    I recently tried the Hellacious Blend from Sightseer Coffee, a women-owned roaster in Austin, TX, and it was fantastic. The beans come from women farmers, which makes this coffee extra special. The flavors are a delicious mix of dark chocolate, orange zest, almond butter, and bergamotlike a twist on the usual chocolate, citrus, and caramel notes in a good standard cafe espresso. The subtle florality is a nice touch.

    The depth of flavors was really impressive, and each sip revealed something new. The crema was rich and added a lot to the experience. I did find a few quakers in the bag (about five), but they didnt really affect the overall quality or enjoyment of the espresso.

    For me, blend is a great pick if you want to support women in the coffee industry and enjoy a unique, flavorful espresso.

    Cupping Method:Espresso, iced Americanos. Pulled at 95C on my La Spaziale A53 Lucca.

More Details

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.
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.
