SO Espresso

I had my first real single origin espresso yesterday courtesy of the folks over at Elysian. I was told I would be given something “special”. Not knowing what I was getting, I was impressed with the shot when Matti handed it to me. Beautiful balance across the shot. Lots of fruit in the little ACF demitasse. I thought it might have been a tweaked blend that they had running. But then I’m shown the bag. It was Novo’s Adado Espresso. Holy crap guys, it was good. Then I had a short americano to accompany my trip to the liquor store up the hill and all you could smell were those Kettle Valley Organic Blueberry bars… Very, very good stuff.

Also, I saw Danny Howells, one of my all-time favorite DJs, last night at Celebrities. If you are at all interested in seeing an amazing house DJ play a show, check him out.

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.
