Roasted Espresso is back!

Back by popular demand (sort of)! We are now offering Roasted Espresso again! Some months ago when we introduced our regular roasted “Coffee Pairings” we stopped offering roasted espresso and roasted decaf. We think that the roasted coffee pairings are working out well; and now we are bringing back roasted espresso! We will offer one Espresso Workshop blend and one Standard blend for sale each week. Or maybe it will be a Single Origin espresso, or two Workshop blends – we’ll see what strikes us. We plan to roast the coffee and keep it in stock as an inventory item – so you can add the coffee to an existing order and it all ship together. We do have another set of four Coffee Pairings listed now too – so you can order the set, or just one, for the next few weeks.  Maria

    Doesn’t roasted espresso have a relatively short window of freshness? 5, maybe 7, days? What’s the time lag between you roasting the beans and them getting to consumers?

    Really, the opposite. At 5 days post roast an espresso is just coming into it’s peak. For me, many blends are too fresh at 48 hours and start to become something you can really evaluate at 3 days. 10-14 days is well within a window for great espresso if it has been promptly put in a valve bag after roasting, which means it has self-flushed O-2. Now roasted coffee for drip brew is different. We estimate the latest an order would be sent is 4 days post roast.

    Good point. I home roast espresso, but I start using them on Day 2, which means the airtight container that I use to store them in is opened and closed, which probably shortens the lifespan of the roast by half. I notice that after a week the espresso takes a very noticeable turn for the worse.
