Coffee Dreams

I’ve been frequenting a lot of coffee shops in San Francisco lately.  I get cabin fever easily, and I feel the incessant urge to leave my house each day.  Generally, I try to save money by making coffee at home (San Francisco coffee is expensive!), but I sometimes give in to my inner demons and […]
