Posted to Amanda's Angle by Kyle Jost

The Truckee Community Pool teamed up with Drink Coffee Do Stuff to start selling coffee again.  Pre-COVID, the Truckee Community Pool had killer concessions.  The grilled cheeses on Truckee Sourdough bread were perfect, crunchy on the outside, soft and cheesy on the inside.  The smoothies were healthy and delicious.  I could feed the family after an evening swim for a good price and come home to a clean kitchen.   But the real thing I sook out, day after day, was the staff coffee.
