Taboo, I gave a sign with those words to my brother and it is the truth. I did not dare talk to him in the morning until he had his coffee.

It like my coffee with:
French vanilla cream.
Regular cream and caramel flavoring
Like Bang, I like iced coffees
White chocolate mocha when I want to indulge
Espresso Shake - ice cream, a double shot of espresso blended with milk and topped with a caramel sauce.

The espresso shake I just tried this last weekend. It was so good. I was in seventh heaven. I could even have one of those in the winter. The best thing was I came upon the coffee place by accident, made wrong turn. I had been looking for a coffee place in that part of town. I know where I will be stopping every time I come to Reno.

Actually, I am glad we don't have one in town, because I probably would live at the place. I just get my fix when I go to Reno or one of the other local towns that has one. Tomorrow, after I go to the lab I will be heading straight towards the local coffee shop/bakery.

yeah that's another thing they are going to have.. baked goods, from what I understand. A local dj (from a local radio station) is the owner.. and they are going to have everything from biscotti to MUFFINS!

I love biscotti. I have not made any in a long time. The archaeologist that works at my ranger station is Italian and his wife makes biscotti all the time. Luckily, he knows I like it and always brings me some.
