At Once Over Coffee Bar for the final stop of 30 days of trying new coffee places. Enjoying an iced coffee and listening to Bouldin Creek from the back deck. You can find all 31 microblog posts (there was a bonus coffee shop) under the tag #newcoffee. It’s been fun!

Kind of a gloomy morning in Austin, but nothing that breakfast tacos at Torchy’s on South Congress can’t fix. Now working from Sage Cafe, which has a nice back patio overlooking the nursery.

Almost forgot to blog about today’s coffee. We were out at Lake Georgetown this evening and stopped at Cianfrani Coffeehouse on the way. Lots of specialty drinks with fun names, so I ordered the Sugar Daddy: an iced latte with caramel and hazelnut. Very sweet.

Might not be downtown again this week, so hitting a bonus coffee shop while I’m nearby. Departure Lounge is half travel agency, half coffee and wine bar.

After taking the train downtown for Open Coffee Club, walked along the trail to Alta’s Cafe for coffee and a quick bite to eat. Nice back deck overlooking Lady Bird Lake.

Braving SXSW traffic to have an iced vanilla latte at Vintage Heart Coffee. 30 days of new coffee shops is just about wrapped up. 4 more days.

If they have something coffee-related on the menu, it counts. Checking out Juiceland with my daughter. I’m having the Percolator: cold brew coffee, almond milk, banana, cocao powder, coffee concentrate, and cinnamon.

Beautiful day outside for a stop at Beware Coffee. My son is having the Dr. Pepper float, and I’m having the cold brew coffee as a float.

Another rainy morning, another trip out for coffee, this time Patika on South Lamar. Crowded since everyone’s inside instead of on the wet patio. But good weather for a very nice cappuccino.

Ignore that it’s hidden behind a gas station. Found the cozy coffee shop Sips Coffee & More in Round Rock today. Happily surprised that they make fresh crepes.

Very rainy day for the coffee shop commute. Marking the 14th anniversary of this weblog with a visit to a cafe that’s even older than that: Spider House. Trying the dirty horchata (rice milk, cinnamon, and 2 shots of espresso, shaken with ice).

Today’s stop for coffee and a little coding is Fat Cats: Organic Coffee & Desserts. Their cold brew coffee comes with frozen coffee ice cubes!

A little off my morning routine today, so working this afternoon from Kick Butt Coffee. Cool place with a stage for live music at night.

This morning’s coffee is from the Elixer coffee truck. Usually at Mueller, but parked this weekend at Staple! Expo. Coffee plus indie comics in one place.

Grabbing a quick breakfast and coffee at Cherrywood Coffeehouse before heading over to Staple! Expo to help set up. If you’re in Austin and a fan of indie comics and art, check it out today or tomorrow.

Trying Stinson’s Bistro in Rosedale this morning. This area sure has some nice coffee shops. Obviously Houndstooth on Lamar, but also Pacha which I visited a couple weeks ago, and Thunderbird nearby too.

I’ve been trying a lot of new coffee drinks on this 30 days 30 new coffee shops experiment. An iced latte remains my go-to drink if nothing stands out, but I always wonder at a new place if it’ll have too much milk or not enough espresso. That concern is unfounded at Figure 8 Coffee Purveyors, which I’m at today. Just right.

Still discovering new coffee shops that I’ve probably driven by many times and never noticed. This morning, working from Joel’s Coffee in northwest Austin.

Just a little east of downtown this morning for a coffee at Wright Bros. Brew & Brew. If you’re in a Super Tuesday state, don’t forget to vote today!

Sitting outside with Damon at Seventh Flag, having an iced coffee and breakfast tacos. Also updated the coffee page with specifically which coffee shops I’ll be trying this week if anyone wants to join me for a coffee or just stop by!
