Bean Brigade!

Traveling the country, one sip at a time…

Shark bean!

You are probably wondering why in the world we choose this name…time will tell.

First I want to say sorry fans, we started out with a goal to post a new coffee shop everyday, that is not possible anymore. We will post often though, that you can count on. Oh, and every post will be awesome, count on that too.

This bean family has a very exciting announcement!!! We are relocating to momma beans hometown, California!!!
We are braving the 60 hour trip by car in our beloved tiny Pontiac vibe with 2 baby beans, momma and poppa bean and even puppy bean. Along with everything we can possiby cram into every nook and cranny, I have a feeling this blog is about to get a lot more adventurous and funny.

The main point is we will stop at in at least one coffee shop per state on our cross country journey. Yay! We are leaving very soon so keep checking back. You never know where we’ll be next!

During our vacation we had the best time in Venice beach, CA. Our first stop was coffee, obviously. We spotted this little hole in the wall with a nice big coffee sign. It didn’t take long to realize we had seen this business on Shark Tank, we love that show!! Anybody remember Shultzies bread pudding?!? Well Mr Wonderful may not have been impressed but we sure were!!

You may be thinking, bread pudding? Gross! No, no, no, this is not your average bread pudding with flavors like caramel explosion and chocolate chip banana it was amazing! They had a good, unique coffee selection. Poppa bean got a yummy hazelnut coffee. Mommy bean got a dirty chai. Now you may not be aware of mommas chai fetish but I’m obsessed with trying new chais and have been looking for one better then Starbucks blend forever, haven’t found one yet. But, this chai was definitely better then most! Dirty chai is when you add espresso shots. Yum!! Although this place was good. It was very tiny, very limited seating, nothing special for kids and they weren’t too impressed by the bread pudding. The coffee cups were only one size, tiny, and that always makes this momma and Poppa mad! Haha. All in all, we had the best day in Venice, we just love it there!

This is a very cool and unique little place off the beaten path. Super cute doggie theme. Baby beans loved it. The drinks were good, nice variety. A little pricey. Very neat little kid friendly section with games, toys, and coloring books. Also great kid friendly out side seating. We really enjoyed this place! Poppa bean and momma bean both enjoyed irish cream iced lattes. Beans 1 and 2 shared Apple juice. This place comes highly recommend if your ever in the area.

Love, the crazy bean family.

Your favorite beans are back!!!!!!!!!

Hey everybody!!!

Oh how we’ve missed you so! I won’t get too depressing on ya But I do want to say sorry and explain why we haven’t been blogging. Poppa bean fell ill and has been in and out of the hospital, momma beans had some health issues and bean 1 also now has a diagnosis which I may share more about in the near future. So needless to say we’ve been to busy with Dr’s and appts to blog. But we are all okay, everyone is doing better. Praise God!

Coffee can get ya through anything!

This bean family is still as madly in love as ever with coffee. Bean 2 is also sneaking around stealing sips from our cups, even the baby bean loves it.

We are very excited to announce that we are in CA!!!!!!!!!!! We are also hitting up Vegas.

So we have some awesome coffee shops to share with you all. Today there is no coffee shop review but just an update that were back. We hope you all have stuck with us and will continue on this journey along with us. Spread the word, the beans are back!!!!!

Beans 1 and 2 took their very first plane ride to get here. They did so good. They loved it!

We visited the world’s largest dinosaurs, in Cabazon, CA. You can climb all the way up to the top of this trex and look out his teeth, very cool.

We met a very talented balloon man who made an Elmo for bean 2 and his first ever balloon dump truck for bean 1. Took him like a half an hour, it even really dumped!

We found the world’s largest frappachino, haha, okay, maybe not but it makes a pretty cool picture.
