Coffee Review: Starbucks Colombia Nariño Supremo

The Starbucks near me has just opened for the day and two familiar faces are praising their decision to grab a cup of Starbucks Colombia Nariño Supremo. Just as I approach the counter, a smiling face greets me. “Would you like to try an espresso made with our Colombia Nariño Supremo coffee”, the smiling face asks ( check is working at Starbucks a good job).
