I loved the Sightglass Coffee I had at Hooker’s Sweet Treats so much that I went to their store in the afternoon. It was a little less than a mile away from my hotel so I walked. I walk for coffee. There’s no distance to far or near for my beloved coffee.
After consulting the saved image of Google map’s directions to Sightglass on my iPhone several times I finally found the place (that’s the hardship of not having 3G on my iPhone). I was so happy the place was still open.
I bought 3 bags of coffee beans, the cheapest one cost $14 for 340 g. and the most expensive one cost $21. Yes they’re quite expensive but definitely worth it and I can’t wait to taste them.
I paid on this iPad with a Square card reader attached to swipe my credit card. I signed on the iPad. I found out that Sightglass Coffee was one of the first merchants to use this method because the CEO of Square, Jack Dorsey is also an investor in Sightglass Coffee as well as the inventor of Twitter.
Owl’s Howl is what I drank at Hooker’s and it’s one of the beans I bought. My trek to Sightglass Coffee was definitely worth it even though Ariel later told me that it wasn’t a good area for me to walk to by myself. I was quite jittery on my way back to the hotel since there were several unscrupulous looking subjects in the area but I simply walked faster and was ready to hit any would be attackers with my bag of coffee beans.
