Let’s talk about it:  If you don’t get coffee right…it’s horrible. Luckily, London is close to Europe and is not all Americanised Carmel cold whatever…

I hate to be blunt, but if it takes you 10 minutes to order your coffee, you’re in it for the wrong reason.

Coming from the States I never actually was given the opportunity to have good coffee. It just was not an issue. Many Americans think they have it well; in fact, they don’t.

Europeans have been doing coffee for years and they do it right.

We in the States have taken a Mexican burrito and put it in a vat of grease and now we have a Chimichanga… get my drift?
