I'm happy to be joining the A to Z Blogging Challenge for 2016. This year has a new (to me) innovation, the theme reveal. When I last participated in 2014 I remember saving revealing the actual theme until the end of the challenge, but instead of a big reveal, in blogs all around the world, today, bloggers are revealing their themes.
I didn't participate last year because I was in Japan, but I'm home for all of April and happy to be part of this challenge. The goal is to blog every week day in alphabetical order, from A to Z. My last theme was New York City food and I had a lot of fun with it. But I didn't think of anything for this year until last week. I was walking with my friend Nancy and we passed one of the thousands of places serving coffee in New York. She commented that a mutual friend thinks that Coffee Shop A serves the best coffee in New York. I was intrigued by the idea and my challenge was born. I am in search of the best coffee in New York City.
This will be by no means a scientific search. I will stop by a few favorites -- perhaps a return to Café Lalo for this beauty -- as well as try a number of new places. I may write about areas of the city, stores, restaurants and coffee serving locations. Friends in New York are happily invited on my coffee expeditions, and I'm eager for any and all recommendations. All opinions are mine and all are subjective. There will be no thermometers to measure temperature of the coffee or any other scientific criteria, just an enjoyment of the coffee. I can't think of a better way to spend the spring days of April.
As ever, thanks for visiting and let's have another cup of coffee!
