Excellent cappuccino at Madame Waffle.

Cappuccino is consistently good at Madame Waffle.

Puts to shame the undrinkable house blend at Stokes.

Cappuccino at Madame Waffle

April 27, 2017

First time I had a cappuccino this style, was at El Café del Aguere in La Laguna.

Halfway through, add cocoa, note cocoa not chocolate, chocolate is dumped on a cappuccino to hide bad coffee.

This style delineates the art.

Excellent cappuccino, though given a choice, I would have preferred only coffee, to see what the coffee was like.

Interesting conversation with proprietor Bruce.

We were discussing coffee, what else, and he brought samples of arabica and robusta, to show the defects with the robusta. Defects being broken beans, fragment of beans, it could have been floor sweepings.

When brewed the robusta has an unpleasant bitter taste one reason for dumping chocolate on top, and why people add sugar.

Try a quality cappuccino without sugar.

Previous day we had discussed comparing coffee bought from a supermarket, no roast date, best by, which is meaningless. Why, because old beans are being sold.  Try a comparison with the supermarket beans to quality beans.

Grind the beans hours before, then compare beans ground fresh for each fresh cup.

When not ground fresh, laziness, could not care less about the quality of the coffee.

Occasional live music.

I suggested look out for a Polish guitarist Bartek Dabrowski I had seen playing in the street, invite him to play.

I also suggested, record live music, but would have to be high quality recordings, then release on bandcamp, CDs on sale downstairs, split with the participants.

Madame Waffle has free copies of  Caffeine and on sale Standart.
