Guitar and coffee does have something in common!

So a lot of you know me and know that I love coffee! Years ago it was widely known that musicians and beer go well together. Not that it still doesn’t, but now coffee and musicians have a strong connection.

A lot of my musician friends are hip and drinking coffee and espresso drinks is a hip thing to do. So they do mix pretty well. Plus I really believe coffee brings out happiness in people. Probably because of the caffeine content. 🙂

I have this saying.. Set back, relax, and have a cup of coffee.  Especially on days that I’m feeling low, coffee is a great perk.

So with all that said, I love going to coffee houses and trying different drinks, espressos, and pour-over type coffee. Some of my favorites in Nashville TN area are Roast Inc. Crema, Frothy Monkey, and Just Love Coffee in Murfreesboro.

Today I visited a new coffee shop in East Nashville as a referral by one of my coffee buddies, Ian Riley. The new place is called Barista Parlor. Twila was there too, of course!

They have a really cool set up in what appears to be and old garage. The tables are made of really pretty hardwoods. The Chemistry of coffee places, Barista Parlor is a top notch place to visit, hang with friends, and buy some really darn good coffee.

Some of there offerings are as follows:
