Black drop coffee ...

a drop in the bucket,

a wrinkle in time,

another cafe that serves good coffee in an enjoyable setting.

Black Drop cafe is a quaint cafe in Bellingham, Washington. The cafe is filled with brightly colored walls, a bunch of old board games and a variety of interesting characters. Located in the downtown district of Bellingham, Black Drop seems to be a bit of a “hole in the wall” cafe for locals. Serving hot coffee and good vibes they are a definite option for cafes to check out while exploring the Pacific Northwest.

This was a tough one folks. We were packed in tight into an intimate cafe, my tripod and mic were set up and ready to go but lord knows I was not.

I hadn't done one of these in over a week and it seems that I lost a bit of the gusto that I had developed over time.

It takes a thick skin in order to be able to openly review a cup of coffee mere inches away from the very barista's that brewed it and it seems that Black drop would be putting up a fight.

Not that there coffee wasn't good, but rather I wasn't in the mood to appreciate it for it's true worth.

They served me a warm, comforting espresso in a thick mug and I was anything but impressed.

Don't get me wrong, the coffee was not bad, but I simply wasn't excited by it.

I've had enough cups of coffee in my own naively sheltered time to know what I like and not know what I don't know because I haven't known it yet.

With this expertise in hand I have titled myself as a reviewer of heated coffee products and am traveling the world, seeking to offer advice and guidance for cafe's and roasters alike.

Whether or not my advice is valid isn't the point.

What is important is that I have a strong conviction, a stubborn unwillingness to acknowledge the opinion of others and a slight air of pompousness in order to communicate the message that "yes, I do know more about coffee than you sir".

With this ambience carefully crafted and managed I have been able to rise to the top of the decentralized video hosting platform coffee reviewers who also sometimes talk about crypto niche. Reigning kind of the cafe's and crypto space is no easy task, but one that I take with much responsibility and complete seriousness.

Knowing that you, my viewers, rely on my accurate and often witty observations to choose your cafes, and more importantly, craft the very framework of your lives, brings me much joy, yet at the same time a sense of heavy obligation, knowing that with just one sip I can irrevocably alter the course of history.

Know that this is a burden I bear with full awareness of its implications, and that I am ready to take this brand into coffee drinking history.

Until next time my sweet internet, until next time.
