The next day, out at the Brauna farm office, Elena took over at the espresso machine. As mentioned, she is a very skilled Barista. This an amazing thing about the Brauna Bros and family: they are farmers, they can roast, they can cup, they have espresso equipment on the farm. Too many farmers say, "I grow the finest coffee, blah, blah blah" but put it on a cupping table and ask them to find it among a few others. They can't. Farmers need to roast samples, and cup, just as roasters need to... Otherwise, we are all talking BS with eachother! Here we have a full commercial espresso outfit at the office across from the wet-mill on a coffee farm, and a barista to boot!
