:p I regret most of the content/jokes here. 40% of which are cringe-worthy. This is not a blog that I'd want my nephews/nieces ...or anyone to read, actually. but it's still up here because of sentimental reasons. The blog took a lot of time to build & I just don't have the heart to delete it. If you do find the jokes funny - I'm happy to know that they're entertaining. Otherwise, here's a more "proper" one http://coffee-choc.blogspot.com ...prob not as funny, mainly about chocolates and coffee and food & music

Things-to-do for coffee fans (/connoisseurs) in Seattle, Washington

Wouldn't call myself a coffee connoisseur. I'll stick with the word "fan". I love coffee but I don't usually "sample" coffee. I like only black coffee ("plain coffee", we call it in other parts of the world outside the US)...and many other forms of the black coffee - Americano, espresso, coffee of the day...whatever you call it, lol. If there's no sugar,  no milk, nothing else but just the coffee, I'll most probably like it.

So, as a coffee-fan...while in Seattle I had to see the first ever Starbucks (at Pike Place Market..)
I've met some anti-corporation coffee snub friends who avoid Starbucks just because it's Starbucks...lol, but I like the blonde roast (cuz it's healthier..and has higher antioxidant levels) and Starbucks is the only place that I know of that sells blonde roast (light roast) coffee
I didn't get coffee there, I had my coffee at Columbia Tower Center

Walked around Seattle after coffee. It is a small city, clean(er) than NYC, kind of reminds me of San Francisco. Some photos of the Escala luxury condominium from the E.L. James' book Fifty Shades of Grey.
It's a porno book, a fun read (in my opinion. So if you're not looking for anything challenging you might enjoy it) that somehow found its way to mainstream bookshelves. Had to laugh at Salman Rushdie's comment on the book: "Fifty Shades of Grey makes Twilight look like War and Peace"

My favorite place in Seattle is a neighborhood called Capitol Hill
