My name is Kim, and I love coffee, blogging, my insanely creative friends and my delightfully-entertaining family. I also love small, everyday joys. So a blog documenting 1000 cups of coffee, with contributions by my friends (new, old, real-life, and internet-life) seemed to make perfect sense.
I live in Davis, California, with my husband Steve, teenage daughter, Alex, and oh-so-earnest dog, Toby. My oldest daughter, Kate, lives in Vancouver BC, where the coffee is just a little more interesting.
Steve and I own a graphic design studio, Tackett+Barbaria, where I drink one-third of my daily allowance. I also keep a design blog called re:design. I tweet occasionally and am on Facebook more than is healthy. Despite outward appearances, I also have a real life. Oh, and I keep a personal blog, Kim’s Tour of No Regrets (perhaps now rethinking that declaration of a real life).
I prefer my coffee caffeinated (because what’s the point of decaf?) and am partial to Peet’s Major Dickasons. My coffee house drink is cappuccino dry, and I always appreciate tastefully-decorated foam and a window seat.
