ESP - 1
This is our 'gold standard' awesome Espresso blend that tastes like: Tamarind, apricot, ripe blue berries and a bit vegetal!
Espresso blends vary by seasonal availability around the globe. Our smooth espresso blends are nearly always a 75% smooth and full bodied South American coffee blended with 25% of an African coffee from either Ethiopia or Kenya which have a bit of a fruity acidity on the back of your tongue like a blackberry, raspberry or strawberry. Too little African and you get a bit of a bland taste. Too much and the lovely acidity becomes overpowering which can make the taste sour or bitter. To make the best espresso aim for these targets for a double espresso: 200 degree F brew temp, 18 grams of finely ground espresso coffee, tamped level so that it takes 23-25 seconds to brew 35 grams of espresso through your machine.
