Character: Deep, Medium
Acidity: Balanced

A medium roast espresso with a heavy body and a deep milk chocolate profile complemented by sweet berry tones (blueberry and currant). Floral notes intertwine with the heavy body to make a very complex, excellent espresso. The currant comes through in the finish along with a spicy fragrance. This Italian style espresso coffee blend holds its power and characteristics even with the addition of steamed milk. Enjoy! The blending for espresso drinks is tricky because the extraction of the flavors takes place in 18-25 seconds, as opposed to the four minutes of the drip method. Balance between acidity and flavor at this rapid rate of extraction is not easy to achieve, and we have worked on this blend for a decade. It is a favorite of our restaurant and café accounts. There are coffees from three continents in this blend, which is specially formulated for rich crema (coffee foam). The result of a properly pulled espresso using this blend is a delightfully smooth espresso, not at all toasty or burnt-like, but intense enough to show up and vote in a latte or cappuccino.

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.
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.
