Blue Bottle Coffee

“Actually, this seems to be the basic need of the human heart in nearly every great crisis – a good hot cup of coffee.” Alexander King

A good hot cup of coffee is how I often start my day.  As soon as I wake up, I go straight to the stove and brew myself a good hot cup of coffee on my Bialetti Moka Express.  Aside from straightening up my wonky days, I love how the room smells after each brewing.

If faced with many choices, I feel like I’m in a candy store and cannot resist the urge to get myself something, “just to try”.   I tend to hoard as A would always tell me.  I know… guilty as charged.  He’d occasionally inspect the cupboard or the freezer and exclaim, “you bought coffee again?”   😕

I take mine black, and prefer it medium roasted.  I don’t like sour or bitter coffee, I prefer mine smooth with a tinge of sweetness at the end.  Does that make me a coffee connoisseur?  Not at all.  I just … love coffee to pieces.

I swore to myself that I’d stop buying until I’ve used up half of my stash but how could I resist this?  It seems like my kind of coffee!

While lining up for my drip coffee (at a stall outside the Ferry Building), I asked a staff, which among all the different kinds displayed would she recommend.  “How do you make your coffee?” she asked.  “I use a Bialetti stove top device”, I answered.  “Do you like your coffee bold, sweet, light?”  she probed some more.  Well… she got me at “how do you make your coffee”.   And that, my friends, was how I ended up with more stash.  And she hit it right on!  It was definitely my kind of coffee.   😀

Blue Bottle.  One of the best I’ve ever tried.  I highly recommend.
