Specialty coffee awakening

I just remembered the first coffee awakening that I had. I was late to get into coffee. Other than being given espresso as a tween by my Italian parents I did not even taste coffee until my late twenties. I flew to Sydney for a conference and was surprised to see a very sleek looking cafe popup in the lobby. It turned out that Air Coffee was opposite the church and was doing a service for the church. At the time Air Coffee was a big deal and doing great third wave work.

The coffee in the church was so good. It was smooth, it was silky, it was sweet, the coffee inside the milk was balanced. I can still feel the mouthfeel. The next day I attended my first cupping. This was 2008. I had totally forgotten about this.
