    A stunning espresso with remarkable depth of flavor.

    There's nothing here a regular espresso drinker hasn't seen, but the depth of the flavor here is eye-opening. The aroma is deep chocolate and you almost spend the whole day with a smile on your face smelling it.

    In the cup it's rich chocolate, caramel, toffee, dark cherry, and blackberry. It's deep and complex. It spins out a big crema that gives it a lush mouthfeel. It's hard to explain but I get a fresh bag of espresso every week - maybe one out of 25 bags just has this richness.

    Outstanding!

    Cupping Method:Espresso, Americano, latte, it does well. Primarily pulling at 95C on my La Spaziale A53.

    This roast struck me as a great winter espresso. Kind of a medium-dark with an unusual flavor profile-- unsweetened cinnamon toast. I can picture this as a cozy breakfast treat on a cold winter day.

    Cupping Method:Moka espresso, cream with no sweetener

More Details

Roast Level: Medium
Medium roast coffee balances the beans' natural flavors and the roasting process, providing a well-rounded taste profile. When selecting a medium roast, look for a balance of acidity and sweetness, with caramel, nuts, and chocolate notes and a medium body.
Bean Source Country: Americas Blend
Latin American coffee beans often have flavor profiles characterized by bright acidity, medium to light body, and fruity or nutty notes.
Organic
Organic coffee is produced without synthetic chemicals, such as pesticides, herbicides, and artificial fertilizers. Instead, organic coffee farmers rely on natural and sustainable agricultural practices like crop rotation, composting, and biological pest control. To be labeled as organic, coffee must meet strict regulations and certification criteria set by governing bodies, such as the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) or the European Union (EU). Organic coffee not only supports environmental sustainability but may also offer health benefits, as it contains fewer chemical residues than conventionally grown coffee.
Fair trade
Fair-trade coffee refers to coffee beans that are produced, traded, and sold following a set of ethical and social standards designed to ensure fair treatment of farmers and workers in the coffee industry. Fair Trade organizations work to create a more equitable global trade model by prioritizing the well-being of small-scale coffee producers and farm workers, primarily in developing countries.
Espresso
Espresso is a concentrated coffee beverage brewed by forcing hot water through finely-ground coffee beans under high pressure. It is characterized by its rich flavor and distinctive crema—the creamy layer that forms on top of the extracted process. When evaluating espresso, coffee experts often focus on key tasting characteristics such as aroma, flavor, body, and aftertaste. Aroma refers to the fragrant smells released during brewing, while flavor encompasses the coffee's overall taste profile, including notes of sweetness, bitterness, acidity, and richness. Body refers to the coffee's texture or mouthfeel, with descriptors like full-bodied, medium-bodied, or light-bodied. Aftertaste, or the finish, pertains to the lingering flavors and sensations experienced after swallowing the coffee. A well-prepared espresso is prized for its balance and complexity, combining these sensory attributes into a harmonious whole.
