Coffee Adventure No. 2
weekend of 1/20 - 1/22/12
Coffee Adventure No. 2
note: the tiny/cute Daikon Radishes in the center, had to bring a few of those babies home...another name for them is a Chinese Radish & usually they are enormous, so these are a treat?!
The Revival Market
Coffee Partners w/ Greenway Coffee Co/Greenway Barista
Fat Cats Creamery
Gulf Shrimp Stock
Slow Dough Bread Company
Cortado, Cranberry Bread, Daikon Radishes & a thin slice of Parmesan Cheese...
(note: I seemed to have forgotten to take a pic of my coffee?! And that last item the nice guy behind the counter wrapped it up, sealed it up-in zip bag, put it on ice in another tie bag - ready for the long road home, which meant No Fat Cats Creamery on the road - that I didn't find...another chance, another weekend, another adventure...)
2 loaves of Slow Dough Bread Co on the left - Cranberry Walnut, am going to snag one as a couple comes in to squeeze them & am guessing she'll snag the other...don't smoosh my bread please?!
550 Heights Boulevard (at White Oak - aka in The Heights)

We are pretty proud of our coffee bar,
They will prepare you a choice of coffees –
made with beans from one of four local coffee purveyors.
We also stock beans by the pound that can be ground to you specifications.
Revival also offers a selection of Rishi teas,
Note: the Fabulously Proud Label...Gulf Shrimp Stock--
so not just any stock & not just any shrimp--but Gulf Shrimp?!

note: my 3 purchases from what I thought were 2 different roasters...
2 from Catalina Coffee Shop/Max/Amaya Roasting Co - Guatemala/Rwanda
1 from Revival Market - what I thought was Greenway Roasting Co, is Amaya Roasting Co with a different label & of all the things Decaf...
(note: I really/Really didn't have my glasses on then to make that mistake w/this label--I thought all the white bags under the counter were all from Greenway, guess I shoulda asked...or like the Fat Cats Creamery, it could be they substitute when things are Sold Out?! Or another possibility is that they/Amaya roasted a decaf coffee for Greenway - but they're now roasting their own coffee is what I'd heard & I was trying to find their roasted coffee, as their shop is closed on Sunday, if not w/e's so that's the only time I had...)

Did you take the Hint??!!
"Dead Man Talking"
(of course that would be in a Texas RestStop...
& does anyone else have a big enough imagination
to think it kinda looks like a windshield w/the trees
reflection in it?! but if I could crop out the frame
would be even more convincing--more to learn,
