Origin Coffee Roasters
Sometimes I am accused of being a snob.
Sometimes I agree.
I admit that I am a picky man, particularly when it comes to coffee. However, like all whimsical irritants, my tastes constantly change. At times I like or hate all of the following: burnt, sour, smooth, sweet, bitter, milky, black. And if I don’t like it for some reason, I do what any food blogger worth any salt would do. Make something up.
So, bored one day, I decided to spent some more time experiencing the East London coffee culture.
Banana cake. It starts with cake of course. This was a rather solid and heavy block. Sadly, not sweet enough for my tastes.
Latte. Smooth and not bad. However, it was sadly just that. It wasn’t really something special. I could try and mask my feelings with a critique that it just didn’t have the right notes, the heaviness of the water was kind of wrong or instead the latte art didn’t flatter my profile enough.
However, I think I will just be blunt (as some complain I am wont to be) and say, it just wasn’t for me. Let’s leave it at that.
A quiet eating 7/10.
Coffee and a cake was GBP7.
