A Caffe Mocha with a Specific Gravity Roughly in the Neighborhood of Kryptonite...


Jenni and I headed to the Portland Farmers' Market today, and after loading ourselves up with the good stuff, went to Sahagun to try their mocha.

This is not a normal mocha. It's an anomoly. A mutant. A dense, gooey and weirdly confrontational freak of nature. A more conventional mocha is to this one what Tom Clancy is to Fyodor Dostoevsky. What George W. Bush is to Abraham Lincoln. What Carrot Top is to Lenny Bruce. This mocha is built on estate grown single bean Bolivian chocolate, incorporates Stumptown Hairbender and is finished with a dollop of cream. It costs nearly a dollar per ounce, and is worth every last cent. Go experience it for yourself...

Oh yeah, their truffles ain't bad, either.

Does pure ecstasy ever NOT come in a brown ceramic cup? Uh, okay, I guess that question kinda answers itself... But thanks for the comment, and welcome aboard, E&M!
