Austin! We love Austin, and with so many people visiting over the next few weeks for SXSW, we thought we would share some new places and some old faves to help you find your way around. One of our dear friends Adam, who we met on our very first road trip and has joined us for many since, has moved all the way to Austin to flex his coffee skills at Seventh Flag Coffee on South 1st.

Seventh Flag Coffee is housed in an actual house, which is over 100 years old! They're serving up beans from Huckleberry Roasters, and the espresso presentation is super cool: the espresso is accompanied by two tall shot glasses, one with the local Topo Chico water and the other with Tibetan Tiger black tea. 

When it comes to the name Seventh Flag, it's a play on the "six flags" that have flown over Texas (Spain, France, Mexico, Republic of Texas, Confederancy, and the United States). With the seventh flag, they're creating an identity as a country unto themselves living by their themes of "all welcome, all ways" and "our country of friends."
