Coffee Description

This is an espresso blend that’ll work equally well as drip coffee: approachable, creamy, balanced. Central and Southern American coffees blend for an outstanding shot of espresso. Blending is an art and a science: interpreting the positive qualities of each component, determining the ideal percentages of each, and roasting each separate bean to its ultimate potential. In Upper Left Roasters’ interpretation, the result is both approachable and complex. Owner Katherine Harris says, “Our espresso blend is, first and foremost, balanced; sweet and chocolatey, rich and smooth. It’s unassuming and classic and that’s, really, what we love about it. Easy to drink and it shines oh so perfectly in milk.”
