Where? Los Angeles, CA.
How do you take your coffee? What brand is it? Black…Pantone 4C Black. I grind and brew Intelligenstia Black Cat Espresso almost exclusively, though I’ll occasionally switch over to Stumptown’s roasts to mix things up. I’ve also started to add one part roasted cacao beans for every 6 parts coffee beans before grinding, which I highly recommend for chocolate lovers.
Tell me about your coffee cup. My friends Angie and Ted of Poketo gave me this coffee cup as a gift, a mug I truly love and that reflects my affinity for that most simple of life’s pleasures, the donut.
What happens if you skip your morning coffee? I’m pretty immune to the effects of caffeine (I enjoy a cup after dinner), so the 1-2 cups I drink most days of the week are mostly for the pleasure of taste. I don’t suffer from any of the classic symptoms of coffee withdrawal, but I do get flummoxed if forced to drink tea in the morning instead of coffee when we run out (no offense to tea, but I prefer it in the afternoon). Bean > leaf!
