Old Rock Cafe, Sudbury, ON, Canada
Sunday morning and we find ourselves at Old Rock Cafe in Sudbury. A small roaster/cafe that by first glance seems to offer up to 45 different coffee roasts! I hope to return for another visit to find out exactly how many roasts they offer and what types. Nonetheless, lots to choose from!
We had a single shot espresso with the same amount of milk; a kind of Cortado-like drink. The Barista tells me he is the son of the Master Roaster - his Mom- lovely! The espresso is a blend of 4 coffee regions, as far as I can remember him saying: Yemen, Brazil, Ethiopia and ?... Regardless of the blend, it was made with care, with a predominant barley taste, aromas of earth and grasses abound, a thin-body coffee - leaving an aftertaste of cigarette and ash. It was unique to my tastes and palette.
