Coffee Talk

St. Louis’s City Foundry needs a coffee place. Got a decent mocha from the waffle joint but could not track down plain old coffee.

The strongest coffee this side of Cafe du Monde may be at Half and Half in Clayton. It’s good but damn strong.

Best restaurant coffee enjoyed lately was at Kingside in the CWE and Annie Gunn’s in Chesterfield Valley. Both serve Dubuque Coffee which is not from Iowa but from Brentwood.

It seems less tacky for Starbucks to raise prices than for them to increase the number of stars required for rewards. Although raising prices as often as they do is a bit tacky.

Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz prefers his coffee black says a WSJ article about black coffee fans having long waits for their basic brew while baristas fill complex drink orders at Starbucks and Dunkin’.

Two of the best cups of coffee I’ve had in recent times were enjoyed last September and December in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward from the walk-up window at Onesto restaurant. (They just closed the walk-up window which they said was a pandemic thing.)

Although we have some excellent roasters here in town, I have been ordering dark roast whole beans lately from Vermont Artisan coffee. Quality products and quick order fulfillment.
