Hey, Caf-Fiends!

If you live in the United States in a good sized town, you can probably find a Starbucks on every corner. In Chicago, you certainly can.

Kopakama Cooperative

Kopakama Cooperative

Hey, Caf-Fiends!

I wanted to bring to you all two things–a life update and a story I recently read about the Kopakama Cooperative. If you’ve been following me on Instagram, then you already know that I’m a barista at Stellar Beans in Lake Charles, LA. I know, first I drink the coffee then I write about the coffee then I became a barista (Gilmore Girls reference anyone?).

Anyway, I’m currently living at my parent’s house in Lake Charles, LA while I try and save money to move to Austin, TX where in two or three years time I hope to one day open a coffee shop!

Well, that’s my little blurb about me, let’s move on to the real story–The Kopakama Cooperative.

Sunday morning, let’s be honest, Sunday afternoon my friend Kara and I decided to get brunch. It was the day after my birthday party and we usually get brunch and discuss the previous night’s events.

We had planned to go this one brunch place, but it closed at 3PM and the line was out the door. We ended up at this small bar, which serves brunch, called Patsy’s Place: Pub and Grill.
