So the wife and kids and I decided to drop in to have a good cup of coffee/pastry, as advertised, about 8:15 Monday evening. All coffee had been poured out as they closed at 10:00pm and needed to clean.....Drove on up to Weaver Street in Southern Village, had a pretty good cup of coffee/desert for a "Tad" less I might add. Standard procedure at the B&B???

When you're feeling slow, grab a "shot of 'spro"!

No excuse as an Americano (diluted espresso) is a great replacement option. Provided they don't shut the espresso machine down for cleaning 1.5-2 hrs. in advance, which would be ridiculous.

As our resident coffee expert, what do you think of restaurants that shut down the coffee brewing well before closing time and try to keep what they have on hand in warming carafes, etc.?

Option A is OK... Fresh brewed coffee can be kept in heated carafes for 30-45 mins before it starts to degrade.

Option B is better... Brew into airpots as it will stay relatively fresh and hot for 2-3 hours.

Option C is the best... Offer an Americano, as it's the freshest/most flavorful way to offer drip-style coffee with absolutely no waste to the business.
