Intelligentsia Coffee - Espresso Video

Intelligentsia Coffee holds a special place in my heart, so I was excited to learn that they are producing some short videos about various aspects of coffee. I had to post this one. It's a very, very nice piece of work. Enjoy!

I love that he pointed out that you can get into coffee like a wine conossieur would get into wine. That is my life goal! While we are on the subject, I just wanted to share with you, because you will appreciate it, that I had the best mocha of my life the other day. I could literally have licked the cup just to get every morsel of it...but I promise I didn't. The first thing I noticed was how smooth and creamy the foam was. You of all people have heard my complaints plenty of times to know how I feel about foam. The second thing I noticed was this wonderful fruity aroma, almost like the subtle scent of raspberries. The flavor, of course, was through the roof. It was like chocolate covered raspberries, and I can only hope that is not the only mocha-utopia I will ever experience.

P.S. When I told my sister about my mocha (a non-coffee drinker) she laughed at me and taunted me when I ordered another mocha the next day. So

I'm pleased you've found a cup you enjoyed - and have been able to recognize why you enjoyed it!

Don't forget, these guys in the video have a few coffeehouses practically up the road from you. You gotta get there!!!
