7.24.10 Blue Moose

I had the Costa Rican Tarrazu because I was interested in the name...

...Jo.

Tarrazu Tarrazu. It just rolls off the tongue so well. Not the coffee but the word. If the coffee rolled off my tongue, I wouldn't be able to drank it. DERRRRR.

7.14.10 Jay's MTV's The Grind (Spring Break)

I went to Jay's and had my (BIG SURPRISE) iced Americano. It's consistently good whenever muh friend Rich is there. So today I rate it...

...RoJo.

RoJo sounds and looks like Rolo, but has nothing to do with it. RoJo stands for: Rich makes Outstanding Joe.

Hope this helps!

6.23.10 Zenclay

I had the dark roast at Zenclay...

...DoJo.

Thanks, Shmadam Masterhands, for this appropriate rating. The Joe, service, and food was all pretty NoJo. So NoJo that a simple NoJo just did not seem fitting. DoJo means that these guys need to take a lesson to get Jo, or Good. I know you're thinking "DoJo is a hall or room in which martial arts is performed/practiced, not somewhere that someone learns about proper food service." Well, you are right ;).

6.22.10 Eat N Park

I had a cup of regular Coffee at Eat N Park...

...BLoJo.

I know you're wondering what this new rating means and why it reads so dangerously close to the word to describe the sex act that is popular with our generation. Well let me explain. Remember that Jo means good. BLo is not to be read as Blow, but as BeLow. So this coffee is basically BeLow Good, or BAD. BLoJo is just another way of saying that.

6.19.10 Panera

Okay, I've tried the Dark Roast many a time. This time it was...

...KCNJoJo...

...which means it was forgettable and real lame.

Thanks, Jorge Zattezello and Turker Ragglepuss for the new rating idea. They both thought of on their own.

6.15.10 Blue Moose/6.16.10 Jay's Daily Grind

On June 15th, I had an iced Americano at Blue Moose. It's the first time I ever felt a coffee was right in the middle or so-so. My new rating for that is...

...SoJo.

On June 16th, I had an iced Americano at Jay's Daily Grind. Whoa! It was mindblowing! New rating is...

...WoJo.

As in WhOa, that is great JOe. Do you get it?

Also, I had the Jack Rabbit Sandwiche. Turns out there is no rabbit on this sandwiche, which is good for me ;). The Sandwiche was...

...FUCKING DELICIOUS.

1/3/10 Panera

I had the Dark Roast at Panera in Evansdale...

NoJo

Now, usually I like the Joe there, but something about the freshly brewed Dark Roast wasn't what it usually is. I'm not giving up though. I'll try again in a week or so. You know how people can have bad hair days? Well, I think the same can be said about coffee.

1/1/10 Starbucks

I had the Pike Place this evening at Starbucks...

Jo

1/1/10 Blue Moose Cafe

My friend told me I should I have my own rating system that isn't just Good or No Good, so now Good is Jo, and No Good is NoJo. Jo is short for Joe which also means Coffee. This morning I had the Organic Guatemalan at Blue Moose Cafe...

Jo (or Good, if you weren't paying attention earlier)
