Strawberry Day

As the shiny new manager of Capo 20th, I recently found out that I get to take part in this blog. I thought about what to write to you guys all week, really, I looked forward to this. This is it, it's Wednesday, it's my go at the ol' blog. I was at a blank all day, then I realized it's STRAWBERRY DAY. This is a perfect day to start this!

For weeks customers have been coming in, spotting Cactus Pear's vibrant pink color, hoping it was strawberry, and I've had to tell them "Sorry ya'll, a little bit longer!" Not today. Today, I got to greet people rushing in from the rain with a sample of our perfectly textured Strawberry Tequilla Sorbet, and Strawberries and Cream Gelato. It most definitely made this dreary day a little brighter.

For some people, summer starts when they get to go to their first baseball game of the season, others, it's their Memorial Day weekend down the shore. Personally, I look forward to the flavors of summer. Sweet berries mixed with bright, tart lemon is classic. Refreshing and light cucumber, or watermelon is a must. Summer is pretty much the best. If you're like me, and need a good kick in the taste buds to remind you warmer days are ahead, get in here for some of this sweet strawberry action before it's back to pumpkin everything, and Facebook statuses about shoveling snow.

Happy Memorial Day!!

It was a great memorial day with all of my fellow Philadelphians that decided not to hit the beach this year for the holiday. Each cup of cold gelato we served helped to make everyone a little bit more tolerant of the fresh spring heat. Despite being plenty comfortable in our cafe's air conditioned habitat , I still missed the good ole' Jersey shore. My ears were left longing for its stagnant salt water companion. My toes craved the pinch of a crab's claw. My eyes yearned for its sandy souvenir.

Coulda' been in my car
With my towel and guitar
All backed up on the highway for hours

With that being said
You should stay here instead
And enjoy the gelato that's ours

From everyone here at Capogiro, we hope you had a safe and happy holiday!

Cold brew is the only way to fly!

     Let me paint you a picture, its a hot summer morning. As you walk out your front door to greet the day, the sun beats down on your back. Your head is cloudy and your arms feel like noodles. One thing is clear, its coffee time. Only the purest of brown elixirs can cure this summer slump that you've seemed to succumb to. You walk into a nearby coffee shop and the words "One Iced coffee please" slip out of your mouth so effortlessly, the Barista is in awe. He hands you a cup of their finest Iced coffee. Bliss. You float out the door and swoon at the thought of your first sip. The straw reaches your mouth, its almost time. You take a sip and then, Bam! You fall to the ground. The coffee is terrible. Clearly a batch of danky derelict drip passed off as true iced coffee. Blasphemy!
     Sadly this happens to more and more people every day. Don't trust a Capfauxgiro! Come in to Capogiro anytime for a cup of the most delicious cold brewed iced coffee you have ever tried! Its coffee time!
