A tasty visitor

THE MAN with the golden tongue, Gennaro Pelliccia, right, is in Costa's Ireland stores to help staff identify key coffee subtleties.

The company recently had the chief coffee taster's tongue insured for £10m (€12.3m).

Gennaro personally tastes every single batch of raw coffee beans at the company's roastery in Lambeth, London, before they are roasted and shipped to its stores across Ireland and the rest of the world.
