Coffee conundrum continues in a coffee klatch

Having attempted to taste-test a kilo of coffee — Commencement Bay to Batdorf and Bronson to Valhalla to Forza to Stumptown to whole bunch more beans that all seem to blend together after five or 10 cups — my palate and my kidneys are stumped.

Coffee’s a personal preference. The chasm between my definition of “room for cream” and Starbucks’ definition of “room for cream” is about as wide as a set of hips with a three-Frappuccino-a-day habit.




Nice words.

What the heck do they mean in your mouth?

And what is “coffee” anymore? The brew in the urn? Double-shot Americanos? Something with whipped cream on top?

Who roasts your favorite beans? Who brews your favorite cups?

Need room for cream?
