When is a coffee almost perfect? When it's a beautiful, world-class macchiato served in a paper cup.
Lovely lovelies: Espresso Vivace
What the heck is Monsooned Malabar.
The importance of the good macchiato.
All I have to say, my friends, is that Coffee should taste good.

those little vivace paper cups became part of my daily routine when I moved to Seattle in 2001, so they hold some nostalgic charm. though it is heresy, it is kind of nice to sip a macchiato out of something so thin and light sometimes - accentuates the cloudlike texture of the drink which heavy/hot ceramic can diminish.

Wow, yeah, I never thought of that. Interesting... and yes, I especially noticed the loveliness of the foam. Hmmm....

no monsooned malabar in there: http://tinyurl.com/ybzwxuo
all discussions of legitimacy of espresso/macchiato/cappuccino to-go aside, espresso and macchiato are just so impossibly small to need a to-go vessel. the only thing that has ever swayed me from this is someone claiming they were mid-tiramisu-creation.
if the to-go vessel were edible, that'd just be another story.

Hmm... Read carefully. The link you posted only says there is no more Monsooned robusta. Lots of Monsooned arabicas to choose from out there. And I still think that's what I tasted, though again I could be wrong.
edible to-go espresso cups is my next venture. How did you know???
