👋 Megan here! Like many of you, I require a daily cup of coffee to kick-start my day.

  • Wednesdays are hard. So I'll be bringing you occasional recommendations for some of the best, and most unique, caffeinated drinks to get you past that midweek slump.

We're starting with Drippy's Coffee, a new truck on West Grayson Street near Pearl.

  • There's no shortage of cute coffee trucks in this growing area, but Drippy's already stands out.

Zoom in: I tried a basic drip coffee and a seasonal latte called The Pollinator.

  • The drip tasted more like a pour-over, with distinct flavor notes of plum and honey. The barista told me it was a single-origin coffee from Nicaragua.
  • The Pollinator is flavored with lavender and local honey. It was a perfect, slightly sweetened and very smooth pick-me-up that avoided crossing into "candy coffee" territory.

The bottom line: It's worth going out of your way for this truck's unique drinks and well-done basics.
