More on Grumpy

As you know Chris O. and I are fans of Cafe Grumpy here on this side of the East River, and we took advantage of this beautiful summer day to make the fifteen minute walk up north to visit our friends this afternoon. The owners Chris and Caroline were there (as usual) and were gracious enough to spend some time socializing with us, serving up a couple choice items from their current supplier Counter Culture. One of these choice items was a Nicaraguan that Chris served up in a french press. I found the flavor very pleasant and mild, with hints of mollasses and floral notes reminding my vaguely of bittersweet chocolate. My initial reaction was that it would be a great compliment to my breakfast cereal, a nice medium bodied brew that would be a nice way to start the day.

Here's Caroline.

And here's the first Synesso to grace a bar in NY.
