There are a lot of shopping malls in Duluth, and it was there that I found The Coffee by Hand. I was tempted to buy their tasty looking desserts, but I had to remind myself that I was here for coffee. This time around, I went with an Americano. The initial sip burned my tongue, so I had to wait several minutes before I could taste and analyse it.
The coffee tasted fine, and it brought a certain warmth to my heart (after getting past the burning on my tongue), but nothing really stood out. No images came to mind. I think people that don’t like strong coffee would like this.
Like with Amelie’s, I was eventually going to find some rocks after finding gems in my coffee quest. However, I have to wonder how this one coffee was weaker than the others I’ve tasted? Was the roast type or the duration of the brew? I’m leaning more towards the latter.
