Whoa, it's not even noon yet, and I'm already hurting!

Back in the mid-2000s, I routinely wisited 15-20 Starbucks in a day, for multiple days running, when in California, to keep up with their growth, but after the 2008/2009 Purge, growth slowed down so much that I didn't have to do that anymore.

Well, Starbucks U.S. is growing again, and because it has been a year and a half since I last clear out California, the number of stores I need to wisit is almost what it used to be.

Add to that indie shops, like Mostra Coffee, and my tolerance for caffeine is being tested. I almost skipped Mostra because of how much trouble I had sleeping last night, but I'm glad I popped in, because they served me up a REALLY good cup of joe.

The totally belong on that list of essential San Diego coffee roasters, and I look forward to returning (hopefully with fewer Starbucks to wisit).
