what i love about phil’s is that i remember when the place didn’t serve coffee, but soggy tomato and hummus sandwiches. which for some reason i bought. everytime i went to his shop he was trying different tatics and changing the shop around. he must have tried this one cup at a time gimmik and it stuck. now it is a booming coffee shop with a line out the door for this brew. and another shop opening i believe. it deserves it, it is so good.
i ran into my co-worker there and she was locked out of her home and crying a bit and phil said… “just take a sip of the coffee and everything will be OK”. and it was.
