I must be insane — this morning despite the cool 54 degree temperature I ordered an iced coffee at Hava Java (Camelback Rd. and 32nd St). What’s the matter with Hava Java? The woman behind the counter filled a plastic cup to overfilling with ice cubes and pointed around the corner to the coffee stand. I had to pour hot coffee over my ice (melting most of the ice). Someone please tell me this isn’t normal. I had to add two sweeteners just to cover the weak coffee with so much melted ice.

Before stopping there, I drove past Market Street Coffee Co. (Tatum Blvd and Shea Blvd). They just so happen to know how to make iced coffee. However, Market Street was closed for renovations and a sign on the window didn’t provide a reopening timetable but I noticed all of the furniture was missing. What’s the story? Someone must know. Market Street Coffee Co. has some of the fanciest locations around. They do not need renovating from what I can tell. If anything, they’re too fancy. In addition, if you’re going to renovate you do it at night or you keep the place open as much as you can.
