I love coffee. My days start with a single-serving French press, and the blackest, richest, darkest magic I can conjure from it. Mid-day I'm usually over at a coffee shop with my laptop either making art or procrastinating on the Internet. Usually nursing an Americano (I request less added water to keep it strong - I love espresso but want a coffee to take more than 3 sips to finish). Very occasionally a caramel macchiato if I'm more in the mood for dessert coffee.

I've discovered a roaster here in Atlanta (and Olympia, Washington, as it turns out) called Batdorf & Bronson — love the coffee, love the brand design — and bounce between a couple of locations near(ish) me that serve it. Good stuff.
