as our version of restaurant week rolls to an end, i sit here sipping on a yummy treat that gets your day running. if you have ever found yourself wondering through the amazing hayes valley in san fran, you might have stumbled upon linden street where a little kiosk is parked in a garage. this san fran spot, blue bottle coffee, has some of the most lip licking coffee and espresso drinks you will ever sip on. on a hot day a couple years ago, I came upon this new orleans iced coffee. it is a strong, sweet, wonderful libation. the mix of coffee and chicory make for a tasty sipper. blue bottle has now opened a wonderful cafe right in downtown sf where they have lots of tasty food as well. you can shop online and order this coffee kit, as well as many of their great other blends. the new orleans iced coffee kit comes with a pound of beans and a serving of french chicory along with the recipe for making it. i cant tell you how highly i recommend this steeped treat.
