Abracadabra Coffee

We spent the February long weekend skiing at Okemo in Vermont! We rented the cutest tiny home in a town called Chester and loved exploring the surrounding towns! Our favourite was Woodstock, where we enjoyed delicious coffee from Abracadabra

The coffee shop was spacious inside and I loved the heated patio outside too with fire pits! There was a supercool caravan inside where they served coffee and I was able to peak inside the roastery too in the back of their space! Of course I had to try their maple latte, and it did not disappoint!

I was in Chicago recently and had a chance to visit Foxtrot, a high end convenience store and coffee shop! Foxtrot has it all: coffee, wine, grab-and-go food, snacks and anything else you may need to stop at your local convenience store for! For locals, they can even request delivery and join their membership program. 

I really enjoyed the La Colombe drip coffee from their coffee shop and even grabbed their newly available "Early Train Espresso Blend" coffee to bring home. I've been brewing these beans in my (new) french press lately and they are the perfect balance between sweet and robust with notes of dark chocolate, toffee and apple. I definitely want to visit more locations in the future and try all of the coffee and goodies!
