Yauco Selecto Coffee
Both of our shops are closed for the month, and that’s always difficult for me in terms of coffee. I need my daily fix, and I miss having good coffee on call! What I usually do is revert to my home cafetierre (photo above) using our organic Fairtrade bean or top up with a hit from my stove-top espresso maker.
I have written before about Yauco Selecto beans from Puerto Rico, and yesterday I brought some home.
