    What is your position on disposable coffee cups? Which is better, foam or paper and why do you prefer one over the other?

  2. Hi Chris.. Congrats on the AZ Republic article. I’m glad we found you and look forward to checking out your blog! Keep up the great work. 🙂

  3. Tim,

    I prefer porcelain mugs and ask for it more often than anything. But if I have to go with disposable I like paper cups. Foam ones feel like they’re going to come apart on me.


  4. Nick,

    Thanks for visiting and for your kind words. Thanks again and see you around.


  5. Congrats on the AZ Rep write up!!

  6. See, like my father says”every dog gets his day”. I knew that it was a mater of time for Tingom to get his recognition. Congratulations and well deserved.

  7. We just moved to Gilbert from Texas and I was delighted to read the AZ Republic article about your blog.

    Today is the first time I’ve looked at your blog. Thanks for the content. When I go to a coffee place–I want a great cup of coffee (not the over-roasted mud that Starbuck’s serves)and I want a comfortable environment that makes me want to stay awhile…to read or write or have an interesting conversation…that means comfortable table and chairs or comfy (and clean) couches or easy chairs. Some appetizing and fresh pastries or bagels are always appreciated. I want friendly people who smile and converse when they take my order. I live in north Scottsdale and that’s not easy to find. Cave Creek Coffee is teeming with 50+ middle aged Harley bikers–especially on the weekends. Blue Sky in Carefree has interesting environment–though the coffee is just ok and the food…well it depends on the day. Keep it up sweetie. Please include ambiance info i.e. comfort/light/friendliness in your future comments along with the coffee info.
