I'm glad that I stumbled into The Coffeevine, right now little more than a pop-up sharing space with an ice cream shop, when I did, because the owner happened to be there.

Alex runs a coffee blog...


...and LOVES to talk about coffee, and that fact, combined with his offering of that Man Versus Machine Kenya Kiunyu AB roast that knocked my socks off in Munich, made this the highlight of my Amsterdam experience.

I only gave the brew a 7.75, instead of an 8, because it was prepared on a Clever, instead of a Siphon, which I consider to be a superior brewing method, but that still makes this cup the second best I've had during my trip.
