Reading Helen Mirren’s “In the Frame” at The French Press in Lakewood, CO

Photobucket I discovered The French Press in Lakewood, CO while staying in the Hampton Inn Denver West Federal Center. The coffee shop is a short walk across the parking lot.  

I loved the Mountain Gold Rooibus Red loose tea with orange and cinnamon flavors that lingered on the back of my throat. The friendly staff member suggested I tried a new dessert called a brioche with chocolate custard. The custard of this yummy dessert contained chocolate chips!

I sipped my hot tea and began reading British actor Helen Mirren’s autobiography “In the Frame." The book is very interesting, with many documented letters and photos of her childhood, family, and career. It’s not your usual Hollywood tell all book. My Kup Kap kept my tea hot as I read about this fascinating lady.
