On my first visit to Taipei I took note of the coffee fanaticism. It looked to have recently blasted off and dropped the boosters. Just thirteen months later it's arrived at the outer rings of Jupiter, at least at Coffee Alley. Ordering a "tiramisu latte" seemed like a good idea. My logic was something like this: I like tiramisu and I like latte. She was a skin deep beauty, so pretty for her picture, but lacked depth and charm. The powdery topping lodged in my lungs like asbestos and I nearly coughed up the bland espresso.
Dodo's cotton candy affogatto seemed like a really bad idea but turned out to be surprisingly good. It looked ridiculous when it arrived - a sugary beehive with a side of espresso. Everyone around us stared.
