Good Coffee Shop in Taichung

Postby headhonchoII » 26 Jul 2012, 07:40

Actually I can taste the difference between arabica and robusta, but thats about it at the moment.
I can remember the fourth of July runnin' through the backwood bare.
And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin' chasin' down a hoodoo there
Chasin' down a hoodoo there.

hA MY coffee taste buds are even simpler. It falls only in two categories:

GOOD or NOT GOOD.

If GOOD< then i will order it again . IF NOT GOOD, then i wont.

Im the same with wine.

Yay or Nay

I asked Stanley if Cafe Lulu was still open or if they only did roasting now. He said they're still open. I think you may have Cafe Lulu confused with another cafe. The one I'm thinking of, linked to in the very first post of this thread, is a couple blocks south of Jinhua N. Rd.

I have never had Kopi Luwak, nor do I ever want to. By all accounts it's a gimmick coffee anyway. The hoopla is all about the rarity and method, not about the taste. None of the shops I've mentioned here would even think about selling it.

Stanley (Sweet Cafe) has a really interesting iced coffee. He brews it for 24 hours in one of those slow-drip towers, then he puts it in the fridge for about a week. It has a smokey, alcohol-like flavor. I had something like it first at a coffee shop in Fengyuan, but Stanley's is less bitter than that one. It's worth it just to try it.
