Brian W. Jones is a busy man. The popular author of Dear Coffee, I Love You, a multitalented designer, an honorary Swede, part of Supersonic Coffee and a NCC team member, he’s heavily involved with the worlds of coffee and design, and particularly where they intersect. Starting now and in the immediate future, he will be wearing his coffee and Swede hats, riding a beautiful Volvo up and down the West Coast of the USA, stopping to enjoy (and document!) the coffees and coffee shops on the way.
As a way to celebrate the both country where I was born and the country I now call home, DCILY has partnered with Volvo to combine these characteristic icons of Swedish life with one from America—epic road trips. Over the next two weeks, I’ll be driving a 2015.5 Volvo V60 T5 Drive-E along the west coast of the United States. I’ll be visiting some of the most well known coffee shops and searching for lots of hidden gems along the way. From Los Angeles to Vancouver and back again—arriving just in time for the Big Western Barista Competition in Rancho Mirage.
