When and where did you drink the best cup of coffee you ever had the honor of tasting and swallowing?
Over the weekend I bumped into swallowing a re-branded home-brew coffee-as-manna packaged as “Dark Aroma” at a local bed and breakfast.
The taste of “Dark Aroma” was musty and nutty and just a bit smoky and it made the best cup of coffee I ever had the delight of devouring in nearly a single swallow.
There was no notice of origin for “Dark Aroma” and no one at the bed and breakfast knew anything about its maker or distributor.
“Dark Aroma” has now become a weekend mystery that will remain lost in the shadows of my taste buds while lingering in the afterglow of the sweet and bitter blackness that formed the best cup of coffee… ever!
Have you ever had a memorable cup of coffee? When and where did you find it and were you ever able to recapture the magic again after gulping the first cup?
