Giv (yes, no E) Coffee was a random lucky find, a recommendation from a customer who overheard me asking about new coffeehouses while I was at Coffee Pedaler in New Haven, CT.

Canton, CT, was about 30 minutes off my fastest route to Albany, but the detour was well worth it to try their excellent roast in a homey, warm space.

I had to rush off to Albany, so I could not stick around and chat further with the owner about their coffee, and other area coffeehouses, but I do hope that I can return to Giv at some point.
