In fact, I not only appreciate it I adore it.
There's nothin' like a nice warm, smooth, slightly bitter, slightly sweet espresso.
One of my first jobs was as a Barista for Starbucks. When I started I was a young pup who "didn't drink coffee". By the time I felt I became a connoisseur and coffee snob---proudly.
Living in Portland there are quite a few coffee shops I can choose from. All of which have their pro's and con's.
Well, one day I was at the Portland Public Market.getting so yummy soup from Karmasouptra and I glanced over and saw Cubano con Leche at Rock City Coffee.
I was so excited I could barely stand it! Cubano con Leche is Cuban Espresso with sugar and steamed milk.
You may think this sounds like a latte with sugar BUT, it is so much more than that. It is pure heaven.
I didn't order coffee that day because I was in a rush. So for a solid week I couldn't stop thinking about how amazing this coffee must be. A part of me knew that if they had Cubano con Leche on their menu it MUST be amazing! Finally, the day of happiness came.
I ordered Cubano con Leche and it lived up to the hype.
It was pure bliss.
I think I filled up my stamp card in less than 2 weeks.
Since then I have ordered other drinks and tried some of my friends drinks like Horchata with a shot of espresso and they have all been DELICIOUS!
I highly recommend Rock City Coffee.
10 outta 10!
