Coffee Shop: Tuff Beans Tofino, B.C., Canada
It's the current moment, here at Tuff Beans. And being with the type of old friend that you can pick up with as if a day hasn't passed since you were last in each other's company.
Names: Jen and Karl
Coffee Shop: Tim Hortons, Port Alberni, B.C., Canada
Drinking: "Double Double" (coffee, 2 sugars, 2 creams)
Jen pulled in to Starbucks for the date and discovered that it was closed for a staff meeting. She called Karl, and knowing he was going to arrive in a truck, hoped the guy she saw pulling in to the parking lot was him -- it was!!
They moved the date to Tim Hortons, and 12 days later Karl asked Jen to marry him! The rest, as they say, is history and we felt lucky to buy them coffee at Tim Hortons and share their romantic coffee-fueled story.
Name: Annie Bacon
Coffee Shop: Philz, 24th Street San Francisco, CA
Drinking: Istanbul Treat
My parents had left some coffee on the table and walked away for a few minutes. I crept over to the table, and I just remember the smell of the coffee just wafting over and it smelled so good. I peered over, took the cup, and took a huge sip.
I absolutely loved it (even though I got in trouble).
