an espresso lover's blog

Sunday, July 04, 2004

A coffeegeek forum member ("Bradinvancouver") has posted pics (with commentaries) from an espresso trek he and his friends did between Vancouver and Seattle some days ago.

It really strikes me how cosy and homely many of the north american coffee bars look. I would love to hang out in one of those big chairs! (photo #96). Here in the nordic countries we have a thing for minimalistic design. It can be superb when done right, taking care to balance the minimalistic and organic, but often you get this sterile and inpersonal feeling.

And Hines, wow, that looks like hanging out at a friends house (a coffee nut - friend's house), and I bet it feels like that too! I just *have to* visit that place sometime.
