Need coffee ... everywhere, anywhere
About the only time I'm not consuming coffee is in the evening when I get home, because I'm too lazy to make a fresh pot. During the day here at The News-Herald, the newsroom pot is constantly being refreshed.
When I'm out and about in the area, I feel as though I'm always hunting for a coffee shop to satisfy my craving.
I found a great one a couple weeks ago not far from the office. Bear Creek Coffee opened in September at the corner of Midland and Mentor Avenue, in a shopping center across from the Points East plaza.
When I walked in, I enjoyed the beautifully designed decor, but once I hit the counter, I found my true love on the menu.
The "Eye-Opener" is an espresso on steroids. I normally get an Americano-like drink at other coffee shops, which combines espresso and hot water. The eye-opener combines espresso with brewed coffee.
You can pick your coffee blend, and add flavored syrups if you wish.
Another favorite feature of Bear Creek Coffee is the drive-thru on the Midland side of the building.
I wish the owners continued success in their new venture. And, please, keep that espresso coming!!
