In the last year or so, both my favourite Gloucester Rd coffee shops have started serving "single origin" coffee - but it was only a few weeks ago that I first bought a cup. It came complete with an alchemical apparatus that would have made Friar Bacon blush, and I felt a little pretentious for drinking it, but since then I've become something of an addict. Besides, drinking coffee has always had an element of theatre, has it not? (No? Oh well, just checking.)
I'm curious - how widespread is this single origin malarkey? Sightings, anyone?
