After spending time in the wilderness, I like to balance it out with some time in the city. Thus, in a trip to western Pennylvania to take in some of the great outdoors, I was glad to swing into Pittsburgh for some good food and great coffee. 

One of stops was a place called Redhawk Coffee. Visiting their Oakland location, I found their shop situated on a busy street. Within their cozy cafe, Redhawk was booming with patrons coming in and out for great coffee. Depending on the interior seating restrictions and the weather, the shop has seating either/both inside and out. 

As for coffee the day of my visit, I went with an espresso of their City Drug blend and a drip infusion of a single origin Colombia. The espresso, pulled short/medium with brown crema, smacked of caramel, chocolate, cherry, vanilla milkshake, pomegranate and romaine, proving bright and flavorful. The drip coffee also made for an excellent brew, with decadent notes of strawberry, cheesecake, caramel, clementine, toffee and assorted greens.

While I could have spent far more time at Redhawk, the road called my name and I had to depart. Nonetheless, if you seek out some great coffee in Pittsburgh, definitely head over to Redhawk. 

These wonderful folks made this visit possible in part. Make sure to check them out!
