In an age of artisanal ice and ludicrous infusions, it’s nice to have a well-made classic. And no one does the classic Irish Coffee like the Buena Vista Cafe in San Francisco. They perfected the recipe back in 1952, and they haven’t changed it since. We stopped by to see how one is made.



1. Fill your glass with hot water, then dump it out.




2. Add two sugar cubes.




3. Pour coffee until the glass is 3/4 full.




4. Stir to dissolve.




5. Add a full jigger of Irish Whiskey.




6. Top with lightly whipped whipping cream by pouring gently over a spoon.




7. Enjoy.

Timex-MK1-Chronograph-Black-IF2

[Shop]  The original Timex Military Watch was designed based on two things: ruggedness and simplicity. Ruggedness to stand up to the demands of a soldier, and simplicity so the time could be grasped with a passing glance. That doesn’t mean such a watch couldn’t receive some updates, however. This is the MK1 Chronograph, a reimagining of the original military watch. Now packed with a chronograph, this Timex still allows for easy readability, only now you can use it as a stopwatch as well. Built with a robust aluminum case that’s strong yet light and a double-layer black slip-through band, the Timex MK1 Chronograph is as comfortable and stylish as it is dependable.
