Todd prefers coffees that offer dynamic sweetness and balance while simultaneously surprising and stretching the palate. Not surprisingly, favorites shift with the passing seasons.
Taylor enjoys all kinds of coffees, particularly those that challenge her perception of what they should taste like. Not one to discriminate, Taylor likes what's in season and what reflects her mood on a particular day.
Rob is what he likes to call "classically trained", which is a fancy way of saying he spent his apprentice years cupping to find defects. So first and foremost, he likes super clean coffees. After that, he likes balance and subtlety. Any coffee can bang you over the head with a fruit bomb, but few can wow you with layers of greatness. Those coffees get his highest marks.
