I’m Alp. And you are… Well, you are here. That could mean one of two things:

1-You are a coffee/café enthusiast. And no, being a coffee-drinker is not the same as having a liking for cafés. One is consumed through your mouth, the other through your soul.

2-You’ve gone down another rabbit hole on the internet and ended up here, with me.

I, a 21-year-old college student, will assume the former is true, and continue.

I am not too fond of the act of drinking coffee. I never have been. My passion lies in being inside coffee houses rather than drinking their products. I am constantly inspired by the passive and fairly-spontaneous chats, sips, and silent-rests that casually live on inside those little shops, which I’ve come to call my second home.

In this blog, I will try to talk about most of the interesting cafés that I’ve come across -and will continue to do so-  during my travels around the world. I will post photos taken by me, and share with you what I have to say about those magical places where thoughts turn into timeless books, and mental images turn into stunning paintings.

Take Care, and Treat Coffee like a Friend!
