Just a quick one on this water-logged Wednesday.
Bird Rock Coffee Roasters Morena:
It's no secret, that Bird Rock Coffee is a favorite of the Missus. From the first time we saw the sign last year on a quick trip to Stehly Farms, we'd been asking if the location on Morena, home to their roasting facility.
Still, my visits have been fruitful. On the morning of Christmas Eve, I dropped by and was shocked to see they had brewed a batch of the iconic Panama Geisha. We'd previously spent ten bucks for pour over at Bird Rock, and while this was just drip coffee, it was worth way more than the $2.15 price tag. Smooth, almost too smooth, aromatic....very nice.
I also noticed that the Kyoto Drip tower had been set-up. The really friendly guys here....they love to talk about the various aspects of coffee....heaven for a coffee nerd like the Missus, told me they were "dialing it in"...... I'm hoping they have some nice cold brew the next time I drop by.
I was also told they were considering the possibility of weekend hours......which I'd appreciate.

Right before the deluge hit, I decided to see what was up with Pho Paradise. I was somewhat surprised to see Eviction Restoration Notice posted on the door. Too bad. I once thought that the pho here had some promise, but my last visit here in November was quite disappointing.
One consistent thing about Convoy. There's no good pho to be had.
