Today, after seventeen years of setting higher and higher standards, they still continue to champion coffee as part of the culinary experience, from coast to coast, with their trademark unapologetic devotion to the kitchen and not trend – the place where taste always trumps novelty.
This faux-foreign feeling continued when I took a walk through Soho and then down Church Street below Canal. I got a truly mouth-bending coffee at La Colombe Torrefaction. I have no palate and have always been jealous of people who can detect walnuts or lavender or asparagus in their wine or cheese or espresso. For the first time I could honestly taste a flavor besides coffee within the coffee I was drinking. Caramel, maybe.
