Dropped in to my favourite bistro on the Capricorn Coast (Cocos at Seaspray Resort) with a few friends on Sunday. Wed been out for a drive in the sports cars & were all hanging out for a coffee. Cocos is a Merlo outfit and the coffee is always very good.
In an attempt to avoid getting a large cup of weak coffee, I have taken to ordering my long blacks in the following manner :
" Can I have a single shot in the cup and a small jug of hot water".
This generally works well as I then pour only about 80ml -100ml of water onto the shot.
My friends were amused to see my shot arrive in the small jug accompanied by a coffee cup full of hot water.
I just poured the shot into the cup - it was a bit weak but still a good coffee.
