It was perfect ! No matter what you ordered. A taste of heaven indeed. Just slightly bitter, not heavy coffee. Very light but flavorful. The flavor was deep but light.
Im sure it was 100pct arabica rather then robusta.
NObody has since equalled them. They have closed down now. No idea where they went.
Ueshima has three locations in Taipei, but not on Zhongshanbeilu. I walk by the one on Dunhua all the time but have never gone in. Japanese coffee doesn't really beckon me. Maybe I should give it a try. Do you remember the name of the coffee you had, tommy?
