Good enough for government work.
You really should find some coffee houses that serve Alterra Coffee. First, it's a WI company (Milwaukee). Intellegensia is out of Chicago. Second, it's better. Barriques in the Madison area serves it and also has whole bean sales.
Intelligentsia?That's not meant to draw the chi-chi crowd, is it?
Metaphors/synonyms are close enough for coffee shop associations.
I was eating a black and white cookie[superb] from Barriques recently. A young man from NYC came running up to me on the square as I noshed. He blurted,"I'm from NYC..where did you get that black and white cookie, I've not had one since I left NY." He was so happy. Simple pleasures.
Were you a big Flavor Flav fan back in the day, Althouse?
That is funny but why?Hey! Let's go to that coffee shop-Public Enemy!Then later you're sittin' there wondering why you've been on the toilet all day....
Was that one of the cafes that threatened to poison you two?__________wv = "infiend" A friend in greed is a friend infiend.
My friend opened a Sweet and Savory Shop, locally. And, she carries Intelligentsia coffee. I had never heard of it, before!But she was right. When I tasted it I saw that it was a really high quality delicious cup of coffee. Now, why would any coffee shop ever want to be called "Public Enemy?" Did Edward G. Robinson own da' place?At Sweet & Savory ... it's the homemade stuff that makes this a fantastic stop!
"ndspinelli said...I was eating a black and white cookie[superb] from Barriques recently."I'm not positive but I think that cookie and much of Barriques' bakery is also provided by Alterra...Alterra Bakery. Their bakery division is outstanding and is growing leaps and bounds.
@Carol_Herman: So odd how we both post comments using the word "friend" at the exact same moment in time.I guess our commenstrual cycles have synched.
I sometimes have Johnny Depp on the brain, and that makes me think of Public Enemy, too.
Barriques Iced Coffee is pretty blah, if you ask me. Indie Iced Coffee never disappoints. I think they also sell those black and white cookies -- I see them all over town. Had one once. Meh. The cookie was too cakey. I like my cookies to be crisp on the outside, and chewy on the inside.But even though I like Indie Iced best, I usually get iced coffee at Union South because it's closer and cheaper. It's not always cold however.
James Cagney was really scary in Public Enemy.
Maybe in its prior incarnation the coffee shop was owned by a Republican, so among the Madison intelligentsia it was known as "Enemy of the People."
"Were you a big Flavor Flav fan back in the day, Althouse?"James Cagney.
"You really should find some coffee houses that serve Alterra Coffee. First, it's a WI company (Milwaukee). Intellegensia is out of Chicago. Second, it's better. Barriques in the Madison area serves it and also has whole bean sales."I go to Barriques a lot. I think Intelligentsia is better.
Avoiding these kinds of mistakes is certainly one of the big reasons Mormons don't drink coffee.We rarely if ever mistake the names of coffee houses.
I went to this coffee house for the first time earlier this week. They had Peaberry as a "pour over." Having never had pour over coffee I ordered a medium....man, was it good.It's not exactly in my usual travel pattern, but when I'm in the area, I'm going to give it another go.
If that is the first time old names were cross indexed in your mind, then just wait a few more years.I call that Wisdom.
Starbucks will do individual pour overs and French press for customers who request any coffee (packaged) in the store. They simply grind up the remainder for use in batches.Not a well-known fact.
Who was the guy in the clamdiggers? Fare more silly looking than shorts.
@Curious George and others: True that Intelligenstia is based in Chicago but i would note the company's founder and owner -- Doug Zell -- is a cheesehead from White Fish Bay who went to college at Madison. Does that make you feel any better?
The suggestion is "we're more than just coffee"Which reminds me of the book I just read (on the advice of a sibling)"A History of the World in 6 glasses"It has a great review of coffee, its role in modernizing western civilization and the London Coffee Houses (which were decidedly more "than just coffee")A good, fast read (one plane trip worth)(PS: The "6 glasses" are beer, wine, spirits, coffee, tea and cola)
Intelligentsia coffee is very good. There's a truck that parks weekday mornings near the building where I teach that serves it, and also makes excellent cappuccino and espresso.
The guy in the purple shirt and jeans has a nice backside.
Wait a minute, is that Meade?Uh, forgive the previous piggish comment.
