Came across this interesting article this afternoon. A man by the name of Gennaro Pelliccia is the chief taster for Costa Coffee and is in charge of tasting every batch of raw coffee beans that Costa Coffee uses. He considers his tongue a valuable asset after 18 years of experience in the industry. So much so that he has had his tongue insured for $14 million in the United Kingdom with Lloyds of London.
