Most Wanted May Edition: A UniquExpression of admiration

This post comes a little after the end of May, but I would be remiss if I didn’t make note and share my pick for Most Wanted coffee in May! We went to a few different coffee shops, not as many as April, in all honesty. We did finally make it out to Pine Mountain, Georgia to revisit UniquExpressions. Finally.

I waited for what felt like forever to return there and try their delicious blends again. We brought Jeans (who has since left the blog to pursue her own), who absolutely raved about it. They are the coffee for people who do not like coffee. Their flavors are so fantastically harmonious and smooth that it’s difficult to find something bad to say. My personal favorite is the Prince Harry Iced Latte, because all of the flavors just mesh so well. I’m not sure what they do differently, but it makes the coffee out of this world

We’ll be revisiting Pine Mountain and the surrounding towns for content for the first leg of a rather large undertaking that my Fiance’ inspired me to attempt. I’ll be releasing information about that soon, so be on the lookout!

Coffee and their shoe selection
They have the cutest shoes alongside their amazing coffees!

They give you the coffee in a nicely portable cup- but I do want to note, that it’s not very sturdy. I definitely advise you drink the coffee fairly quickly because the cup will come apart. But, really, I don’t see too much risk of that because my coffee certainly didn’t last long enough for it to be a problem, neither did anyone else’s.

One of my favorite things about UniquExpressions is that they have their information right up front- such as where they acquire their beans and the intensity of the roast. You can view all of that in my previous post about UniquExpressions

I do want to put it out there for our readers that this little shop has more than just coffee. They have pizza, sandwiches and ice cream as well. When we go back to Pine Mountain I intend to give their other treats a try. If you find yourself in the area, or are lucky enough to do a coffee road trip, you don’t want to miss Pine Mountain’s (in my opinion) greatest treasure.

Congratulations, UniquExpressions for being my May’s Most Wanted! We’ll most definitely be back!


Most Wanted; The month of April!

Hey, guys, it’s JJ again with a new monthly series. You’ve seen my  Hometown Cravings posts and now it’s time to do a quick highlight of the best coffee from the previous month.

Quick note that May is going to mark the debut of a couple series, this one included. I’m planning to start a series with some opinion pieces on coffees you can brew in your home. So, be on the lookout for that! There may be some other ones as well, but I have a lot of ideas for you guys to maintain a steady stream of content! I don’t know about you, but I’m excited!

Back on topic, my favorite coffee for April was a tough choice. I had so many good coffees last month in my Hometown Cravings series. But after some deliberation and being talked out of doing a flat out #1 post, I’ve landed on Midtown Coffee as my favorite coffee of April that you just can’t miss.

Right off the bat, I was incredibly impressed to see the picture in my latte, being as much as a creature of habit as I was previously, I had never strayed away from cold drinks. But not only the artfulness of the presentation, I was taken in by the warm hospitality of the staff. I had been sampling the drink for a while and writing, and in the course of that, it had cooled.

But not for long. The staff was on it to bring it back to temperature when I didn’t even know it was an option.

Just look how pretty that is. How could I not be totally enamoured?

Service and Art aside, the drink itself was fantastic. A month later and I’m still craving the smoothness and how well the flavors blended together. I’m honestly not exaggerating when I say the flavor was dang close to this chocolate candy that I used to get around the holidays. Talk about a blast from the past.

Guys, seriously. I literally can’t recommend Midtown Coffee enough. If you’re around here, or from here, pay these lovely people a visit, they deserve their spot for the best coffee of April.
