To Do List
It's been a while... ok, almost 2 entire months since I've posted a review. Admittedly, I've been slacking on the Java Haus blog, but do not think I've given up! The last two months have been very busy. Between being a full-time college student and juggling a part-time job, I haven't had much time to write reviews for the blog. To make it even harder, I'll be heading out to Long Island for the summer in just two weeks.
Going out to Long Island for the summer makes blogging about New York City tough, but there are also some good things that will come out of it. I will be reviewing eastern Long Island coffee shops. While there are probably less coffee shops in eastern Long Island than there are in the West Village alone, the few we have give hip-Manhattan coffee shops some good competition. I'll also be working on a coffee-related project with a friend of mine, but won't reveal the details just yet.
As I prepare to leave New York City until the fall, I want to get in a few more reviews. Cafe Grumpy has caught the attention of blogs and news websites, as they now serve a $12 cup of coffee. I'm not sure if I have the financial resources to experiment with this, but it is high on my list for things to try. I also want to get a review up of Blue Bird Cafe in the East Village. I've spent a lot of time at Grounded lately, and recently tried the Grounded Spiced Latte, the shops signature drink. It may be my favorite drink there, and contains honey, vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon. I like going to Grounded for a cozy atmosphere where I can get work done. It's certainly my favorite spot I've found so far.
I know I've probably lost the attention of many readers since I haven't posted in a while, but I'd love to hear suggestions of places you enjoy, or places you would like me to review.
