+This old school blend of coffees brings to mind exactly what you think of when you channel that "perfect, Italian style shot of espresso you had on vacation 15 years ago". You'll pull shots with a sweet aroma, rich with delicate cocoa and sweetness. Ribbons of dark chocolate, sweet citrus, and deeper roasty flavors round out the shot. You can brew great filter coffee with this blend, too, but we meticulously selected these ratios with espresso in mind.
+All decaffeinated coffees look like a darker roast level than they are. Caffeinated 'green' (unroasted) coffee beans are a pale silver/ green / light brown color before roasting, and roast up to the color you are familiar with related to their roast level. Decaf coffees, on the other hand, darken through the decaffeination process, so a medium roasted decaf ends up looking like a dark roast.

**Coffee ships in our house kraft paper bags.

We find that when blended correctly, the result can be greater than the sum of its parts. Our house blends have developed over the years by playing with flavor mixing in an attempt to explore the hard to reach corners of tasting charts. If you're someone who "likes x but wishes it was a little more this" or "loves x but wishes it wasn't so strong," blends are your friend. When browsing blends, if you are uncertain about anything, please feel free to call and talk to us in person. We find that it is much easier to match you with the perfect blend by asking a few short questions that an online experience just can't quite deliver.
