Today I drank my first cup of coffee. There, I said it. As a food blogger, I am a bit ashamed to admit this fact, as I am surrounded by a world wide web of latte lovers and coffee adicts alike. Have no fear though, I have jumped on the coffee bandwagon, and I am now permenantly along for the ride.
Early Wednesday morning, my dad and I were driving down mainstreet when we came across a, as my dad put it, “very hipster coffee shop.” No foodie should ever dismiss an opportunity to visit a café, so my dad and I pulled in to check it out.
The shop is called Flatlands, and all of the coffee there is of the highest quality, brewed individually to create a coffe experience, if you will. My dad and I decided to each try and different brew and exchange tastings of each other’s to get the full flavor profile of Flatlands artisinal coffee. I am now convinced that the reason I did not care for coffee in the past is because, before Flatlands, I had never tasted a cup of such excellent quality. The flavor was strong and earthy, with a slight hint of cocoa. I drank my entire order and was nearly bouncing off the walls from the caffine. Now I understand why people say they need caffine to function in the morning!
The ambiance of the brewery added to my excursion, and I am already planning to visit the shop tomorrow morning!
If you ever find yourself in Bowling Green, Ohio, make sure to give Flatlands a try. Feel free to invite me to join you as well ;).
Now tell me…
- Are you a coffee drinker?
- Black coffee or cream and sugar?
