To be honest, I love coffee. Latte art makes he happy. Coffee gets me hyper and I laugh uncontrollably. It’s like a little oasis. I like to sip latte’s with cute girls, people watch, enjoy it with a pastry or cookie, and play games like Cards of Humanity n relax.
Bold Bean reigns supreme in the coffee realm of Jacksonville. They recently opened their 3rd location next door to one of my favorite spots: Knead Bakeshop. (Murray Hill – 1179 Edgewood Ave S.) Bold Bean’s website headline reads: “Visit our cafes for skillfully made beverages, fresh roasted coffees, craft beers and real good times.” Kristen snuck in before the opening to take pictures of an employee coffee cupping event. WTF is coffee cupping you ask? Cupping is a coffee tasting technique used to evaluate coffee aroma and the flavor profile of a coffee. The standard protocol involves deeply sniffing the coffee, then loudly slurping the coffee so it spreads to the back of the tongue. Head over to the new location and hit up Knead Bakeshop too. Please be patient and let all the pictures load. Enjoy!
