Coffee Challenge #3

Monday, February 10, 2014
There is still snow on the ground and more is forecasted to start falling this afternoon. Ugh, come on OKWX, I have never in my life experienced snow that lasted over a week. I will personally punch the first person who tweets about it being too hot this summer....

With sub-freezing temperatures all weekend, we basically had to indulge in more coffee, simply to keep our blood flowing properly. The third stop on Cole & Amanda's OKC Coffee Challenge was Cuppies & Joe... A cute little coffee date at a local hot spot? Don't mind if we do.

Cuppies & Joe is located in Uptown on 23rd Street in the most adorable of bungalow-style houses. It has a "Grandma's house" feel to it; so welcoming and charming with the smell of freshly baked deserts and hot coffee billowing out of the kitchen. It is the place to be on Saturday evenings, lemme tell ya. The line was out the door, a local musician was strumming away and twenty-somethings were piled on top of each other to sip their lattes and socialize in utter hipster fashion.


Upon ordering, we discovered that Cuppies & Joe serves Elemental Coffee.....whoops. That's what I get for not doing my research. Should this eliminate Cuppies & Joe from the Coffee Challenge? Probably. BUT, they take brewed Elemental Coffee and put their own unique twist on it, so I guess they can stay.

The list for latte flavors was just too much to handle; it went on and on and on. I panicked and went with amaretto.....and was very glad that I did. It had the perfect amount of coffee and amaretto flavors mixed to perfection. Not too sweet, not too weak and not too strong, it was juuuust right. Cole ordered a regular ole coffee, black. Weird.

Since it was Saturday night, we felt the need to indulge in deserts, too. Wouldn't you? I mean, it is a cupcake place after all. I ordered the Boom Boom Pow cupcake and ate it way too quickly to take a picture....my sincere apologies. It was a vanilla bean cupcake with chocolate buttercream frosting and an inner dollop of salted caramel. That frosting, man, it was on point. Cole went with the blackberry pie; my life was forever altered. Sugar crystals, blackberries and sweet cream, oh my heavens. It has to be a family recipe passed down for generations...

Cuppies & Joe accepts the Keep It Local card. Your mouth can start drooling here.
