Common Ground Cafe is now called The Yellow Deli cafe and it did not move from #katoomba but on the contrary: it is at the same awesome place all woody, cool and warm and it is even better since the time we made a film on it ( The Common Ground Cafe & Bakery - Picton) and flourishing: there is no empty place inside on the weekend and even on the weekdays there are people coffee-ing and sandwich-ing. Tosha was allowed to have his blanket and even was given some fresh filtered water... btw even the coffee tastes better when it's made with love. we adore this place and all the people who work there. thanks, guys!
Red eye is a common name for coffee with espresso. Other regular names include "shot in the dark", and "depth charge" - though, in the United States, this is a federally registered trademark of a company, Caribou Coffee, so usage is restricted.At the coffeehouse chain Dunkin' Donuts, the drink is known as a "turbo", and is available either hot or iced. A double shot of espresso in the coffee may be termed a "black eye", and a triple shot a "dead eye".
A red eye is a fortified coffee drink in which espresso is combined with normal drip coffee. It is known by various names, some of which refer to different variants.
VARIANTS Drip coffee to which espresso is added may be called a red eye, black eye, or dead eye, depending on the number of shots which have been added. While "black eye" was named for the appearance of the circular black marking caused by pouring the shot on the top of the cup of coffee with cream, the "red eye" was named for the extra added zip needed to stay awake through an overnight "red eye" flight from the West Coast to New York. It may also be referred to as a Canadiano, particularly if the drip coffee is added to the espresso (rather than espresso to the drip), punning on an Americano, which is hot water added to espresso.
ALTERNATIVE NAMES The red eye has many monikers, depending on the region.
In Alaska, it is known as a "sludge cup," possibly in reference to the state's large petroleum industry (see oil sludge).
In the Pacific Northwest, a single and double shot is known as a "shot in the dark" and a "double shot in the dark" respectively.
At Whitemoor Mine it was known as a Wellard Coffee - a reference to the dog in Eastenders and the fact that one had to be "Well Hard", i.e. tough, to drink it.
Two other alternatives to the name are depth charge or hammerhead.
At the Horse Brass pub in Portland, Oregon it may be referred to as a "Stink Eye".
A variant in northern California is known as the "Train Wreck."
Parts of the Northeast coast in the US refer to it as the "mondo".
CAREAMELIZED AT LUXBITE
well, and polishing it off I suppose with latte and hot chocolate with salty caramel at LuxBite South Yarra (as one can imagine Marie-Antoinette mini cakes and rainbow colored macaroons are only for see-food now). i hope it was an excellent new discovery for Ned as I was promised he will be taking all his clients there from now on. and as I see a surprise on his caramelized face I am asking: right, Ned?
