Caffiend: Open Book Cafe's House Blend
But while the ambiance is cool, the cafe's house blend is rather unimpressive. After receiving no information about it from the barisita, who said he doesn't drink coffee, we figured we'd give it a try anyway. What we got tasted like a really weak cup of Folger's. The house blend tasted watered-down, as if somebody had dissolved a few coffee nips in hot water and called it java. And not surprisingly for a coffee that tasted like water dressed in brown, there was no big caffeine rush, either.
Maybe we just got a cup from a weak pot, but our first experience with Open Book Cafe's House Blend had us running for the energy drinks. How else were we supposed to get through The Collected Works of Edgar Allan Poe in an hour?
