And the coffee was excellent


Fleming and I made the pilgramage to Chicago's coffee palace, Intelligentsia. The coffee was so good, we didn't even mind the $20.00 we spent in cab fare to get there and back.

We started with an order that confused the gal behind the counter; we each ordered a single espresso and a single macchiato. We quaffed those very quickly, and immediately followed up with another order. Fleming went for the latte pictured here. I ordered a traditinal cappuccino.

We sat and enjoyed the place for a bit, and then we headed back. I couldn't leave without taking a bit more of the store with me. We'll see how well the pound of whole bean espresso does in my home espresso machine.
