There are those days when I’m so exhausted I have to use my fingers to prop my right eye open and keep my left eye from twitching. Today is one of those days. I pray for endurance and thank God for espresso on days like these. Restocking at Anthropologie means I’m at work before the sun rises. I just have to survive the first few hours and then, thankfully, I can take a 15 minute break and go to 9th Street Espresso in the Chelsea Market for a triple shot. Somehow it always hits the spot.
Price: Some things more pricy than Stumptown (Lattes are $4.50, Cappuccino’s $4.25, and Macchiato’s are $3.75), but the drip coffee is roughly the same ($1.50-$2). Iced coffee is $3.
Tip: go here for espresso. The coffee is alright, but espresso is their speciality.
