I have always been partial to Fall. I am not sure if it’s relief from the heat, the marvelous colors or the dynamic smells but it is my absolute favorite season. And my absolute favorite thing to do in my absolute favorite season is people watching in any one of the thousands of coffee shops we have here in the Pacific NW. I just can not wait to bundle up in several soft layers, trek through the streets crunching fallen leaves, and sniff all the wonderful smells that roll in on Fall’s back. I can’t wait to feel the crisp air on my face as I plod along, looking in lighted store windows and searching out my end destination. I love that you can smell the coffee shop before you see it; the rich aroma of brewed coffee and cheer. And nothing compares to the first blast of warmth and laughter as you open the door to step in. Fall also brings with it unique coffee concoctions such as the peppermint chocolate frap, the pumpkin spiced mocha or the gingerbread latte. I cherish the few precious months I can order these delicious comfort drinks and it seems that during the cooler months my appetite for coffee is insatiable! This is why I was so excited for the What’s Brewing Coffee Tower! Now I can have delicious coffee at home and to top if off this gift contains my FAVORITE cookies, java candies, almond roca and biscotti! Now if only I had a cute barista with a hat in my kitchen!!
