so you like coffee? I was cleaning up in the kitchen today because I'm going to move. How is it that I'm single and have, like six coffee making devices??? anyway, packing those things up made me wonder about the best coffee I ever had..............surprisingly, it was easy to remember. It was a few years ago at a hotel in Rio de Janeiro. Breakfast was included with my room which is typical in Rio. I was staying at a place fronting onto Copacabana beach. The restaurant was on the 2nd floor and the view was over the top of the palm trees, out over Copacabana. It was sunny, it rained, Sugar Loaf......ruled the view. Breakfast was a buffet. Since it was the off season, nobody was in a rush. The waiters would come around with a couple of thermos pitchers, one with hot milk, and one with COFFEE. They wore white tuxedos, even at breakfast, but all I wanted was for them to bring the coffee. yeah, the best in the world....ever! ever have a good cup yourself?
