Key West Coffee & Weather

15 July 2010 | Key West Down Town
Shirl/Summer
Snoozer and I took a drive to Key West and had a great day sight seeing. I have found that there are new sights to see no matter how many times you have visited. It is connected to the saying" only in Key West"... meaning there are many strange and fun things to see.
Local tip... wear rubber shoes. Because when it rains in Key West the water gets very deep very fast.

One of the best stops was Baby's Coffee, the southernmost coffee roaster in America .

The story is:
Late, last century (circa 1991), Gary & Olga. left the Big Bad Apple (NY), looking for a home for their new coffee roasting company. They set up shop in a small building on the uptown side of Key West's famed Duval Street. In the 1920's, an old Cuban family had owned this building and christened it "Baby's Place", after the family's youngest son. "Baby" Rodriguez grew up and ran a cantina there where, legend has it, Ernest Hemingway indulged in the occasional crapshoot with locals, known as "conchs". Inspired, Gary and Olga. adopted the Baby's name and let the dice roll one more time.
