About Me:
Grandson of a major italian green coffee trader in the '50s,'60s and '70s, coffee has always been a "forbidden" drink for me as a child.
This was of course a formidable booster of my desire and love for it since...ever.
In 1976 I started cuptasting single origin samples and "our" own blends with the Napoletana filter coffeemaker (the official system in my grandfather's coffeehouse) personally prepared by "the boss" about 5 to 10-11 times a day.
That's where I built my personal "coffee profile database".
Sailboat Charter Skipper in the Mediterranean and Atlantic ocean during the '90s, since 2001 I have my own importing,trading and roasting company in Napoli (ITALY).

Thanks Carlo, I am for sure going to try this. FREDDO has made that trans-continental leap I hope. Should be perfect in the hot climates of Asia. I will work on my prep skills and then make and post the video. Ciao
