Virtuoso Espresso is our unique twist on the classic European style. We wanted to make an Expresso that had the same richness and body that we all grew up having, with a slight twist.
First off, this coffee is a three bean blend from three different countries. These coffees traveled approximately 17,000 miles for us to create what you taste in the cup. As for roasting, each one of these unique coffees was roasted to achieve its own unique characteristic: one for body and richness; one for the the deep chocolate notes; and the other (which is my personal favorite) for the subtle citrus notes that make this blend stand out from the rest. I hope you all enjoy this coffee as much as we did developing it.
We recently submitted this coffee into Coffee Review to see how it would hold up against a panel of experts. We wanted to get their thoughts on our rendition of this European style of espresso. Needless to say we were very happy to find out that they loved it as much as we did, by scoring it a 94 point coffee. On top of that this coffee was rated one of the top 15 coffee of 2015.
