Ummmm, this chicago coffee shop was as good a coffee shop there is. I had been recommended Intellegentsia coffee by a handful of people and knew I had to try it. Their brewing methods vary from drip to using a siphon (both pictured.) I didn't know much about the siphon and asked some questions along the way. It's so crazy the way it heats (my dark blend reached 198 degrees- yowzas!), pulls the water down, sucks the grounds up, yada yada yada. If you're actually interested in the method check THIS out.
Also while i was away "on business" hubby and puppy decided to cozy up for a bay window nap. My mister man saw this as a good photo email opportunity titled "When is my mom coming home?" #beyondcute Oh, I also cut myself more bang. The fashion girls in Chicago were rocking the thick bangs. Thought I'd give 'em a try :) Hope everyone had a good weekend!
