I grew up drinking Turkish coffee...rich flavorful, not very sophisticated. As years went by (and so did my hair) I developed a taste for espresso. Don't get me wrong, I've had espresso before, but I am talking about really, really good espresso. And that's what I like about this site. You can try different roasters, different flavors, create automatic shipments. I will have more to "research" in my espresso testing (or is it tasting) lab.
