With December starting and California finally getting the winter chill, it’s time to break out the hot lattes, hot cocoas, or hot teas to warm yourself up.

When it comes to the winter time, one of the best things is sipping your hot drink while working or catching up with an old friend. Coffee, to me, helps in the creative process allowing me to “espresso” (get it?) myself. My drink of choice? A latte with honey. There’s more to coffee than puns and the caffeine jitters. Sharing the cup of coffee with a friend is one of life’s little joys. The chill atmosphere of the shop, warming up with the hot drink, and the latte art makes being at a coffee shop one of the moments that matter.

“We want to do a lot of stuff; we’re not in great shape. We didn’t get a good night’s sleep. We’re a little depressed. Coffee solves all these problems in one delightful little cup.” Quotation from Jerry Seinfeld.
