, I made it using my Aeropress. Today, I made it in the drip pot. I’m always surprised how you can get a different taste from the same coffee when making it using different methods.
Anyway, this coffee is good. Made from Arabica beands, it’s a lighter roast than I’m used to drinking but it has a nice, smooth taste. The first thing I did when I opened the bag (what I always do first) was smell the coffee. It wasn’t terribly strong but it smelled good. After pressing it, the resultant brew was a little light and I was afraid I wouldn’t like it.
The coffee has a nice flavor with the major notes being chocolate and nutty. It is definitely a contender for a middle of the day coffee for me. As a bonus, David liked it, too. 🙂
When I drove by Coffee Holic yesterday, I knew I was going to have to come back and visit. I’m in from out of town, working, and wasn’t familiar.
This morning I had the perfect opportunity. As I entered I saw that they have wifi which is always a plus. The first thing you see is a nice goodie case and I honed in on the Chocolate Almond Croissant. Almond Croissants are my favorite and after verifying they didn’t have plain ones, I ordered the chocolate version which she heated up for me. It was delicious!
I ordered brewed coffee and it was okay. Nothing spectacular, but drinkable. The total cost was under $5 which was pleasantly surprising.
Their menu is small but diverse with many options including smoothies, waffles, and sandwiches. Several choices of energy type bars are available for a portable option.
I’m glad I stopped in and if I return to Lewisville I’ll drop in again!
