Travel Must Stop: Siphon Coffee, Houston, Texas




If you're a coffee lover, you must add Siphon Coffee in Houston to your list of "must try" coffee houses.

Siphon offers a cool coffee vibe, lots of seating, it's fun to watch the "siphoning coffee," and the service is a combination of "Hipster meets Southern Charm."

Summertime is hot so you might want to go for an iced version.  It's never too hot for me to drink coffee, so I opted for a hot cup.

I enjoyed it so much that I grabbed a bag of Houston's "Boomtown Coffee," to bring home.

All of the coffees they brew and sell are from Houston-area microroasters.

The third-wave has definitely made its way to Houston.

Fonté Coffee Espresso Reserve Blend



I'm not even going to pretend that Fonté coffee is anything less than exceptional.

I'm also not going to pretend to you that it's not on the expensive side.  It is.  No, it's not your $100 per pound variety, but it's not something that the Average Joe or Josie can enjoy all the time.

However, I do work hard and like to treat myself on special days.  Like Thursday.

This "signature" dark roast blend is one of my absolute favorites.

I keep thinking that if I stopped spending so much on coffee that maybe one day I could visit the Fonté Cafe in Seattle.

Until then, I'll indulge in moderation.
