Life’s too short to drink crap coffee

The next best thing after wine is coffee. I am an absolute coffee snob, I can tell you where the nearest roasteries are within a 20km radius of my office. I drink it black, no sugar. I’m hardcore 🙂

So when I was invited to a coffee tasting by word of mouth agency, Have you Heard, of course I said yes. We were treated to an evening of tea, coffee and baked goods tasting. I love tea too, in fact, I’m a chain tea drinker at work and I have a coaster which plugs in like a USB and keeps my tea warm.

The two most important things I learned from this evening is 1) Rooibos we get in tea bags tastes nothing like the honey-deliciousness they brewed for us at O’ways Tea Café Claremont, and 2) Cape Town bloggers are pretentious, I hope to never be one (in that sense).

Then they brought out the most amazing brewing machine! It looks like something you would find in Dexters Laboratory and was a marvel to watch! This is extreme coffee brewing, and I’m so getting one for Christmas!

 

Is this machine not amazing?

The baked goods I was tempted with. Rule 1 in journo: distrust those who feed you
