Home brew

Today we are doing things a little differently. An inside look if you will. For the days we dont get out to a coffee shop for whatever reason we have got an awesome little set up at our place.

At any given time we always have at least two types of coffee and two types of espresso. We always have variety of creamers, syrups, etc. We even have a few varieties of instant, mostly for guests or camping. We even have decaf for when grandma visits.

Not all are pictured but we have a 4 cup coffee pot, a 12 cup pot, a keruig, a frappichino machine, and our most priced posession, the espresso maker.

Meaning, at any given moment I can make you a frap, a latte, an americano, iced coffee, hot coffee, flavored, plain, decaf, whatever you need or like, we’ve got it. Ive even got a couple varieties of chai tea I add espresso shots too, which is a favorite of these beans.

We’ve even got momma beans prized starbucks cup collection to serve up your coffee in.

So, on your travels if you ever need to stop by for a caffeine fix we are right between Richmond and Williamsburg and we’ve got you covered.

Can we score our own house? Hey, we own this blog, why not?

Shopping bean

Java chocolate cafe is inside of the Virginia Center Commons mall and it is not your average “mall coffee” it is truly good! It is a family owned and operated business which we love and support as much as possible. The taste is superb from one of the best plain lattes weve ever had to their amazing peppermint patty! The atmosphere is welcoming but a little small, esp for large families or groups and the staff is always speedy and sweet. Now, lets see how they did…

There is something magical about a train table. It draws in kids like a magnet. This coffee shop is one of our favorites near home. It is a unique place themed around the train that runs behind it. It has many cool quirky qualities our family of beans always enjoys.

One of the cool things about this place is that they have a listening room where they have live music and a full bar. They have a delicious,  reasonably priced full menu. Their hummus is the best! They have a great little kids area. A take one, leave one book section. Our favorite special thing about this place is their ice cubes are made of black coffee  so that your iced coffee never gets watered down. Okay, this trains about to depart onto the scores…
