having successfully o’ercome the revulsion to coffee that somehow accompanies cold-weather illness, this blog re-emerges womb-fresh and wonders aloud: could terroir’s new daterra espresso appear any more startlingly flaxen? blur your eyes a bit, and it could almost pass for breakfast cereal!


it’s the new crop from the famed brazilian locale, with an espresso roast billed as “southern italian.” (helpful hint: the blondes are supposed to live up north!) alas, this blog is confused.

a foil-gilt third-wave merit badge for anyone who can find a northern italian roast that’s, say, at least several agtron shades darker than terroir’s southern.
