Coffee and Friends with Blue Bottle Coffee

Nothing brings people together like a great friend, a cup of coffee and the world’s most amazing avocado toast! I was so honored and thrilled to head over to the new Blue Bottle Coffee in DC, meet some new friends and hang out with old friends. Angelica was one of the first bloggers I really connected with and made friends with when I moved here in DC. She reached out and connected. And despite the fact that hanging out is always hard I know I can always count on her. Now that all my kids are in school I’m looking forward to more time! Let me just also give a huge huge shout out to Anna Darlak Photography!!!! Not only was she the sweetest in all the land, look at these pictures!!!

But, this is all about the coffee guys! If you haven’t tried Blue Bottle you need to. I’m not gonna like, I enjoy my Starbucks every now and then, I really do. But I’m also the proud owner of my own coffee roaster, so you know I can hang with the rest of the coffee snobs. When I’m drinking coffee I’m looking for a coffee that doesn’t have that acid taste so frequent with your average cup of joe. That’s why we pour so much creamer and sugar into our coffee….to cut the acid. But BB’s cold brew coffee? Heaven!!!

Thanks for hosting us!!

If you haven’t given avocado toast a try yet, you don’t know what you’re missing….and please hurry up and come over to the dark side!! This toast has a hit of chili powder, giving it the most amazing little kick ever. Blue Bottle knows what they are doing!

Blue Bottle is more than just a coffee shop though. Check your local Safeway or Whole Foods (plus others – check their website) for cold brew you can take home! Blue Bottle also offers subscriptions! Take their personalized coffee quiz to see what coffee flavor is the best for you. Grab Blue Bottles cold-brew equipment or look for local brew events and classes.

I also threw together what I think is the perfect outfit for a summer day in the city, drinking some ice coffee! I’m a firm believer in wearing shirts that say how you feel, and I love love love some coffee!!! And combining my two favorite things, coffee and size-inclusive shopping?
