Collage Coffee Shop at the Village at Fairview

Stopped at the Village in Fairview to check out some books at the Real Bookstore.  Decided a cup of coffee was needed.  Ordered from the coffee Shop within the store.  It's called the Collage, serving coffee, tea, beer, and wine.  Also, serving deli entrees that looked tasty.

To satisfy the coffee urge, ordered a "Pour Over Coffee" made with Marks Brothers Coffee in a Brazilian Medium Roast.  Liked the concept... Liked the blend... Earned a "Good Cup of Coffee" rating!

Exxon Convenience Store, Van Alstyne, TX - House Blend

On the road and needed a cup of coffee.  Stopped at an Exxon Convenience Store in Van Alstyne, TX.  Tried their House Blend and rated it an "It'll Do"....  Did the job of quenching the coffee urge but could not bump its rating up even with a tasty apple fritter.

Dark Roast Cafe Tostado Oscuro

Another brew while out and about.  This one is from a c-store in Bastrop.  It's called the Cafe Tostado Oscuro. Get's an "It'll Do" rating.  Had a coffee cake with it but it does not get a boost in rating.

7-11's Exclusive Blend Medium Roast

Was running low on coffee this morning.  Had to make an emergency to the closet convenience store.  In this case, it was 7-11.  Picked up a bag of their Exclusive Blend in a medium roast.  Normally we say 7-11's brewed coffee is hit or miss depending on how long it has brewed on the warmer.  Since we brew it and drink it so quickly, there was no chance for this one to go stale.  Giving this one a "Good Cup of Coffee" rating!  Even better, had an Apple Fritter with the pot we brewed,... tasty, tasty, tasty!
