This espresso blend has been a work in progress for some time. The brainchild of Chris, who revels in excellent espresso and believes in keeping tradition alive. He has primarily been keeping to himself in the espresso lab, patiently waiting to kick off the comeback of the traditional Italian espresso. While we arent trying to make this the “New Classic” and we certainly aren’t trying to emulate the coffee of the average street espresso vendor in Italy, we are offering the classic Italian espresso with the benefit of single sourced coffees. While this roast is on the lighter side of what you would envision as espresso (Euro-Style or the scorched earth brought to you by the large coffee corporations) while holding true to the regional locals and parameters of the traditional blend. What we ended up with was a balanced espresso, not too sweet and not too bold, that will produce an extraordinary crema. This thing just explodes in your face, balanced bittersweet notes, thick and opaque body, almond and chocolate roast flavors, hints of peach tea, spice, jasmine. Truly a gioia di vivere!
