Barry Jarrett’s Espresso Taliaferro is the coffee equivalent of crack. There. I said it. I’ve come clean. Now how do I treat this addiction, save for pulling another shot?
I don’t know what he puts in this blend–I’m only just beginning to get a handle on roasting for brewed coffee, much less espresso. It’s a truly rich flavor–full-bodied and complex with a zippy finish that cuts though the milk in a cappuccino, while more than rounded enough for a straight shot [make mine a double, please.] Its aromatics bloom on your tongue and zoom around in your head and… wow. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to pull one more.
Just one. Really.
