Open mic was fun tonight. The recap will come later, but we had 17 performers once again. I’m begining to think that 15-17 is the perfect number for a 3 hour event. Plus, lots of people seemed to be buying stuff which is good for the house. If you support your local coffee shop, it will stay in business!
I think the Tree House should bring back the Jungle Nut flavored coffee. The Black Velvet just isn’t as good, although a red-eye with the House Blend is still excellent. In case anyone has ever wondered about the various drinks you can get at a coffee shop, here are the basics:
Espresso – A shot of strong coffee brewed by forcing steam under pressure through darkly roasted, powdered coffee beans.
Cappuccino = Espresso + Foamed Milk
Latte = Espresso + Steamed Milk
Americana = Espresso + Hot Water (Who orders this?)
Red-Eye = Espresso + Cup of Coffee
Black-Eye = 2 Shots of Espresso + Cut of Coffee
There are other variations, but most are Espresso + something else.
