A Good Cup o' Joe
Sometimes you want it straight. No cream, no sugar, just black. You know what I'm talkin' about. A great cup of coffee. The way they used to make it in diners all over America. No, you don't want a latte, mocha, frappe, zappe, half caf, skinny, fatty, or any of the other 500 concoctions you can hear daily in your local (are they everywhere?) Starbuck's. When you get in that mood, you want that cup o' joe to be dark, hot, smooth, and not bitter.
I was in Atlanta recently and while I am there, I stay in the Norcross area. Interestingly enough, there is an outlet for a coffee chain from Minnesota, Caribou Coffee near where I stay. I say interesting because I don't equate moose, caribou, and lodge decor with Atlanta, but that is another story. One of the coffees they sell is "Obsidian Dark." It is fantastic. A very dark roast, smooth as can be, and worthy of enjoyment in it's purest form... black. It is truly one of the best coffees I have tasted.
So if you are a real coffee lover, get on with it. Order yourself a pound, and when you get it, grind some fresh, make it in your french press and enjoy one of the best cups of coffee you'll ever have.
