Coffee Talk

I started drinking coffee during my senior year of college. You might be thinking – “Well, that makes sense. She’s staying up late applying to grad schools, on top of studying for her classes. No wonder she started to drink coffee – most people do.”

I started to drink coffee, because my social circles at the time revolved around coffee shops. Coffee became something social to me, as it is for a lot of people.

I don’t know if having my friends there made the coffee taste better, but I was hooked – hook, line, and coffee bean.

It is also important for me to note that these coffee shops were exactly that – coffee shops – not your typical chains. These were the places where even locals said, “You go where?”.

But these were places (I should clarify and say place and not places. I only went to one place. Every day.) where I felt good going and felt even better bringing my friends, new and old.

When the pandemic became a reality, this is something I stumbled over.

I am blessed that the coffee shop, that I frequent in our area, has a drive-thru. This checks one of the two boxes when you say “coffee talk.”

I had the coffee, but I didn’t have the talk. I mean, I talked to the Barista, but you understand…

Coffee is great, but can you go along with me here and say that people are better?

My friends and I solved this dilemma by coordinating when we were going through the drive-thru (say that 10x fast), so that we could meet-up at a walking trail about five minutes down the road.

Coffee – check. Friends – check. Exercise – a beautiful bonus.

Urban Athlete solves this dilemma by holding Coffee Talk after our 9AM virtual workout every Saturday. 

This is a place where people can come as they are – sweaty (if they just worked out) or freshly showered (if…you know… they happened to sleep in).

I mean it is a Saturday!

Cheers to you and coffee. Cheers to you drinking your coffee.
