Loveland >Blue Chip Cookies Direct
Blue Chip Best. Blue Chip Cookies has great cookies, gelato, and coffee and the best espresso bar in the Loveland area. Right on the bike trail. Really nice
Very disappointing espresso.
I have had the occasion to sip an espresso at most of the local coffee houses in the Cincinnati area. I rate Coffee Emporium on Central Parkway and Koka in Mt. Adams to be among the best in the area. Their shots are rich, aromatic and flavorful. The espresso at Blue Chip cookies is just plain bad. Though my preference is for a straight-up double shot, it is the foundation for most of the popular coffee drinks, and as such, must be of the highest quality for those drinks to be of high quality.
The double shot at Blue Chip is very tiny, muddy, and without any of the very important crema. This probably comes from poor training of the staff. There is a burnt aroma and taste to the drink. It is simply not worth the $1.75 (the avg price of double shots in the area, excluding Starbucks).
I strongly suggest that the owners of Blue Chip go out and sample the espresso at any number of establishments. While on the bike trail today, I had a very good double at Branch Hill Coffee (not an endorsement as I have had substandard espresso there as well).
I hope this has an impact as BCC is VERY convenient to the bike trail and could attract a following IF their shots were any good.
Best bakery / coffee house. The best bakery and coffee house on the east side. They have a great staff. Awesome food!. Also the best cookies in the country
