soft, complex

We have a friend here at work who’s mom lives in Puerto Rico. She grows and roasts her own coffee and said friend always brings some back to be brewed at the office. This morning is Lucky Morning. I got a big cup’s worth and topped it off with a little regular milk (this blend scoffs at skim)… pure bliss. It’s strong, smoky and a bit bitter on its own but the small amount of milk rounds it out perfectly. So nice.

So it’s been awhile since I posted; inertia is a hard thing to overcome. I’ve been busy these first few weeks of January. I took a trip to Minneapolis to visit the fam, I’ve been doing a lot of wedding stuff in my “spare” time and last weekend we lost power for a day, due to a big storm. There are still people without power so I feel incredibly lucky to have been inconvienienced for such a short time in comparison.

Last weekend, in-between the relaxing part and the storm part we tried a new place in South Norwalk: Chocopologie. Chocopologie is a cafe/bakery/chocolate shop. They have very good hours (M-W 7:30a – 10p, Thurs 7:30a – midnight, Fri 7:30a – 2a, Sat 9:30a – 2a and Sunday 10a – 6p) and fabulous food, desserts, coffee and hot chocolate at reasonable prices. There isn’t a website specific to the restaurant but it’s run by a chocolatier, Fritz Knipschildt and you can find a bit more information about him and his chocolates at Knipschildt Chocolatier. Check it out.
