Mikhail Sebastian: Their pour over is very mannered. It makes coffee clean, round and fruity, that you can fully taste all those complex layers of flavor. Their espresso extraction comes out rich in color. Freshness is the key and has a huge impact on the end result, so TIAGO commiitts to the freshness of coffee beans and delivering 100% of high quality arabica beans from such acclaimed roasters as Intelligentsia, Barefoot, Ecco, Handsome and others.
