The Best Coffee I've Ever Had?

Yes, it was. Philz is perhaps the only place in the world where you have to answer the question "floral or earthy?" at 7am. Not a coffee drinker for some years now, I've recently been intrigued into few mugs by reading "Coffee: A Dark History." Philz's was indeed dark, and also earthy and rich, with aspects of smoke and minerals. If I lived there, I'd be interested in going to one of their tastings. I'd also have to be careful to go often enough to show my support, but not so often that it put my body into shock. The caffeine had me dancing through San Francisco.

This was one of many thrilling food experiences while visiting the Bay Area last week. Stay tuned for "Mission: Taco" and "A Meal At the Chez Panisse Cafe."
