coffee diaries | small world coffee

Preetttty perfect, right!? That's exactly what I was thinking. Small World Coffee in Princeton is a new amazing find of mine - and it was the first entry in my brand new paper-based coffee diary (seen in the pictures) that was a gift to me from my sister. I have only great things to say about it - it was such a pleasant experience on such a lovely spring day.

You know you're in luck when you can snag a table at one of these places. The timing was right, and I ordered a latte first (I was a little hyper on caffeine that day, as you will soon find out). The person in front of me in the line ordered a cappuccino, and when I saw it come out, expertly poured and made with love, I knew I had to have one too. That art! True skill.

We grabbed a seat by the open doors and people of all sorts sauntered in, their dogs leashed outside or their kids by their side for an italian soda.  I am not sure, but I think hours went on as we leisurely sipped our coffees (iced macchiato for J). Thank goodness for her because she talked me into ordering the picture-perfect cappuccino above. First, the leaf, and then the pretty little heart appeared at our table courtesy of the sweetest barista behind the counter. Could I have had a better inaugural experience at Small World Coffee? I don't think so.

Notes from the Coffee Diary:
- smoky undertones, lingering finish
- perfect with a tad of sweetener
- Columbian/Sumatran origin
- full-bodied. yuuuuuum.
