Today I went to Ponce City Market in search of fun times and good coffee. I found two coffee places in the food court: Revelator and Spiller Park. This was a set up for a Double Feature on my Quest for Coffee.
For Revelator, I decided to try pour over coffee. It took some time, but watching the process was like watching a chemistry experiment. It was bold and brought an old sense to my mind. The image that came to me was a basement coffeehouse styled like a neighborhood bar.
Spiller Park had flavors from Ethiopia and Kenya, and they were pricey. I went with the cheapest one, Gedeb from Ethiopia. I went with the pour over, since the last one went well. I found that it was the same as the coffee I had at Hodgepodge: same flavor, same image. I mean, it was still good, but it disappointed me because I could get the same thing at Hodgepodge for cheaper.
So, I found that pour over coffee has more intense flavor. I think I’m one step closer to finding out what makes a good cup of coffee.
