Sabbath Coffee Roasters made a snowy Sunday morning extra special!
I visited the coffee house based in downtown Clawson over the Thanksgiving weekend, after the first real snow of the season. I was up early that Sunday and in the mood for some coffee shop time. So I headed to the locally-owned shop that roasts its own beans and serves coffee, tea, and espresso drinks – including a very dreamy-looking frozen oat milk latte. (It’s served from a frozen drink machine: the creamy, caffeinated version of a slushie.)
Walking into the tiny shop, I realized there was no seating; it’s carryout only. I was bummed – but still excited to try one of Sabbath’s cappuccinos. I ordered one with oat milk and savored its creaminess and rich espresso flavor as I headed out into the snowy landscape. It was a picturesque scene: sparkling white and quiet – the perfect backdrop for a piping-hot beverage.
Something I really appreciated about Sabbath – besides that tasty cappuccino – was the fact that the barista who made it took the time to engage in conversation with me. She asked me what I had planned for the day, seemed genuinely interested in what I had to say, and shared her plans, as well. It was a refreshing moment of connection that brightened my day – and reminded me that it doesn’t take much to positively connect with others. So thank you for that, my Sabbath barista friend!
Speaking of connection and community: what a hard week this past one was in Metro Detroit. Thinking about everyone experiencing the tragedy in Oxford and sending you love. May you have a caring community of supporters around you, to walk with you through this terrible time.
