This week, we visit cafes between Ohio and Tennessee, on the Rialta Coffee Tour!

So why do I tell you all this today? Well, partly because I’m thinking about how good 2014 has been to us and I’m getting all nostalgic and grateful (Kleenex, please!), and naturally I’m wondering how 2015 is going to shake out and that type of thing. That’s part of it. The other part is that in order to make sense of this post, you’re going to need to be thinking about those competing priorities because we are all over the place. We’ll start at an Interstate rest area near Cleveland, Ohio, and end up at my sister’s house in Cleveland, Tennessee. In between, we’ll visit coffee competitions, out-of-the-way shops, closed shops (arrrg!), shops in churches, backwards shops, and more. Yep, it’s gonna get weird on the Rialta Coffee Tour, just the way we like it. So buckle up, here we go!
