the best cup of coffee EVER
May 23, 2011
Now I thought Blue Bottle was the best cup of coffee I was ever going to drink. And I still know that it was a damn good cup of coffee. But this simple little cup of Ethiopian coffee was truly a miracle.
When I first ordered it, while I was waiting for it to be freshly brewed, I looked around and noticed that there was no milk or sugar.
I won’t lie. I was scared. But I hadn’t had any coffee that morning so I sucked it up and waiting for my black coffee.
And it was an inspiration. It was sweet and nutty and smooth and lovely. I didn’t need sugar or honey. It didn’t need milk or cream.
A perfect cup of coffee. There is nothing like it in the world.
And now when I taste a cup of coffee and think it needs sugar or cream I think… I need a better cup of coffee.
