It is very uncommon to find an espresso blend made from coffees of one single origin, but since we have access to 2 farms at different elevations, and the ability to process our coffee many different ways, we are able to create an incredibly balanced blend with coffees from just one region. Washed bourbon coffee from the lower elevation Ayutepeque gives the blend a base of rich caramel, chocolate, and nut flavors, while the natural processed bourbon from el Manzno provides an intense fruit sweetness and syrupy body.
there are many variables to consider when preparing espresso, differences in water chemistry, temperature, and pressure can effect the taste dramatically. These are the parameters we use in our shop with our water and equipment and should provide a good starting point at home:
Dose: 19 g
Espresso: 40 g
Time: 26-30 seconds
