Sergio came out to prep staff on the history and tasting notes of Los Javis. He taught us about the roasting process and that it can take anywhere from 72 hours to 5 days. We learned that Los Javis is the less smoky of all the mezcals and it quickly became our favorite after Misa made some awesome cocktails for us.
