Thanks, Tom. 
Last week I was pulling shots from 65/35 costa rica chiripo finca Alaska and mohka sana'ani. Both just FC. 

It was fantastic, especially with a little chocolate and a touch of milk.

> I THINK YOU WILL LIKE THE NEW WORKSHOP BLEND oops, sorry, if you liked Tono Alto. It's probably a little more tame in terms of brightness. The Tono Alto was screaming bright! But roast to Full City this new one packs plenty of high end punch too, and has a very long and complex aftertaste.

We can do blends in the same general theme I suppose but the right coffees have to come, and it's hard to plan ahead for exactly how any lot will work in espresso. One issue is that when I cup pre-shipment samples (before a coffee is exported from origin) they are very fresh coffees, not rested for a long time. With experience you can anticipate how they will change as they settle down, but for espresso in particular it is really hard. There's almost no way to pull a good shot of a coffee that was only rested 15 days on a patio after drying... just another FYI on how I work with the blends.
