1) From: Jeffrey Dobrowski
Before you discount your tasting abilities you should try some really  
good coffee.  I only know one place I can go in town.  Scratch  
that... One place I can go.  That is to javaj (I won't say the  
city).  Nowhere else can I get good coffee.  I mean nowhere.  98% of  
the coffee I encounter isn't potable.  It is very hard to find the  
best coffee's in the world in a coffee shop.  I would guess that most  
coffee shop owners don't know what good coffee is.  There are a few I  
suppose.  when you have good coffee you can drink it without  
anything.  Straight up.  You need to hide or mask nothing.  You'll  
consider extracting the beans with your saliva and grinding with your  
teeth.  I have been to many coffee shops and I have maybe been to  
three where the coffee is good and only one where the coffee is the  
best on a consistent basis.  When you find the best coffee you'll  
know it.  It hits you and you can't deny it.  I could drink espresso  
at my favorite shop until I puked and I would still come back the  
next day.  I just had the best coffee of the ethiopians I have ever  
had in my life yesterday.  I am not saying that there isn't better,  
just that this is the best so far of this region for me.  When you  
find it, it haunts you.  You'll dream about it, talk to everyone  
about it, you'll smell it in hallways, scheme ways to make money to  
buy more.  With really great coffee you can taste everything.  The  
water, the cup, the tamp, the grind, the espresso machine, the water  
pressure and sometimes even what they cleaned the machine with.  So  
even if you find one of the greatest roasters or coffee shop that  
uses one of the greatest roasters your barista could have an off  
day.  Coffee is so fragile.  Until you find this do not end your  
search or give up on your taste buds cuz I have felt the same way.
Sorry if I went a little over board.  I read over this after I wrote  
it and I think I sound a little nuts, but I thought I'd stay true to  
myself and post it,
jeff

I'm curious as to why you won't say the city if it's that good?

Also I want to put in here that there may be better coffee somewhere  
but just not that I have found or that I can go.  I am sure if I  
traveled I could find another place I would love.
angelo look for my last post without a subject as it has the answer  
to your question in it.
