I don't know if any of you have heard of Espresso Toscano from Counter Culture Coffee in Durham, NC, but it is the BOMB. I recently tried 3 12 oz. bags of it and I can now say it's the best espresso roast I've tried yet. Smooth, buttery, the strongest overall taste of any blend yet and also has the longest lasting and thickest crema I've seen from any bean. Even after the beans hit the 3 week point after roast the shot was still 90% crema. Just outstanding. Later!
