I was excited when Janice from Kitchen Heals Soul let me know that the indie coffee passport had arrived in town. I’m always wanting to try new places (even if perhaps I don’t always have the time), and this seems like an affordable and fun way to check out some of this town’s growing coffee culture.
It’s a pretty simple, yet fun concept – you buy the passport for $22, and there are 18 participating coffee shops where you can choose from a unique list of 5 drinks. Choose the drink, and get your passport stamped. You have between April 1 – October 31, 2013 to visit them all.
It’s a cool idea, because it will allow patrons to check out some independent coffee shops they might not have otherwise, and the price is right. The unique drinks are pretty standard coffee fair as far as I can tell – an espresso, cappucino, latte, filter coffee, tea, etc. I have no problem with that. A whipped caramel latté fan – I am not.
Some of the cafés which I know and enjoy include Brooklyn Café (post coming soon), Chez Boris, and Café Plume. I was however a bit disappointed to see some of our city’s must try café’s not on the list. But, I can’t wait to check out the rest!
