Sunergos brews the best cup of coffee in the entire universe.
Sunergos Coffee (www.sunergoscoffee.com ) is a micro roastery and espresso bar with two locations, Preston Highway and Woodlawn. For all those who get cranky and lethargic without their daily cuppa, Sunergos provides a blissful haven, resplendent with art of all kinds: latte art, the ever changing art on the walls provided by locals artists, and of course the art of people watching. If you want a hastily brewed cup of drive-through sludge, Sunergos will not satisfy your needs. However, if you want to linger over a beautifully presented and aromatic mug of steaming bliss, Sunergos is just the place for you.
While the coffee roasted at Sunergos is glorious, the best choice of beverage is the black and white, a mixture of dark chocolate and white chocolate mocha swirled with what can only be fairy dust and first kisses. If ordered frozen and blended, the black and white has the consistency of a milkshake. It is smooth and fragrant and satisfying, more dessert than drink. If ordered hot, the black and white arrives in a large mug with steam rolling off the latte-art etched foam, almost too pretty to drink.
For those more health conscious, the chai latte presented at Sunergos is a spiced delight. The flavor is delicate and lightly sweet without the sugar overpowering the nutmeg. The plain Sunergos blend, simply black, is redolent with chocolate flavor and a nutty finish. The barristas at Sunergos are expert and friendly, and the atmosphere is one full of camaraderie and caffeine. So mosey on in, grab a squashy armchair and a magazine, enjoy a black and white. After all, why settle for another cup of burned and stale drive-through coffee when you can treat yourself to the best in the world?
