Fulcrum's Favorite Coffee: Herkimers

Fulcrum's Paul Haury is one of 17 people on earth blessed with super powered hypersensitive sensory input receptors.   If it involves color, taste, visuals, etc... he is like the Princess and the Pea, and is able to precisely pinpoint every single sensory input nuance even in a cacophony of of flavors or color or music or (most forms of) interpretive dance.  His abilities are so super human that artists and foodies will likely sing songs about him for generations.  At least 3 baristas have named their kids after him (which hopefully is due to his culinary discernment skills), and he is often requested to sign autographs when recognized on the street.

It is a rarity for young Paul to give any coffee shop his blessing, but he has done so with Herkimer Coffee, a favorite haunt of Fulcrum employees in the Seattle world headquarters.  He often displays the XX "Most Interesting Man in the world" facial expressions, saying "I don't always drink coffee, but when I do... I drink Herkimer's...".  

  They DO make a thing of beauty:
