Snowy Plover, Andytown Coffee Roasters; San Francisco, CA.
Baristas at Andytown Coffee Roasters create their signature cocktail by pouring a shot of espresso over an absinthe spoon of brown sugar to create a sweet, caffeinated syrup. The blend is then poured over iced sparkling water and topped with a dollop of whipped cream for a bubbly treat named after the area's shorebirds.

They even share post-coffeetime clean up tips, like brightening old coffee mugs with vinegar!
