Yesterday (Mar 14, 2013) I visited Ground Up, which is located in the AOL building in Palo Alto (1st floor, open for public via a special entrance). Let me say it straight out: yes, they do serve Blue Bottle coffee. No, they do NOT serve a good Gibraltar. In fact, until I drank their coffee, I had no idea that someone could make Gibraltar coffee that bad. No, sorry, the word “bad” doesn’t begin to capture it. It was terrible, simply terrible. Very bitter, with a spoiled taste and I felt sick afterwards. My day would have been ruined by that coffee if I my meetings afterwards had not had such a wonderful spirit.
GibraltarCoffee.com scale: -8 . DON’T GO.
