Maybe I am an espresso person

So, yesterday I finally made it down to the Elysian for an espresso. I think I breathed a sigh of relief when I found I really enjoyed the espresso when I was able to ponder it’s complexity and substance. Fortunately too, I was able to look at it from a critical eye and see it’s faults too (which I am not blaming at all on anyone… apparently the finish had been a bit rough all day). See, I had been worried about my palate having to readjust itself to nuance in coffee. After a summer of typically lower complex coffee it’s extremely tough for me to begin tasting coffees in Vancouver that are small production, complex cups. Maybe I will get back into the world of espresso!

On tap

49th Parallel El Salvador La Montaña
Excellent coffee for everyday drinking. Well expressed acidity and classic El Salvador profile.

Bulleit Bourbon
By far the best bourbon available in BC for the price. $35 for a bottle gets you the highest rye content bourbon on the market. Lots of spice and typical bourbon corn sweetness. Excellent on its own, but also makes a mean Old Fashioned. Better than Knob Creek in my books and pretty close to Woodford Reserve.
