The previously mentioned trip to Greenville, SC was a worth while diversion off of the beaten path. Coffee & Crema was everything it was cracked up to be and more. Shannon, the proprietor, was fantastic. I immediately announced myself as a “coffee geek” enthusiast and he obliged me with the best espresso I have ever seen and tasted in my short life. Tonx recommended Coffee & Crema and he was right on target.
Shannon, you officially have a fan! I spent a couple hours with him at his bar and we had some of the best fellowship discussing coffee that I have ever had apart from e-mail and forums. I guess I just need to “get out” more often. I came home with a bag of single origin Ethiopian Yirg which, come to think of it, right now would seem to be a good time to break that bag open….:) l8r!
