PittGirl’s new coffee obsession

PittGirl loves her coffee. My obsessions have swung from a plain Starbucks vanilla coffee to the pumpkin spice latte to the eggnog chai latte to the chai tea latte.

The local Brueggers, at least the one on Grant, is now selling a flavored coffee (a large will put you out $1.62) called Golden French Toast, which has just a hint of maple and whatnot. This coffee totally tastes like French Toast. Without the carbs, though.

Go try it.

While we’re talking Bruegger’s, help me out Mellonites. When PittGirl interned her summers home from Texas, I would regularly walk past Bruegger’s with my younger sister who was also interning in the downtown area. We would some days walk past a man that was either walking toward Brueggers, was in Brueggers, or was leaving Brueggers and heading toward Mellon. He’s still around. He always just gets coffee. Actually, “man” doesn’t do him justice. More like an Adonis. Tall (at least 6′ 3″), olivey skin, straight black hair that he used to wear a bit longer and now isn’t quite so long, always dressed in a suit. At the time I first started seeing him, he was probably in his early 30s and is now in his late 30s. And just smokin’ hot.

I wonder who he is and why he’s not been named one of Pittsburgh’s 25 Hottest. Oh, wait. I know why not. Cause Pittsburgh’s 25 Hottest are ugly people.

    I’m sorry.. did you say $1.62 for coffee???

    I don’t drink the stuff… but isn’t that a bit pricy???

    Dude? If I want my regular latte, it costs me $4.23.

    $1.62 is a bargain for me.

    Although, a .99 cent Hazelnut at the GetGo is pretty awesome too.

    Hey, I blame Starbucks. They obviously put crack in their lattes. If you ever had one, you would understand.

    I was in that Brueggers last week and this guy in front of me looks real familiar (and he’s not bad looking either) and it’s killing me cause I can’t figure out who he is. He drinks hot tea plain, just like me. When I got back to my office it finally occurs to me that he is Mike Lamb the guy who ran for Mayor.
