Nothing gets me writing faster than coffee, so when I saw a headline this morning that Blue Bottle had raised $20M, I leapt to my laptop. I follow the NYC coffee land grab with great interest and cannot wait to see if some of this new money launches more Blue Bottle locations in the city.

In any case, it is delightful to see a business we admire riase such a large round. I raise my cappucino in a toast!
