It was held at Kudu, which is situated on Vanderhorst Street, just off King Street in Downtown Charleston. It’s the road just by the Lutheran Church with the huge steeple, that I mentioned just yesterday – the one that burnt down in 1965.
I had never been to Kudu before and I’d heard much about it.
The idea of the Meetups is to meet fellow coffee lovers, and enjoy good coffee, and good conversation.
I have to say that, in my opinion, this meetup, excelled on both counts.
I got to meet some new people (to me at least), and the coffee was the best I’ve had anywhere in Charleston. Period.
Kudu specializes in African coffees. I tried the house blend, and also the Cameroon Boyo. Both very good, as was the Jamaican Beef Patties. They were a little spicey, which I like, but is not to everyone’s taste of course.
We ended up staying for 3 hours!
After that we were all a little hungry, so we headed up King Street to Basils, which was only three blocks away and walking distance.
There we had some excellent Thai food, to round off a wonderfully interesting and relaxing afternoon.
