A friend of mine saw that I was on a quest for good coffee, so he invited me to HodgePodge. We each had our own coffee while we chatted about life in general; he had a latte and I had drip with the usual.
It started off bitter to me, but the taste got better with each sip. Bitterness turned to boldness; it almost had a wild quality to it. The image that came to me was that of a jungle with coffee beans as large as papayas hanging off the trees. One of these days I have got to start drawing out these images.
I believe I might be back on track with finding unique and meaningful coffee.
Oh, and I’ve got news! So, my favorite Food Network chef, Alton Brown, has plans to open a coffee shop in Marietta. No one knows when it’s going to open, but I feel like it’ll be the ultimate highlight of my Quest for Coffee. Someday, someday.
