I’ve been a paper / pen junkie most of my life and I still have way too many of them. Â I couldn’t get my blog writing on without a steno pad- LOL. We all have our eccentricities and today mine was having the perfect type of notebook to take notes and to improve my blog. Although I am a huge fan of technology, there is just something about pen and paper. You know what I mean?
As I have said in previous blogs, my local coffee shops are of huge importance to me. I do travel often and I love the adventure of that, but my local shops is where I sit and chat with friends or blog.
The local cafe I am highlighting today is Mad Monks Coffee ShopÂ . This cafe is just 30 minutes from my home and located in the downtown area of quaint little Charles Town, W.V..
Walking in for the first time, I felt comfortable. Two couches facing each other anchored by a throw rug, beautifully hand crafted wood tables, wood tones and a brick wall create a pleasant environment.
The primary roasterÂ used isÂ Â Red Rooster Coffee Company out of Floyd, Virginia and the drinks reflect the quality of this award-winning roaster. I have had the privilege of sampling many of the drinks at Mad Monks from black coffee to iced coffee and I have never been disappointed. This is a fantastic coffee shop!
The cafe is owned by monks and they also serve upÂ tasty monastic breads. Their purpose Â isÂ Â to meet more of their neighbors in town & enjoy the coffee and bread while doing so!
I will be returning! My only hope is for later hours, as this cafes hours are very limited. Look them up and visit them for a great cup of coffee, cappuccino, or iced coffee!
