Coffee+Cocktails at Amor y Amargo 06-01-2013

Location: 443 E. 6th. St
Time: 11:30am
People: RB and myself

Feelings: On the weekends from 11am to 4pm only, East Village bitters enthusiasts, Amor y Amargo (Love and Bitter!) are offering some serious coffee service. Being the first bar to focus on bitters in NYC, the menu involves intricate iced coffee cocktails ($9). Since I don't drink alcohol,  they were able to serve one amazing glass of Japanese style pour-over iced coffee using beans from Counter Culture.

It is always strange to hear "Japanese style pour over coffee." As coming from Osaka, I sort of only recognize real coffee as pour over or siphon coffee. My father who is a coffee addict always says, "I'm going to get a cup of awful coffee," which really means any non-pour over coffee. He even found a place in Osaka that serves "The best awful coffee in the city."

On a quiet counter in a nicely air conditioned room, RB enjoyed "Morning Stubble" (Ndaroini coffee from Kenya, Bonal, Gin, Rye, Tiki Bitters) with a small glass of extra iced coffee served straight on the side. It is a flavor heaven. The palate is triggered by the boldness and smooth sophistication combined with delectable sweet aroma. The whole experience is a true oasis in East Village. All this is conveniently located right next door to CK's Saturday piano class.

I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet
I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good
content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever
