While I don’t always take the time to drink coffee as good as this, there is no better way to start my day than with a cup of coffee and time to scan the headlines of the day, even the increasingly asinine headlines coming from south of the border can’t disrupt this essential routine. I’ve tried other morning routines with mixed results, getting out of bed and immediately doing burpees is best left to the Jacko Willink’s of the world.
The picture above is of Ink’s “Kuroshio House Blend” (墨咖啡）. I’m not a fan of blends in general and prefer single origin, particularly almost anything from Kenya. This was ok, less bitter than most of the roasts found in PEI but perhaps not as good as other varieties they produce.
I received a healthy supply of coffee beans from two of my favorite roasters this Christmas, it’s still a surprise that such great coffee can be found in Hsinchu and other cities throughout Taiwan. This should make for an enjoyable to start to the new year.
