Review of Portola Coffee Lab: The Perfect Cup of Coffee!

Mad scientists exist and they exist for the cause of good at Portola Coffee Labs! It's like a mad science experiment gone exceptionally well! This was my first time here and I was pleased to see everyone dressed in lab coats! They take their cup of coffee seriously!
The photo above shows the V-60, made by a company called Hario. It is a single cup drip method where the perfect amount of hot water is placed in the cone and the grounds brew. Each cup can take up to 4-8 minutes to brew. This was totally worth the extra time. The cup was rich and smooth!
This cool looking gadget is called the Kyoto-style dripper. This slow (8 hour) process drips water methodically onto grounds to produce a robust, concentrated cup of coffee.
The best cup of coffee I have ever had!

In a few days they are opening a one of a kind experience called Theorem! Think a cocktail bar but with coffee and minus the alcohol! For a set price you will be able to experience and learn about coffee in a way never before realized. Reservations are mandatory and only taken through the website! I can't wait to go!
