Readers of the Jesus Creed blog know that I like coffee and use a Rancilio Sylvia daily to pull my shots, and that I like Chicago’s Intelligentsia coffee and Libertyville’s own roaster, Hansa, as the two constants in this home. Over the years folks have sent me beans to grind, smell, and brew into a nice espresso.
Among my favorites are Chestnut Hill Coffee Company in Philly, Doubleshot in Omaha, and Stumptown in the PacNW.
Add another one from the PacNW to my short list: Coava.
Josh Butler sent me a package of El Ishco, from El Salvador, and I have to say: it’s right there with Intelligentsia and Hansa. A dry bean with a chocolate-y aroma and taste. Perfect for my latte.
