Where do you go for a good cup of Joe in Lake County you ask? Well ask a coffee addict. I have been a coffee addict since the late 70s when I joined the Navy. Back then there were none of the fun posh coffee shops offering coffee drinks like latte’s, espressos and other exotic blends. I had to drink Navy coffee which tasted like it was filtered through someone’s dirty sock but I managed to develop a taste for it and I needed the caffeine to stay awake and be alert during long patrols at sea. Thankfully times have changed and now you can find fun coffee shops all over the country.
When I lived in the Bay Area I was a Peets Coffee regular but now that I live in Lake County I’m proud to say that you can find an incredibly good cup of Joe in almost every community in the county.
The thing I like most about our small privately owned coffee shops are the friendly and cheerful coffee baristas that greet you every morning. We have all types of coffee houses offering a wide variety of coffee drinks and social atmospheres.
Many have areas where you can sit indoors or outdoors and many have internet access via wifi so you can relax for a while and catch up on emails or surf the net or put all the silly technology down and simply enjoy the social atmosphere.
I still have more to come with this blog because there are still more great places to have a cup of coffee in Clearlake, Middletown, Lower Lake and Hidden Valley Lake. Check back for more.
