Bad Coffee on National Coffee Day

Posted on September 29, 2011 at 12:09pm 4 Comments

Do any of you ever need coffee but you don't have time to go where you know the good stuff is or it's to far away?  Most likely not, because the majority of you are Baristas and working in the industry.


That was me today, and on a coffee lovers holiday!  I don't work in the coffee industry, but for me coffee is passion; a daily passion that takes me all over my city seeking out my black gold.


Today was interesting....


I woke up only to realize…


This week in coffee, for me at least. (Week of 4/2/11)

Well, my coffee week was very very good.   On Tuesday I continued my search for Espresso in Cincinnati.   This time my quest took me to Cafe` de Paris on Garfield Place in downtown Cincinnati.  It was a nice little lunch date for my wife and I.   We orders some food and it was great, and of course we ordered coffee as well.  Reviews of this place where pretty good, and I had read a few comments about how good the espresso was.  I ordered a double and the wife ordered a cappuccino.  The capp…

So, I think I have finally done it.   I am consistently able to produce micro foam!  Its not a 50/50 foam to milk ratio, I would guess it to be more like 30/50 foam to milk or a little less. But it sure tastes good!  Oh and I can't pour any thing that would be called art at this time. Although, it always looks pretty to me.  I think when its called coffee, it always looks good.

My first day will be Tuesday. I'm finishing out my last weekend at Findlay Market. However that should in no way stop you from stopping in —I'll just have to catch you on the following week.
