Portola Coffee Roaster

Angels Cup sent this blend from Portola Coffee Roaster. Whenever I’m in the neighborhood, I will try to drop by to enjoy a latte. What amazes me all the time is that every latte taste just like the previous latte whether it was one, two or six months ago. That level of consistency is amazing. The bag of beans is a dark roast blend. The beans don’t have that typical slightly ashen roasted aroma even though it’s easy to spot the “oily-ness” of the beans.

Making my latte, I immediately get slight hints of what a Portola made latte would taste like. It’s followed by a pleasant chocolate taste that makes it very smooth and drinkable. The latte isn’t anywhere like the professionally made lattes but it was delicious that I immediately made a 2nd cup.
