Enjoying Local

We awoke on Sunday morning, threw on our running shoes, and headed out for a run. Just a short 1.5 miles with the dog, but our destination was Barefoot Coffee for a fresh bag of beans, a complimentary pour over and a Shakerato (barista’s choice latte).

As we passed the corner Starbucks, I realized how much I appreciate supporting the smaller shop. It’s just outside of the little downtown area. It stays just busy enough for a buzz of energy, but just empty enough to not draw a huge line out the door. The staff is knowledgeable and willing to “talk shop” and give suggestions.

We always get great drinks from Barefoot Coffee. I need to make sure I get there more often.
