I’m not sure what it is with The Flying Goat Coffee. Either I get an amazing cappuccino made exactly as ordered or I get something else entirely and in some cases I don’t get anything at all.
Of the last three times I have visited The Goat in Healdsburg only once has my order been properly fulfilled.
- Ordered a cappuccino. Ten minutes of waiting, they forgot to make it.
- Ordered a cappuccino. It comes, delicious. (Pictured above)
- Ordered a cappuccino with two extra shots. I get a double espresso.
I understand that The Goat is a coffee shop superior in product to Starbucks but at least with Starbucks, if I order a drink, nine times out of ten that drink is what I get.
Of course, as long as The Goat has plain bagels with cream cheese and tapenade, I’ll be loyal with ever trip to Santa Rosa/Healdsburg. Fact.
Despite it’s iffy wireless, and the fact I have to buy something from them every two hours to get access to their wireless, I just love Kaldi’s Coffee here in Columbia.
I worked for Starbucks for… well for a long time. I don’t even remember how long but I do remember working for Starbucks in Washington DC, California, Missouri, Texas, Illinois and New York. Phew.
And while I still go to Starbucks, somewhat regularly for a Iced Venti Sugar Free Vanilla, Non-fat Starbucks Doubleshot with the extra shot. It’s delicious, I swear.
But more and more, I’m craving the succulent brew of the Espresso 700 or a hot cup of Highlander brew.
And that’s all this post is about. A random blog post about a coffee shop I really love that serves awesome coffee, great food and wins my heart, even though they don’t have free, open WiFi.
