I captured part of the process while the barista was making my coffee and I must say that I received in a white ceramic cup, a delicious Mocaccino, with the perfect point of acidity, bitterness and sweetness. I enjoyed this coffee divinely, knowing that it was made in such a beautiful and elegant machine and that I was able to witness such an interesting process, which requires important knowledge and technique.
As we stepped inside, I was pleasantly surprised by the café's ambience. They offer spacious outdoor seating with comfortable tables and chairs. The outdoor area is shaded by a tall mango tree, providing a refreshing and breezy atmosphere.
In addition to the cosy garden-style exterior, there's also a koi pond with gently flowing water.
A beautiful coffee shop, with a bohemian air, full of warm colours and at the same time with a very chic touch, beautifully illuminated and with a lot of personalities. From the moment you enter you can tell that the place has a unique distinction.
Once inside, the decor hit me, slap bang between the eyes! Brick wallpaper?? Who would have something like that up? Then I remembered I had something similar in my bathroom. Anyway, moving on, I think I'd call the cafe a 'greasy spoon' but a lot cleaner and the lady behind the counter was lovely.
As I watched their homemade, literal way of making coffee, I was reminded of the machines in the strangest coffee shops I have ever visited. I think the most striking was the coffee mill that De la casa Gormert in Venezuela's capital.
Arriving at the place, I asked for a black coffee, hence the title a little black one in the center. We must be very careful, because many people think that American coffee is the same as black coffee and it is not so, from my point of view, to make American coffee, it must come from an Espresso, that is why I like black coffee for being less strong.
My girlfriend and I celebrated one more month together, adding another chapter to our adventure making a total of 15 months of dating and being a couple, which for us is a reason to celebrate, and we always like to go out and enjoy the day doing anything, whether eating, walking, shopping or as I like, with a delicious coffee.
Good company is key for the coffee to have a good aroma and taste, today I am with my family, we are discussing some adventures in our lives, from a movie, our jobs and even samples of upcoming goals, including the menu.
For the roaster to work at its best it is important that in addition to the daily care that we must observe in its cleaning, it should not be recharged with too much coffee so as not to affect the roasting and that the temperature should also be regulated according to the variety of the bean, the latter was the cause of the overheating of the resistance.
The biggest one, which is the only electric one, is the one we use the least because it is for 12 people and to be honest I don't know how to make coffee very well or I have to use too much to get it right. But Yeila is there for the holidays with several friends to help everyone enjoy their own way of making this drink.
