I used to love making Italian brand expresso coffee. I used to bring down my aluminum stove top express maker, my portable electric milk foamer. My parents used to love it. One time I ran out and went to the local gourmet tienda  -  I was floored to find the retail price of an Italian blended expresso was six times the price I paid in Vancouver. I went to a friend of my parents who not only sold coffee, but also serviced most of the commercial expresso machines up and down the coast. His Mexican blend was not close at all.

My vices have become so limited today, I thought I would retry coffee addiction. Can anyone recommend a local expresso blend which is even close, or better, than Italian expresso?

So the price of an Italian blended expresso about doubles when it arrives in Mexico. I could live with that, but would not like to be running a commercial outfit at those prices. I'll have lots of lucky friends I guess!

I buy the French roast /extra fine grind from the red truck guy.

I have always wanted to buy from that guy. I also wanted to ask if he can get me a sack of organic grown cocoa beans from the local cooperative in Veracruz. Anybody else want in? I have a wet stone grinder, which can also be used for tempering. I don' t have a roaster, but those are easy to make.
