We heard good things about Good Company Doughnuts & Cafe, which recently opened a location in SW DC, and decided to try it out this morning instead of Dad's usual of The Wharf Starbucks.

Our Koffee Trail: Colada Shop

Date of Visit: July 20, 2024

Location: Colada Shop - The Wharf, Washington, DC

While in DC it's hard to not end up at Starbucks because it opens several hours earlier than the other coffeeshops, so we did go there earlier this week one morning when we did not have any decaf coffee to make on the boat. This morning to go for a walk with a purpose and get my second cup of the day, we went to Colada Shop.

Iced Cafe con Leche

I got an iced Cafe con Leche.

Our Koffee Trail: Bella Latte

Date of Visit: July 13, 2024

Location: Bella Latte, Spartanburg, SC

Started the day in Tennessee, but got on the road too early to try out any local coffeeshops. Actually, ended up with Starbucks for our first cup of the day, although if either of the nearby locations had opened earlier we would have done Black Rifle Coffee. Spartanburg was a good time for another coffee and also got kolache for breakfast from a Shipley Donuts nearby.

Our Koffee Trail: Sugar & Rhyme

Date of Visit: July 12, 2024

Location: Sugar & Rhyme, Elgin, IL

This morning we made a detour through Elgin for our first cup of coffee and breakfast to start our driving day. I thought the nav said it was a 30 minute detour, but I think I misread it was actually 30 minutes from where we were and it was only a 10-15 minute detour. Either way, it was a worthwhile detour.

Chocolate Cashew Latte

I had a Chocolate Cashew Latte.

Chili Chocolate Latte and Monkey Bread

Dad had a Chili Chocolate Latte and we both had monkey bread, which they make from their croissant dough. Also, their syrups are house made.

Our Koffee Trail: Toccoa Coffee

Date of Visit: July 9, 2024

Location: Toccoa Coffee, Granger, IN

Originally planned to try out another coffeeshop in Niles, MI, but the nav did not end up taking us that way to Illinois. Searching along the route, I noticed Toccoa Coffee, which sounded familiar to me probably from listening to the local radio station every Sunday morning.

My Butterscotch Latte

I had a Butterscotch Latte.

Decaf Twilight bag on table

We also got a bag of their Decaf Twilight coffee beans.

Location: Savage Bean Coffee, Cassopolis, MI

Still without water and waiting for the cement to dry to be able to turn new pump on, Dad and I went in to Cassopolis for breakfast (coffee and muffins from Savage Bean Coffee and also got blueberry shakes from The Twirl nearby for me and Nora)

Coffee and Muffins

I got a Maple Spice Latte and Dad got a dark roast coffee.

Our Koffee Trail: 2nd & Main Coffeehouse

2nd & Main Coffeehouse building

Date of Visit: July 5, 2024

Location: 2nd & Main Coffeehouse, Niles, MI

We were trying not to waste too much time when we went to town to figure out how to fix the boat registration because we were also mid-well pump replacement and the others were waiting on us to also come back with a part to continue that and get water back to the cottage. Thus, we did not plan to go to a coffeeshop, but it was right across the street from the registration place and with no water back at the cottage it seemed a good time to also use a bathroom without having to haul water up from the lake to flush.

I got an Iced Lavender Latte.

Miel from 2nd & Main Coffeehouse

Dad got a Miel.

Our Koffee Trail: Java Drip Coffee

Date of Visit: June 29, 2024

Location: Java Drip Coffee, Gallup, NM

Last night we noticed a coffeeshop named Thanx a Latte when exploring Holbrook, Arizona, where we stayed the night. We considered going there before hitting the road this morning, but it was not open on the weekend. In searching where we could go instead, I found Java Drip Coffee in Gallup.

Java Drip Coffee building

When I showed Dad the picture of the place, he called it the coffee shack. It is a good description, but it is also a good design for a small drive through place, especially since it was set up to have a window on each side so could take the order on one side while finishing up the other side's order.

Java Drip Coffee Menu

The menu has a lot of variety. When we were stopping, Mik said he did not want anything, but then he saw the menu and decided he needed to try something, too.

Me with my latte

I had a Toasted Marshmallow Latte.

Mom had an Iced Black & White Mocha.

Our Koffee Trail: Espresso Art Cafe

 

Date of Visit: June 22, 2024

Location: Espresso Art Cafe, Tucson, AZ

Dad and I ended up Espresso Art Cafe when our search for U of A basketball shorts for Mik was unsuccessful at the U of A bookstore and the sports store on University was not quite open when we got there. To kill time until the store opened, we stopped in the nearby Espresso Art Cafe.

I had an Iced Latte. Dad had a Horchata.

After a short morning hike in Sabino Canyon, Dad and I went to Le Buzz, which he used to go to when biking Mount Lemmon.

Our Koffee Trail: Cafe Maggie

Date of Visit: June 21, 2024

Location: Cafe Maggie, Tucson, AZ

Cafe Maggie is what used to be Epic Cafe when we lived in Tucson. It was one of Mik's favorite places to go in our neighborhood. Thus, when visiting Tucson for his 30th birthday, it was a must to stop in.

My coffee cup

Mom, Mik, and I got Peanut Butter Mochas, which back in 2020 and Dad and I were in town and found Epic closed were afraid would no longer be available. We later learned they just went under a change in ownership and name, but kept the menu...or at least our favorite stayed!

Dad and I with our coffees

Dad got a Dirty Horchata.

Our Koffee Trail: Aspen Coffee

Aspen Coffee building

Date of Visit: June 19, 2024

Location: Aspen Coffee, Edmond, OK

We had skipped getting any coffee earlier this day because after having to start our day with an unplanned oil change we did not want to waste any more time getting on the road and hitting Pops. After we were back on the road from Pops, we decided to find whatever was the closest coffee shop without going off the route to Tucson. We actually thought we'd probably end up at Starbucks, but Apsen Coffee ended up being the closest and no more of a detour than a usual food or gas stop off an exit.

I had a Vanilla Cinnamon Iced Latte.

Our Koffee Trail: Hidden Springs Java

Hidden Springs Java building 

Date of Visit: June 16, 2024

Location: Hidden Springs Java, Medora, ND

Hidden Springs Java is "hidden" inside the Mercantile building in Medora. We stopped in to get some coffee to drink while we walked around Medora while waiting for the Theodore Roosevelt Visitor Center to be open to get our park stamp before a quick round of mini golf at Little Bully Pulpit Mini Golf.

Holding my cup

I had a Cafe Miel.

Our Koffee Trail: Serendipity Coffee Drive-thru

Date of Visit: June 15, 2024

Location: Serendipity Coffee Drive-thru, Dickinson, ND

While visiting Medora, ND, we stayed in Dickinson, ND as it was much cheaper than the lodging in Medora. On the way to the Theodore Roosevelt National Park and Medora the first day, we stopped at Serendipity Coffee Drive-thru.

My lavender honey latte

I enjoyed a Lavender Honey Latte.

Danke sticker on my latte

We thought it was interesting that they used stickers instead of plastic stick stoppers.
