ALRIGHT!!  I'm reading the list - LIFE IS GOOD!!  This is the first
non-direct that I've received.  But I had to go enable john
again - so I'll get some junk in the morning mail - but you guys are worth
it!!
The Texas Hill Country (between San Antonio & Austin) is incredibly
beautiful!  But... with all those artist colonies, and all those Boutiques,
you'd think somebody could make a reasonable cup of coffee....not so!  I
found ONE (1) good coffee place in the whole area  "Carriage Haus - Coffee &
More" in New Braunfels, TX.  My whole family is going nuts over all the
German architecture and I'm going nuts because I finally found a place with
pass-able coffee :O)
I took lots of coffee with me, and actually brought some home. I just opened
a Vac-bag of Panama La Berlina that is incredible. Too good not to share.
I have had a half dozen cups of it this afternoon. LIFE IS GOOD!

John,
I agree that the Texas hill country is beautiful. I live in N. Texas and my family and I travel quite often to San Antonio to visit friends and family and usually take the back roads. Especially beautiful in the spring when the wild flowers are in full bloom. I also have to agree that there is not a decent cup of coffee to be found. This is especially true for N. Texas. You would think living in a very urban area that there would be at least one coffee house that serves good coffee. We have the big chain *$$ and CC's and a few family owned. Maybe I am wrong and if there is someone on this list from the Dallas/Ft.Worth area that has found a place with good coffee, please let me know. I am in a band that has played in a couple of coffee houses and they have a decent cup but nothing really great. There is no place like home!

Wow, you're bringing back memories.  I really miss the 
bluebonnets carpeting the medians and shoulders *sigh*

You'd think that, yes.  I searched all over the place when I lived in 
Westlake several years ago - zilcho.  Covered plenty of turf in that 
search since I was driving to FtW for work and Collin County for 
school.  Except for a few high-end restaurants - nowhere near a 
coffeehouse - I never found good coffee.

Let me tell you, My thoughts were FULL of setting up a coffee shop in the
Gruene or New Braunfels area!  We found some really great restaurants but
NONE had decent coffee. One of them had a good machine - but the beans were
stale Starbucks, and I mean STALE!  It wouldn't take much to be successful
in that area - those people are used to paying $2.50 for dead coffee!
We put a couple of thousand miles on the van running around the hills,
taking pictures and dreaming of living up there. I guess since we are
retired we have no reason NOT to go up there. It is on the front burner in
this house.
And those hills are beautiful with or without the bluebonnets. We found four
different Llama farms and now my wife is trying to figure a way to put
coffee and llamas together :O)
John - loving life in the slow lane
