EXO ROASTING CO



Happy National Coffee Day! Truth be told, I didn't actually remember that today was such a big holiday (well, in my book, that is!) until I looked on Instagram and saw tons of coffee photos filling  up my feed. Well, that and my Facebook memory that popped up from last year's national holiday-- which, on a side note, I'm not much of a Facebook person, but lately I've really been enjoying seeing my memories pop up here and there. Anyways, when Scott and I were on our way home from Wilcox the other weekend we decided to stop in Tucson to grab a quick lunch (eegee's to the rescue!), and also a much needed coffee at a local shop we had heard a lot about -- Exo Roast Co!







Exo Roasting Co had been on our radar for awhile now, but since we don't make it down to Tucson often, we decided to make it a priority and head there after hearing about it online so much. The coffee shop itself is in the raddest old building, complete with the most beautiful stained glass window and a faded out "market" sign from the past. Exo is a no frills kind of shop, though, so their coffee menu is short and houses just the basics, but their in-house roasted coffee is all kind of amazing and they serve a mean iced coffee. Most of you know that I'm a black coffee kind of gal, but every once and awhile I like to spice things up -- like adding a few pumps of pumpkin spice syrup or going full out with something delicious like Peixoto Coffee's Maple Almond Cold Brew (a new addition to their menu, but super simple to their ever-so popular Coconut Cold Brew)! I have a feeling that my hazelnut coffee + creamer coffee loving friend, Tieka, would LOVE Peixoto's sweet drinks. ;)

How is tomorrow the last day of September? It's seriously so hard to believe! Today, this past week, this whole month, really, has just been so busy -- all good things, though. I have been finding myself crashing way early every night -- like still in all my clothes and laying on top of the bed, haha -- so maybe it's time to take a step back and relax a little bit more. But really, what's the fun in that? I was raised with such a go, go, go type of personality that I find it so hard (and frankly, kind of boring) to slow down most days. Anyways, I hope ya'll have a wonderful day tomorrow! Talk soon!
