In case you need an even bigger kick to the sense in the morning than just your regular jolt of caffeine, Columbia Street Roastery now has a Whiskey Barrel Aged Espresso Blend, aged in Buffalo Trace barrels. The CSR website describes the brew as a "creamy, smooth bodied espresso with flavor notes of peaches, buttery toast, white tea followed by a sweet liquor aftertaste." They recommend serving it up with some steamed milk. 

Also, if you are a flavored coffee sort of person (I am), their new summer seasonal flavors are out. There's a Hawaiian Hazelnut that is speaking to me.

You can easily place an order online and pick it up in store. Or, if you need to do a little browsing, their retail space is open now.
