    Rogue Wave recommended this roast as espresso and I’ve been working with it for the last 10 days. It was great for lattes and my wife really enjoyed hers. Also, does a really good iced Americano as the ice and dilution helps draw out some of the sweeter citrus character.

    I definitely pick up some of the toffee and chocolate character in sipping espresso. A lot of citrus character as well though it’s not really tart at all. Fair amount of grapefruit here, which makes sense in espresso but washes out the other citrus a bit until you mix it.

    Inexpensive and fun single origin espresso from a great roaster!

    Cupping Method:A lot of ways! Espresso, iced and hot Americano, cortiado.

    This roast has a nice mouthfeel and a full body. There is a touch of astringency, which makes me think of pear with a hint of toffee.

    Cupping Method:Vietnamese drip, 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: El Salvador
The unique flavor profiles of Salvadorian coffees often feature notes of chocolate, caramel, and tropical fruit, with bright acidity, making them a favorite among connoisseurs. The coffee-growing areas of El Salvador are characterized by volcanic slopes, high altitudes, and fertile soil, providing ideal conditions for the cultivation of high-quality coffee beans.
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.
