Enlightenment Coffee

On a visit to Noah's Ark in Kentucky, I found myself without a drop of good coffee in the immediate vicinity of my hotel. The city was aptly named Dry Ridge and fortunately, I was able to make plans to travel a little out of the way early the next morning to grab some local coffee and remedy my situation.

Vagrant Coffee

Despite its proximity, there's not a lot of motive for me to visit Baltimore these days. Sure I blame it partially on the pandemic, but I would also chalk it up to just a lack of good impetus to visit the city in general (though as I write this post, I am chalking up some interest in a visit). Thus, when I found a Baltimore coffee roaster had set up a Philly presence, I figured that would be a perfect compromise for the time being.

Knoxville is another city that I've seen from the highway several times but have never really visited until recently. This summer finally offered a great opportunity to see the city and check out the coffee.

Reading about Harpers Ferry in history books always had me curious about checking out the area, but since it was a bit far for a day trip, I never made it out. Then this past year, my son got his free national park pass in 4th grade and suddenly free park admission motivated my family and I to head over.

Pennsylvania is dotted with tons of intriguing small towns, almost too many to visit. Fortunately, it seems that the more interesting a town, the more likely a good coffee shop will open up nearby, so it's just a matter of tracking down good coffee.
