I spent most of last week in New England— a Tuesday wedding in Massachusetts, Wednesday wandering around little towns in Connecticut, and Thursday and Friday in New York City for the Altitude Design Summit. You’ll hear more about all of those later… but today, just take a moment and enjoy this sweet little coffee shop with me.
My favorite part of solo road trips is exploring whatever random coffee shops strike my fancy. I stayed near New Haven, CT after my Tuesday wedding, slept in as late as possible, and then googled coffee shops between New Haven and New York City. I didn’t care where I spent my afternoon, as long as it put me closer to NYC, had Internet, and served really good coffee. I chose a place and started driving, and certainly wasn’t disappointed!
Espresso Neat is an idealistic coffee shop tucked away in a corner in Darian, CT. They call themselves an “Artisan Coffee Bar,” which made my litte heart happy. The big windows, comfortable benches, and abundance of outlets made me even happier. And then I tasted the coffee, and decided to stay their all day long. Amazing, folks. Amazing. (and now I’m just looking for an excuse to get back!)
