At 9:45am, I dialed in. By 12:30, it was over as we had moved through more straight shots than I care to recount. There was still some Formosa and a few shots of Esmeralda left but I needed some time to breathe so I let Simon take the bar and went for lunch.
Anyone who thinks you cannot sell a double espresso that costs more than a latte better rethink that position.
At one point, I had six shots of Esmeralda in the queue and I was thinking, this is surreal.
I'm going to take that nap now.
