    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.

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

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: International Blend
International blend coffee refers to a blend of coffee beans sourced from different regions or countries worldwide. International blends combine beans with distinct flavor profiles and characteristics, resulting in a harmonious and complex cup of coffee. The quality of an international blend depends on the expertise of the coffee roaster, who carefully selects and combines beans to achieve a specific flavor and balance. Roasters who excel in crafting international blends have a deep understanding of the different growing regions, varietals, and processing methods.
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.
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.
