Toshi’s 2 cents…

I roasted Nossa Senhora yesterday from 5 kg renegade and cupped this morning. It was amazing, even espresso roast. Citrus aroma, nuts, full body winey and tobacco leaf  at the end. Then today we ran out of coffee of the day and I had to use 1 day old Nossa Senhora. I put it through the Slayer… it was the best Brazil coffee I have ever had from espresso machine! Kris and I both agree with the best Brazil from the machine. Looking forward to La Perla espresso roast soon. I cupped already and that was good as well. Toshi
