The_Espresso_Broz - review on Instagram

The legends out at Zest Coffee have sent us more of their beans to put through it's paces, last time receiving some of the highest scores to date. This time we got a bag of Blackbird and Los Potrerillos, with massive standards to live up to. This is what the Broz thought:

With Jamie on ration duties, the maths was always gonna be suspect. The guy is a straight up dullard of the highest order. I commanded him to split the beans 33% each. The guy gives me 33 grams... If anyone was gonna get 33 grams of beans and asked to review them fairly it could only be Me. Jules calls me godshots, coz I can't make a bad one. I took my 66 grams of Blackbird and Los Potrerillos, and brought tears to Jamies eyes, as he watched it silkily slither into the cup. The Blackbird was smooth and solid but not 100% to my taste. The Los Potrerillos was far more suited to my delicate pallet. Little spicy fruit wonderland to feast on. Very enjoyable by the Zest legends. 7.9/10

Love the guys at Zest. Always supplying us with the goods! Two different beans to try today. Found them both worthy and enjoyed drinking multiple espressos from each. The stand out though, would have to be 'Blackbird'. My type of flavours! Fruity toffee, ending in a big caramel hit. I may have left out a few beans when dealing Jason's portion of these. 7.8/10

I still go to bed dreaming about their Composition VII, so these beans had the pressure put on them from the start. I tried them both as an Espresso, a Pour Over and with milk and on all three occasions the Los Potrerillos was more to my taste. A thick, dark, fruity flavour dominated the bean for me and was very enjoyable, these guys definitely know the game! 7/10
