#1882 ... A Robust Label

Mojos maa great coffee ... their Dr Mojo Blend is great for most times of the day ... and YES they use about 2% of robusta beans to give a subtle hit to the 98% of arabica beans ... an intersting label and source. Some more coffeee images to follow from the Coffee Class. A great way to learn about coffee and how to make a memorable cup.

Not really the Pigeon Tree but it is one where they roost ... so take care walking underneath. Aro Park between Manners and Dixon Streets and obviously on the edge of the party zone .. so you may only consume alcohol inside the licensed establishments. The Opera House is in the background behind the tree.
