About This Coffee

We developed this espresso over five years ago for the launch of our Kiosk on Linden Street. This is probably our darkest espresso: lower-toned, minimal brightness, plenty of chocolate – with an engaging complexity as a straight shot. The shots are gorgeous: achingly heavy with voluptuous red-brown crema, and the silky, somewhat dangerous-looking viscosity of a power-steering stop-leak product once used on our (now departed) heroically battered 1983 Peugeot. In milk, it tastes like chocolate ovaltine, and holds its own from the daintiest 3oz Macchiato to our towering 12oz caffe latte. This is the most Brahmsian espresso we have. Brooding and autumnal, it is a coffee to mourn the passing of time.

Notes
  • All of our blends (both the individual components and the blend itself) are tested weekly by our professional tasters to ensure quality and deliciousness.
  • For our whole bean coffee, 24 hours is the maximum time that could possibly pass between roasting our coffee in Oakland and shipping it to you. (It's usually even less.)
  • Cupping spoons and a practiced palate are the key instruments of our Quality Control team, who taste, evaluate, and refine our coffees every day.
  • Certified Organic by CCOF
