As a cafe owner cafe reviews websites on line are terrible. Its a hit and miss with these guys and are their palates really that good? Ive had several of these reviews and i have tested these guys myself to see if they know anything. Some guys order lattes and judge your coffee on just that latte. Is that really the right way to review someone? They question and make judgements on your ability, but who questions them?. Can they make a coffee? Can they make a coffee 10 hours a day 7 days a week? Do they roast? Anyone can hide behind a computer and write reviews, i challenge any of these guys to come and work behind a machine. Reading anything on line check out the persons background
You really have to be a regular at a cafe to know how good the coffee is. Ive had bad and good coffees at my favourite cafes. But i understand the work behind it and sometimes you can get an average coffee at the best cafes.
Recommedations from coffeesnobs or geeks is great. Which city do are you interested in?
