My family and I stopped into Buchi this weekend. The pressed breakfast sandwiches were good, hinting at the delicious potential for pressed sandwiches at lunch, but what really stuck out was the café con leche. It was like a cup of drinkable coffee ice cream, but without the syrupy tang that comes with the sweetened coffee swill from the Starbucks of the world. It was so good I demanded my wife have a sip, even though she prefers drinking glass shards than coffee. And you know what? She actually liked it – or at least she didn’t spit it out in my face and tell me never to ask her to try coffee ever again, which I quixotically do on a regular basis.
So thank you, Buchi. You’ve brought me one step closer to my ultimate dream: Having a wife who enjoys coffee with me. Maybe together, we’ll actually break her. – Joel Warner
