Notes from our Roaster: 

ESPRESSO
A good espresso should taste as sweet and complex as a filter coffee. Since espresso is simply an intense concentration of a coffee, using quality coffee becomes even more important. Our filter roasts would be quite acidic on espresso, but our espresso roasts (even though look nearly just as light) are more developed to highlight this quality coffee’s sweetness. If you drink an espresso roast as a filter coffee, you’ll notice subtle bitterness, but it will shine as espresso. To best dial in, this bag size is larger than our filter coffees.

THE UNIQUE STORY
On the search for a smooth and chocolatey espresso, we came upon the perfect lot by Robson Vilela Martins, a Cup of Excellence winner. This coffee is also 100% Yellow Bourbon, a varietal known for sweetness, smooth aroma, and citrus acidity. Together, this makes a very unique and distinct smooth espresso that you are sure to love… whether drinking by itself, or paired with milk.

ADDITIONAL INFO
Fazenda Moinho is a 120-hectare farm with 100 hectares planted with coffee, a total of about 600,000 trees. The farm is owned by Robson Vilela Martins, Robson was a dentist in his former life, and now he is the owner of several farms and a Cup of Excellence winner, as well as very high-scoring producer from Carmo Best Cup. “I always ask the opinion of the employees in my day-to-day life,” Robson said. “I never make an important decision alone because they were born here, they know a lot about coffee, and I always learn a lot from them. Every morning we gathered under a big tree near the farmyard where we talked and discussed the activities that each one will carry out on that day.”
