Plum Brew Coffee~Johnson City TN

image

Today was an exciting day!  I visted one of the most interesting coffee and art establishments by far: Plum Brew located in “My Hometown” Johnson City TN.  I always feel a sense of great joy coming back to visit family but Wow this makes it a little sweeter!

Plum Brew is located downtown inside the Nelson Fine Art Center. They offer a variety of coffees, espresso drinks, hot teas and hot chocolate, local-made backed goods and house-made crepes!  They even provide delivery to downtown businesses! P.B. has an online store but more excitingly they now serve Nitro! As you may have read in my last post, Cold Brew Nitro is a high caffeine “on tap” coffee that pours like Guinness.

My husband and I had the Johnson’s Nitro! It was so smooth and had a beautiful finish. The Crepes were amazing! We had the Skinny Italian: with tomatoes, basil, mozzarella and balsamic drizzle. To finish, we enjoyed the Banarama: with Nutella and Fresh Bananas! Oh what a treat!!!

The Corner Perk- Bluffton SC

image

On a recent family reunion trip to “Beautiful” Hilton Head SC, our family had the opportunity to venture off to another lovely town: Bluffton SC. There we found a very cute and stylish coffee house:The Corner Perk (TCP). The Corner Perk is a locally owned coffee shop and cafe situated in the historic downtown Bluffton area.

TCP rates high on my list because they roast their own Organically Grown-Fair Trade beans! If you have read any if my post, then you know I believe this is a difference maker. Also, their customer service is A++. The staff is very friendly and they love explaining all of the cool things on the menu:)

I enjoyed the Hazelnut Truffle Latte. The flavor combination was perfecto! Our kids drank loads of the Strawberry Mint Lemonade:) The lemonade and the Peanut Butter Brownies were delish!!! My husband tried the brand new Cold Brew Nitro. This is a high caffeine “on tap” brew that pours like Guinness. He completely enjoyed this and the Chocolate Cupcake with cream cheese frosting!

If you ever find yourself in the Bluffton SC area, check out TCP ( www.cornerperk.com/). You will be glad you did!!!

Java Always,

Alicia
