I was thinking maybe my coffee tastes had changed, gone to the dogs. Every coffee I bought was underwhelming… usually too bitter, some dull, was it me?
well, I had a really superb coffee on Sunday, at the Kingston Bus Depot Markets! It was from a trestle set up at the entrance nearest the glassworks (near the office). They had a bit of cloth stuck up on the wall with The Outpost on it, and it was staffed by two young kids who seemed pretty happy with things. The chap discarded the first draw and started again. It was a flat white, and wow, it was good. Incredibly dense and creamy brown foam-stuff, and a lovely rich coffee, bitter and body balanced perfectly. I’ve no idea what beans they used, but they must have been good, and the young chap even better.
So I figure there must still be good coffee around the place. Where’s the good stuff? And, dob in the bad stuff!
