The Trouble with Single Origin Espresso

Single varietal espresso is sometimes good, but it is not always the best way to present a coffee or enjoy an espresso. I prefer an espresso in which the acidity and brightness are balanced by a depth of body often not found in light roast single origin offerings.

And while this is true when drinking a double shot of espresso straight, it can become more important as part of a latte drink, where light roasts can lack a boldness or backbone to shine through the milk.

Roasting a good espresso to be balanced and subtle at the same time is not necessarily a one-bean-fits-all proposition.

When it comes to roasting coffee beans for espresso, my philosophy is balance. The issue with many single origin espressos is that they are not roasted to be balanced, but to be extraordinary in some way. They succeed in being tart and tangy, but are left without enough body to balance out the bright notes of the coffee.

If I were to use a beer analogy, its like a pale ale that is a little hoppy but drinks smoothly, versus one that is really hoppy and sharp on the palate. That's the kind of flavor difference we are talking about with espresso too.

While I do have a few single origin coffees that make an excellent espresso shot (the Organic Ethiopia Natural Hambela, for example) usually that's a secondary consideration for me, and a bonus of the varietal! Most of the time, I roast coffee for coffee and espresso for espresso. My espresso roast profiles are formulated specifically for an espresso extraction. The result is a balanced yet nuanced cup.

If you enjoy espresso, try one of our blends especially roasted to bring out the best in your brew:

Trianon Espresso (Classic cafe favorite since 1985!) 
Organic Espresso 
Decaf Espresso 

 

Single Origin Espresso Isn't Always Best

The lottery is very easy to win, but only when you find the right person that can help you for real, that is the only way you can become a big lottery winner. I will share my experience with Dr Lucas to you because i want you to be a partaker of the blessings of Dr Lucas, I lost a lot of money to the wrong people trying to win the lottery, but i never stopped trying because i know I’m destined to win, when i was doing some searchings online i came across Dr Lucas and i took his email and WhatsApp numbers and messaged him, he was so real to me and didn’t waste a lot of time before he started working on my winning numbers, I’m Yanira Alvarez from Los Angeles, the Powerball’s $1.8B jackpot winner, you can do research about my winning, this is not a joke spell still works, the numbers Dr.Lucas gave me to play was 7, 10, 11, 13, 24, and 24. I urge everyone trying to win the lottery to reach out to Dr.Lucas on Email drlucasspelltemple@gmail.com or WhatsApp +234 904 794 3567 Thank You.
