Getting product details...

This coffee has been developed in response to demand and a particular need. This is a darker roast coffee specifically aimed at home espresso machines where the user might not possess a grinder, bean to cup machines and those people that seek out the darker more intense roast styles.

The bean is Fazenda Cruzeiro, roasted to this profile. At this roast level the dark chocolate notes really punch out complimented by the toasted sesame carried over from the lighter roast level. Great brewed or as an intense espresso.
Having undertaken testing on a range of home espresso and bean to cup machines I found that limitations of the equipment meant that lighter roasted coffee was less suited since controlling the acidity levels was more challenging. I have therefore developed this style so that home users can experience and enjoy high quality single estate beans without having to buy the robusta laden low grade coffees available in supermarkets.

It is my intention to change this bean with the seasons and offer what I believe is the most suited current single estate bean for the purpose. The aim is to roast the beans so that acidity levels are much reduced, extraction of coffee solids is easier and overall the coffee is less grind sensitive than the more contemporary Seasonal Espresso Blend.

Espresso brewers please note. Tests revealed this needs a coarser grind setting for espresso than both the Las Mercedes Black bag and the current Seasonal Espresso blend.
