I spent this morning pulling $30.00 shots. Thats right. $30.00. If you havn't heard, Miguel Meza (of Paradise Roasters) had started this incredibly interesting side company called R. Miguel. This morning we debued the first R. Miguel coffee the Nectar 2007, a Panama Gesha varietal. Roughly $300.00 a pound. I pulled roughly 20 for people willing to give their taste buds an experience not easily forgotten. I relate pulling those shots to child birth. The intensity of properly handling and extracting this espresso was near mind boggling. There was no room for error. I will say it was one of the better tasting S.O. coffees that I have ever had as an espresso. Intense flavors of lilly, dandelion honey, jasmine, with a finish reminiscent of crisp, natural sparkling water. Was it worth $30.00? I am not totally sure, but it was an amazing coffee. Now to go home, relax, and try to forget the stress involved with handling such a rare and impressively processed coffe.
