To get this blog back up up and running, I've been going around taking photos for content. I knew that the blog would be coming back but I didn't know when... But any who, let's get into today's blog post. With loving Rowster Coffee here in Grand Rapids, I caught wind of them opening up a new shop on the west side of the city. With me being attached to my computer, I started researching. I went onto facebook and I saw that I got an invite to the soft launch of Rower's Club. As you know me and all of my shenanigans, I knew I wanted to keep that day openRead More
When school is finished for the week, homework is not a necessity, and you have a free night, you head out on the town. A couple friends and I headed to Ferris Coffee Co. for their Barista throw down. Blake and I arrived early, grabbed some food, and waited for the throw down to start. As the baristas arrived, I saw a few that I knew and I even saw Bisera of Lush Gourmet. With uniting with some old friends, it was a beautiful night.Read More
With hearing about new coffee shops, I instantly add it to my ever growing list in my field notes. One afternoon I went through each large city that I've visited in Michigan when I traveled in the summer of 2015 and wrote down the craft coffee shops in each corresponding city. With traveling on break, I had my list for Detroit. With researching and seeing new shops pop up on my instagram, I added a couple of them to the list; Ashe Supply Co. being one of them.Read More
It has been one heck of a week. I've been working nonstop on my finals along with getting ready for the holiday season. My parents are flying out for a concert today so I'm heading back to Chesaning to watch Cooper. But yesterday (Thursday) was extremely hectic. I had work, my final exam, and posters to finish. But I then saw that Madcap was having an open house for Shop Hop. Shop Hop is when uptown and uptown becomes a huge shopping experience. With being busy, I sadly couldn't participate in the any of it but I knew I wanted to have a break.Read More

Saturday morning coffee is always a daily fika that I've always loved. Even when I was young, I would be drinking my Grandma Boyd's cold sugary folgers because she didn't like when her coffee got cold. Yes, having coffee at such a young age was probably not the best thing in the world but...hey...It was basically sugary milk by the time my Grandma finished making it. With my tastes becoming developed since those early days, I have a simple way of making a pour over for you guys. Featuring Hand and Fire Ceramics and a beautiful kitchen.Read More
