A personal blog by Khürt Williams, with imagery, and inchoate ramblings on coffee, beer, and geekery.
a person who knows a lot about something (such as art, wine, food, etc.)
I am far from an expert at the art of brewing coffee but I would argue that I know more about it than the average person. I spend a lot of time reading about coffee beans and coffee brewing. But apparently offering one’s opinion on the quality of the espresso drink at a popular restaurant makes me a snob.
one who has an offensive air of superiority in matters of knowledge or taste
Perhaps it was my attitude about what we were drinking that was the issue. I did not mean to seem superior but perhaps my tone and facial expressions said something that my words did not. The latte wasn’t terrible. In my opinion it wasn’t made with the similar amount of care as the meal. It was disappointing. It reminded me of something I could get at a Starbucks. And I don’t like Starbucks coffee.
Maybe the lesson learned is, “it’s not what you say, it’s how you say it”.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
