I'm really sad to be leaving today. The faces I got to know in the hotel are not going to be a part of my daily routine anymore. Ali, Aran, Joseph, Luca, and everyone will be part of this great and tiring memory. I ate the cookies Rachel gave me for breakfast but I needed something savory so had my last beans on toast with eggs and cheese. Ali was sweet to show me pictures of his home town I Morocco. It's really hard to say goodbye.

I'm sad. Today is my last coffee adventure in London. It will be weird to not get up early in the morning with fantasies of my next coffee find. I don't have a lot of time because I have to be back by to meet with Jen at 10:30 am and then catch my shuttle to the hotel at 11:15 am. I have to do this though. I have read so much about this coffee roasters that I would be upset if I didn't try it. It was rated the best in London! It's my duty as a coffee connoisseur!

Well today is my last coffee trip in London and I think it was the one I was looking the most forward to, Ozone Coffee Roasters. It is exactly as I thought it was going to be gray minimalist design with an attractive staff and a real love for all things coffee. So I will keep the colors on this post to a minimum. The coffee is pretty damn amazing and the woodneck method is making thing about switching over at work. It's just more elegant and I think I can keep the excess warm on my hot plate. So let it be known that hipsters have reached England and the coffee culture is more than alive here.

It's amazing to see London's evolution from a tea to coffee. I'm sure Londoners are still heavy tea drinkers but the coffee culture has slowly taken it over. My last two trips to London coffee shops were all chains for the most part. It's how I fell in love with Caffe Nero. Now you find local coffee shops almost everywhere. It's so cool because now they are starting to roast their own coffee. I have been so lucky to try a lot of coffee shops here. Some good and some bad. However along the way, I have to say that I really enjoyed all of the unique and funny coffee signs that were out. You gotta love British humor.

Well it's official. I am going home. This is all bittersweet because I did have fun, but working Flynn really took it out of me. He is absolute pain in the ass and he made this harder. But I think the aggravation was all worth it because I got to come back to London. Even with all of the changes, it really is my second home. It will always be part of me. So in the end I think I look kindly on my time here because London is a part of the fabric that made me today.

Thanks London.
