Cyclocross Worlds is coming. It's in the US and it's kind of a big deal.
|totally unrelated, here's me, cowbell in the foreground, running up at Alpinerose.|
A lot of people are headed out to spectate and it's going to be cold. 30's and potentially snowing. I thought I'd put together some coffee tips to help you keep warm and caffeinated while you ring cowbells, screaming at Katie Compton and Jonathon Page.
Quills Coffee - Just a couple miles from the Worlds venue, Quills downtown location is a short bike ride away and known for their pourover coffee program. (which you know I love) 930 Baxter Avenue (502) 742-6129 quillscoffee.com Quills is a multi-location joint, so, depending on where you're staying, look em' up.
Sunergos Coffee - The newest downtown location of Sunergos is within walking distance of the Cylocross park. 231 South 5th Street (502) 589-3222 www.sunergoscoffee.com This location features Seattle's fabled Slayer espresso machine and multiple espresso offerings. A while back this nice blog about them popped up: http://www.thecoffeecompass.com/concept-espresso-bar-louisville-sunergos/
Also a multi-location business so look for the one that's on your way to the park in the morning.
Cafe Classico - For a delicious espresso. cafe-classico.com
Looking into eat and drink around Louisville I came across a couple other things you should know about. Here some more places within minutes of Bandman park.
