I’m a lucky man. Went over to Moschetti’s yesterday and Fabrice’s right hand man, Mario, let me bury my nose and taste the latest fresh roast coffee (crunch those beans). I ended up with four pounds of amazing beans. Panama Finca La Florentina, Kenya Peaberry, and one more bean that escapes me.
This morning I’m pulling shots and happy as a clam, and then on the 7th shot, before it’s done I know it’s a good one. GOD Shot! Pure essence of coffee, port like intensity, dense, so complex I can’t describe every flavor I discover. Sweet and lingering goodness.
And it holds up very well in our typical giant latte. I’m wired.
