iced venti cafe con leche
My Starbucks‘ summer drink of choice has been the iced venti with room Americano, and I’d usually add a swig of Half & Half + 1 packet of Sugar in the Raw. I can’t believe the many hot drinks that are still being served into the summer, but to each their own. But, just last week, discovered a new drink on the handwritten blackboard by the barista’s espresso machine: iced cafe con leche (pronounced: lay-chay). Delicious! More milky and sweeter than my usual, plus a hint of cinnamon. Reminds me of the cinnamon dolce latte, but icy cold. Gothamist and Gawker noted the new drink during a 2-hour New York City promo 10 days ago.
[update : whew, my iced venti with room Americano doesn’t count as a controversial ghetto latte]
I was tagged by Goodmanson to talk about my favorite books. I’ve read more than my share of books, easily past the 2 books a year that the average American reads, but I haven’t been reading books lately, so I’m going to pass on jumping in with this meme. At least I was tagged in good company, with the likes of Mark Driscoll. 🙂
Ok, but you only get one get-out-of-meme card. jk. I usually pass on these as well…
Hi- just checking this blog out. Very interesting. mvg
It suddenly struck me, after going to the Goodmanson site, and a few other listings…that i never see C Norman Kraus’s book `The authentic community’ mentioned. Maybe I’m not digging deep enough, but behind/before the whole `continuing conversion of the post evangelical/missional/emergent'(etc) church stand the insights of Kraus’s book.Anyone else read it? Eerdman’s early 70s.
you really must check out Dol Cezza’s in Georgetown before the end of the month for free affogato!
Steve, I’ve not heard of Kraus’ book (but then again, I have a hard time thinking of a book title from the 70s, j/k). Are you thinking of the title “The authentic witness: Credibility and authority” ? Kraus does get quoted in Julie Gorman’s “Community that is Christian” and in a recent Allelon article at http://www.allelon.org/articles/article.cfm?id=284&page=3 (Allelon is emergent-friendly). My guess on why Kraus’ doesn’t get more mention is b/c the book is out-of-print or hard to find, but his insight (at least Gorman’s quote in the Allelon article) is brilliant.
