    I wrestled with scoring this one a little bit after making it three different ways. It's not exactly what I drink or right in line with my preferences for espresso, but I can pretty plainly see why a cafe would want this as their house espresso blend.

    First off, White Spider Espresso is really tasty and versatile. It pulls a gorgeous, syrupy espresso with a huge crema. It has a great mouthfeel and nails the chocolate and caramel notes. There's a lot of natural sweetness and a hint of a coconut macaroon. It hits some dark roast notes, most notably the spice and some smokiness.

    I think it drinks medium dark on my spectrum, I'm ok with the medium designation. I think you are expecting a very fruity, floral espresso, this isn't it.

    I also made an iced Americano and a latte with White Spider and both came out just as you'd expect at an outstanding specialty coffee shop.

    Cupping Method:Latte - very good
    Iced Americano - super good
    Espresso - super good

    This is very good espresso and I'd be very happy with a latte made with it any day of the week.

    This medium roast pulls expertly from light and dark qualities. It has a light mouthfeel, low acid, and dark roast flavors that hit deep notes of caramel brownie. Even though this roast is labeled as an espresso, I sampled it as a Vietnamese drip.

    Cupping Method:Vietnamese drip

    Loved this as an espresso on its own, and it made a thoroughly enjoyable latte too.

    Fabulous deep, chocolate and slightly fruity aroma. Spot on dark/French roast. Very chocolate, smooth, smoky, notably a touch spicy in the pepper range. Some cherry/blackberry acidity gives it balance.

    Cupping Method:Espresso shot with my Spaziale A53, 95C temp

    This roast is "supafly"! Crafted as a medium roast, it expertly balances the best of both ends of the spectrum-- a light acidity and slight astringency melds with notes of toasted oat and caramel.

    I was loving this one - it gave off a great chocolately note and a satisfying rich mouthfeel for me.

    I enjoyed this coffee both as espresso and pourover. I think it is actually better as espresso. As espresso it is fun and complex - clear florality, hints of bergamot and fresh strawberry alongside bittersweet dark chocolate.

    As pourover, it drank very clean and smooth, with a touch of almond nuttiness mid-palate. The acidity didn't quite fully express itself, but it's a light lemon touch. I couldn't imagine anyone would be disappointed with it though.

    Cupping Method:Espresso, 95C extraction in my A53 Spaziale. Hario v60 pourover.

Editor's Overview

We sampled 5 Snake River roasts, and we were very impressed. It's a little bit different from the roaster I normally favor - Snake River is very buttoned up - they've got their act together. The website, the packaging, the buyer experience, Instagram, all very slick. But there's substance there. Their blends and roast quality are spot on, and the flavor and liveliness of the coffee is there. Each of their medium and dark blends we tried made both good filter and espresso coffee.
