A few months ago, we were invited to an upscale coffee shop in the heart of Brooklyn’s hipster enclave, where we were served a single-serving espresso drink made with espresso beans.
While this is not technically a coffee shop, it’s a place that serves a fair amount of it, and we were in no way disappointed with it.
This is, after all, Brooklyn, and coffee is a big part of our identity.
If you live here, you’ll have heard of it.
So we ordered a few more drinks and the place went from bustling to quiet in a matter of minutes.
After a quick and easy conversation with a bartender, we sat down at the bar and started sipping on our drinks.
A few moments later, the bartender came back to tell us that the food was still good, and that he’d just finished our drinks and had another on the way.
He didn’t even bother to tell me that he was still standing by, and he was the first person to ask about our order.
While I don’t want to sound overly judgmental, I do have to say that this was a strange experience.
While my coffee was fine, I did notice that the espresso was a little on the bitter side, which I find very annoying.
And I think that I would have been more likely to leave a review if it were a real coffee shop rather than just a place where a single serving of espresso can cost as much as $8.
The service was also very good, which was definitely noticeable on a busy night.
We also got to see the owner’s face, which is very nice.
He looked relaxed and had no idea what he was talking about.
The drinks were also really good.
I would definitely go back and try to try something else, and I will definitely be going back to try the coffee from this place.
I’ll definitely be returning for sure.
I’d even go so far as to say I’ll probably buy more coffee if I ever do live here again.
