My 5th coffeeneuring ride was to the Donut King at Westfield Kotara where I met my parents for coffee. Instead of my usual soy latte I had a cappuccino and am so glad I did, if just for the wonderful artwork on it!
Date: Monday 11th November, Ride distance: 3 miles
My 5th ride was to Gloria Jeans on Beaumont St, returning from an errand to Maryville. I like the location and atmosphere at this GJ’s but not usually the coffee; this time, however, the soy latte was wonderful, maybe because I ordered half strength…Date: Wednesday 13th November, Distance: 3 miles
My final ride marked a move away from multinational coffee houses to the local III Beans on Beaumont St (that’s “3 Beans”, but spelt more trendily).See those market umbrellas? that’s where I sat, a lovely location on a sunny day …The table decor there was interesting, consisting of jars of dried herbs and flowers and oils. The coffee (soy latte) looked good but unfortunately was only lukewarm and I bolted it down so quickly I don’t even remember what it tasted like!
Date: Friday 15th November Distance: 2 miles
Total distance: 23 miles
Part of the guidelines is to recommend a good coffee shop. As per the rules, I have visited 7 for this comp, all of which I have been to before many times. All have their different attributes, Source for location, right beside Throsby Creek, though it does not have the best coffee. Overall, I would have to say that Gloria Jeans has won this time, though I don’t usually like the coffee there, maybe they have a new barista!
This marks the final coffeeneuring post for me, thanks to MG for hosting, I will be submitting my paper work tonight!
