Coffee Ride........In Pursuit of Great Roasted Coffee

November 29, 2015

Took a ride on a cold and blustery Saturday morning in pursuit of some Milan Coffee Works, Hi-Fi dark roast coffee. IMG_20151121_093800954_HDR MCW is a small nano roaster with a small coffee operation in nearby Milan, Michigan. I first sampled their “Hi-Fi” dark roast back in September and fell in love with chocolate richness. On my trip I was test riding a Craigslist pickup from the fall, a vintage Sears Free Spirit maroon 10-speed bicycle.

Here’s some pics from the ride and my adventure mapped out on here on Strava. Author’s note: It helps to have functional brakes when you’re heading out beyond the neighborhood court.
