Believe it or not, I did not start drinking coffee until the year of our lord two-thousand-and-six. What did I do before then? Fall asleep a lot.
Since I started working downtown, I frequent Simpatico Espresso, located at a kiosk in the lobby of the Regional Enterprise Tower. Meet my suppliers, Ward and Cappy:
Since then, I have had white chocolate mochas, cafe au laits, americanos, etc. Of course, I still use a lot of sugar water, but now I am spoiled by the taste of good espresso. I tried to drink one at the Beaver Eat-N-Park, and I couldn't finish three sips.
UPDATE: Simpatico is having an Anniversary (1 yr, 3 days) Celebration, with some menu items on special, including the Northwest Berry Smoothie!!!
