dude, in may if you want to stop by milwaukee, WI, eric & i will be living out there by then. we've got an extra futon.
Wow I didn't know you were moving out there. When are you leaving?

Avaino Coffee- 955 Lincoln St (Uses Intelli)

Fluid Coffee- 501 E 19th Ave (Uses Novo- big Clover Selection)

Both are right downtown. I recommend you check if the Rockies are playing too. Their games are cheap to attend and lots of fun. Plus tons of great restaurants in the LODO area by the stadium.
Congrats and have fun on the Honeymoon road trip!
Kentucky...go to a bourbon distillery (no not that bourbon). Even if you don't like whiskey it is still a good time. Woodford reserve was my favorite.
Thanks! Keep the Ideas flowing!
Billy, we're 1/2-way between St Louis & Tulsa, right off of I-44 in Springfield, MO. Love to have you stop in the shop (The Coffee Ethic). I see PT's is already on your itinerary. They're our roasters/trainers/friends.
Come to Indy I will make you a great drink! Unfortunately I am closed on Sundays, but if you are here Monday stop in!

When in Louisville http://www.raysmonkeyhouse.com/ and http://www.lavidajava.com/

drive down I80 stop in Lincoln, NE and get some coffee! let us know and we'll schedule a cupping.
If you are on I-80 passing Iowa City, I can promise you a kick ass coffee. Let me know and I'll tell you where to go.
Any amazingly fun things to do on the way?
Get thee to Boulder, CO and Ozo Coffee: 5340 Arapahoe Ave
Boulder, CO 80303 and while in the Loveland, CO area, drive up the road to Rocky Mountain National Park. It's not too far. Eat breakfast at a little dive called Meadow Mountain Cafe in Allenspark, CO (on the road between Estes Park and the highway down to Boulder.

Congrats, too, btw!

If your route from Mesa Verde is over Highway 70, then ignore, but if you're coming up 25 through CO. Springs, stop by Pikes Peak and Garden of the Gods. Amazing. Good breakfast at Adams Mountain Cafe in Manitou Springs, adjacent to Garden of the Gods.
