I've been working my way through the Bolivia - 2005 Cup of Excellence - Agricabv Calama Marka that I got, there's just enough left to make one more cup of drip with it. It made a great cup of drip (using the melitta) fruity, very crisp and clean and stayed good as it cooled. I also french pressed it and put it through the mill with the vac-pot, they turned out good to, but surprising to me, not as good as the drip. If you drink a lot of drip be sure to try it out.

I couldn't resist the sale any longer, so ordered some of the Caffe Fresco Daterra Estate's Espresso Reserve, its the bargain of the summer at $10/Lb. I normally get the Ambrosia espresso blend as well when I order from Caffe Fresco, but this time thought I'd try something new, so settled on the Black Hand Blend, which has the intriguing description of Black Hand Blend Is Reminiscent Of The Hills Of Sicily. A Land Where Evening Breezes Are Charged With Fragrances From Citrus Trees. A Place Where Kitchens Are Filled With Aromas Of Wine And Tables Are Adorned With Nuts And Figs. Contents Of This Blend Are Secret - Reminiscent Of The Black Hand.. Sounds like it should be another one of Tony's masterpeices.
