Tasting notes from around the table… dark chocolate (capp) … celery (mach) … some sort of tropical punch thing (esp) … butterscotch candy (mach)1.
Nicely presented as well. Thanks!
Upon saying this, my table-mates, mouths agape, and eyes wide, said, “did you say ‘butt-scratch candy’?!” A good laugh was had by all. Later, at Sur la Table, via a demo unit operated by a well-meaning salesperson, we actually were served an espresso that had notes of butt-scratch candy. So it was just foreshadowing. ↩
LA’s scrumptious little bakery, Short Cake, is right here, at SO, baked goods literally being produced directly behind the SO staff in what amounts to an outdoor operation. How do they get the crusts on those perfect little apple pies so flaky in that heat?
SO is a Verve account. And a good one. I have that on authority. Trust me.
Damn if every time I meet an employee of Verve, they’re not some the nicest people in the coffee biz.
