Coffee shops

Standard

I’m a huge procrastinator so having exams this week means that I am sleep deprived and the only solution I have is coffee. Unfortunately in Spain we don’t have the coffee shops that Anglo-Saxon countries have and which I love so much, except for Starbucks, of course, but as much as I like it, it is super expensive. I’m not saying the coffee in these places is particuarly good but it has caffeine and more importantly they have it to go, which is a foreign concept for Spanish bars. Either way, In the morning I don’t usually have time to make coffee so it would be great to have a place right around the corner  where I can grab a cup as I’m heading for the subway. And in this train of though I started thinking about the lovely place that was just around the corner of my house the year that I lived in Belfast. Only 80 cents or so for a coffee. I really miss those days.

But if there is a coffee place I miss it’s Tim Hortons. It is cheap and it has timbits, if I could have one of those here in Spain my life would be complete. Bottom line of the post is I’m really tired and I need to move to a place with decent coffee shops.
