|LBJ Memorial Grove offers a great view across the Potomac to the DC Monuments, at this time of year though the sunrise is actually well south of the general view (right of frame) so I'll pick a different spot for the next sunrise!|
Inspired by many of the postings about Sunrise Coffee on the RBW list, and also by Ocean Air Cycle's early morning adventures I finally pulled the trigger this morning on a sunrise cup-a-joe.
Location - LBJ Memorial Grove (off the Mount Vernon Trail in Arlington)
Bike - Bridgestone XO-3, singlespeed
Coffee - Ethiopia Amaro Gayo, Roasted at Swings in Del Ray
Brew Method - Pour over
I'm hoping to establish a semi-regular sunrise coffee club, I'll be posting about my rides over at the Bike Arlington Forum but I'm not sure it'll always be the same day, and the location will definitely rotate. Stay tuned.
|The XO-3 is sporting fore and aft storage for the occasion, the rear trunk bag was for the coffee gear.|
|Not just coffee, not just brewed on the spot, but pour over, single origin, hand ground coffee! :)|
