It’s Saturday, which means there will be a delicious (and I mean life-changing delicious) iced coffee in my near future. This recipe…try it, really. It’s the best.
Also, a chance to shamelessly, and enthusiastically, promote my daughter Kate’s newest project (along with her creative, delightful and oh-so-entertaining beau, Brendan), Mr. Boat-head’s Electrical Dream Ship. Launching in September, story here.

Monica Lee, San Francisco, CA. Taken in Kochi, Japan.
“Walking down the street in Kochi City, Japan and came across this signage. There is no doubt what is served behind this store front door when it is open!”
Monica is one of our college friends (which is nicer than saying she’s one of our oldest friends) and connected to several of the other caffeinated contributors (Alix, Kevin, Chip, Tom, Leslie, Tracy, Kathe, Dianne). Monica doesn’t drink coffee, but she promised me a photo (and she can always be counted on for cool signage) She’s a talented photographer and artist, and blogs as the Artful ReCrafter here. So happy you joined, Monica. It wasn’t a party until you were here.

Rob Keller, Tampa, Florida.
This one is so pretty, I think I am going to let it sit by itself today. More cups tomorrow, but for the moment, one perfect cup to enjoy. Double click on the photo and you can really enjoy it.
Rob is a graphic designer and shows his Flicker photos here.

Janine Graf, Redmond, WA.
Janine’s photos always make me happy. I mean, doesn’t this make you happy? Even if you take your coffee no-whip, you have to love this.
Janine manages the Flickr Group, Caffeine Nation. Her Flickr photostream is here and her photo Facebook page is here. Janine also sells 5×5 art prints of her fabulous coffee photos. Check out her shop here.

This cup of coffee comes with a little self promotion. We (that would be Tackett+Barbaria, our design studio, in partnership with the City of Davis) just delivered our first set of diner mugs to the UC Davis Bookstore in Downtown Davis. Also available, a six-color t shirt with the same bicycle and clever tagline. And if you’re not a coffee drinker (but really, you wouldn’t be here unless you were), the mug is heavy enough to do double duty as your bodyguard.

Reina, Davis, CA.
Morning latte at Crepeville, in Downtown Davis. Perfect.
Reina is a UC Davis grad student. I’ve been enjoying her close up magic for a year, and lucky for me (us), she’s also a coffee lover. Her Flickr page here.

A clean house can wait. The coffee and patio deserve to be enjoyed now.

I’ve been a fan since I was five and had a Beatles birthday party (complete with Pin the Head on the Beatle). When I learned how to write, I personally autographed my Hard Days Night album, thinking I could save them the trouble. Alex has the album now, as well as a few coffee mugs. She has good taste, that daughter of mine.

Quinn Pendleton, Monte Carlo, Monaco. Sipped and shot in Catania, Sicily.
Quinn dances with the Ballet de Monte Carlos and seems to find moments to enjoy (and photograph) her coffee. She blogged about this trip here.

500 is finally here! Thanks to Janine for the base photo for this mosaic made up of all the Chroma Cafe images from this week.
(ps–Want to make a cool mosaic like this? The program is free, and it’s called MacOSaiX.)
It’s been fun joining you guys this week. Can’t wait to see the next 500.
