I had my worst coffee ever today…
I was speaking at Como Baptist and decided to get there early and have a coffee nearby. I won’t name the venue… but its the closest cafe to the church…
There seemed to be a range of gourmet food on offer so I thought a coffee would be a prett safe bet. The packages of Yahava on the wall suggested they took coffee reasonably seriously.
I asked for a mug of flat white.
I got something that looked like an instant with frothy dishwater on top. It tasted worse than it looked and after 1 sip I was done. I pushed it to the edge of the bench hoping a staff member would notice and enquire.
I ended up leaving and watching the waitress pick up the full cup.
I wasn’t sure quite what to do but I figured it wasn’t doing them any favours not to know about it so I wandered back in and let them know I couldn’t drink it because it was so bad.
She promptly asked “Would you like another one?…”
I appreciated the thought, but ‘no thanks’ I said ‘I’ll leave it…’
The guy next to me seemed to be quite happy with what he was drinking. I guess ignorance is bliss…backwoods the dvd download
I cannot but feel a small sense of responsibility for unleashing you upon Perth’s cafes.
And I am well pleased.
Perhaps the gourmet food it offered was as bad as their coffee. Probably best you escaped with only a coffee.
Coffee is like art, what one person enjoys another rejects.
I COMPLETELY understand your frustration. Imagine how they would respond if you did a botched retic job for them. You would offer to re-do it – not ask if they want it re-done. I also know the feeling of being the only person in a café that seemingly does not like the coffee. It’s intimidating to complain in those circumstances.
On another related matter, if you have a chance to go to Vic Park, try ‘the Imp’. A new café with great coffee and friendly baristas – Chris and Chris. Very affordable also. $3.80 for a topped long mach – opposed to the $5 I was slugged at a well known South Perth establishment for a take-away long mach recently (the dish water variety).
