R.I.P. Ruta Maya

What the hell? I leave for a couple of weeks and return to find my coffee shop all boarded up!

Boarded up

Ruta Maya served fair trade coffee, obscure (and often excellent) microbrewed beers, and a tasty (although arguably overpriced) lunch. Add free wifi and the fact that they were basically right across the street from work and you had an excellent "home away from home".

My co-workers and I spent many an afternoon working from what became referred to as the "Martin Street Office"...and now it's gone.
