My my my. Did we ever need our coffee this morning.

Sometimes we forget that coffee's not always just this wonderful, pleasurable, leisurely thing. And when we need it, boy do we ever. What may serve us on a weekend clearly may not be appropriate for the workday and vice versa.

"Quality" when one needs to be in the office for a conference call at 5 a.m., can take a backseat to "availability." "Atmosphere" pales in comparison to "convenience."

How lucky then, downtown San Francisco, that we have a great mixture of the four in On The Go Espresso -- a great coffee kiosk for those working near the One Market/Ferry Building/Embarcadero/Rincon Center part of downtown. (You know, there must be a better way to describe this area. Sorry, we were up since the crack of dawn. Brain hurting.)
