    Maybe actually unfair since I had it side by side with Hidden's Ethiopia espresso, which for me was outstanding. This is floral, fruity, complex medium roast as well, with a lot of chocolate undertones and a very pleasant crema.

    I can certainly see why this one is used for milk drink, it has a bit more balanced and a more muted acidity than the Ethiopia. It's much closer to something everyone would like. I know my wife loved her cafe con leche that they made with this espresso.

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: Brazil
Brazil, the world's largest coffee producer, has traditionally been known for its vast output of commodity-grade coffee, including a significant volume of Robusta beans. However, in recent years, the country has made a concerted effort to enhance the quality of its microlots, aiming to solidify its reputation within the specialty coffee sector including greater cultivation of higher-quality Arabica. These initiatives have contributed to developing coffee microlots with distinct flavor profiles, with Brazilian coffee notably known for rich notes of chocolate, nuts, and fruit.
Bean Source Region: Cerrado
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.
