Espresso is the base and heart of our Specialty Coffee drinks. We have created a Northern Italian style of espresso. That is to say, it’s not French roasted. Our espresso is light, sweet, and features a naturally processed Brazilian coffee. It produces a smooth, citrusy-sweet cup. This lighter, more delicately roasted espresso can only be perfectly extracted by an astute trained Barista. The darker the espresso, the smaller the margin for error on the part of the Barista, and so, it is with great care that our Baristas are trained and educated, not to mention their experience level and natural affinity for creating the best espresso shot possible.
High pressure and high temperature water are forced through finely ground, tightly, evenly packed espresso in the portafilter in just about 20-30 seconds. The result is 2 ounces of espresso. The perfect cup, served straight, or combined in any number of special ways with milk creates most any drink on an espresso bar menu.
