You know what I realised after my last post? I think I am yet to write something purely on coffee, thus I have decided to tell you all about a coffee I had the other day.
For those who know me, 'a coffee I had the other day' is pretty ambiguous, because I am a bit of an addict, but this was different! It was filter coffee and it was kind of amazing. I think when describing it to Nageena I said, "You know when a guy is wearing a really subtle cologne, and it makes you just want to have sex with them? It tasted like that!"
...Except, it had floral undertones, so not all that manly. Either way, it was incredible and you should all head down to Lowdown (where I got the coffee) to try one :)
I asked Mark, one of the baristas, what filter coffee is and he said "a glorified drip system". Basically, filter paper, grind, water drips through and voila! Or at least, I'm pretty sure that's the gist of it. Of course, for good filter coffee there'd be a whole load of finnicky things that need to be taken care of, but I don't think anyone's going to read this and rush out to make one for themselves, so I won't bother with the research.
The way it's made means you don't need to be a coffee-geek to taste the subtle flavours that scare people on menus in cafes, and it's really easy to drink.
So, on that note - hop to it! At Lowdown, I'm fairly sure it'll only cost $3/$3.50 for a cup, (plus $3.50 for a piece of utterly radtastic Hungarian Cherry Cake), not to mention you have an always willing coffee-drinking companion in yours truly :)
Over and out.
