A sweet and long lasting espresso with just a touch of citrus. This is not an espresso-roast (read: burnt). This is a medium roast espresso blend. It's made up of our sweeter coffees combined with some more full bodied ones to result in an espresso that is sweet with just a hint of brightness. It plays very well in milk drinks and sits on it's own with no problem at all. read more
Let's clear this up: If a coffee is labeled espresso "roast," what you're getting is burnt coffee. It will be bitter and all of its natural flavors killed off. The beans will be closer to charcoal black than a warm brown color. What you want for your lattes, americanos and the like is an espresso "blend."
A true espresso blend is usually a medium roast coffee designed to bring out out all of the underlying flavors of the beans that are in the blend. It's flavors have been matched to sit well with milk-based drinks or enjoyed on its own like you're sitting outside a Parisian cafe with one of those tiny cups of heavenly espresso.
