The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf built its business on this signature blend. To create our Espresso Roast Blend, we roast four select origin coffees to perfection, then combine them to create the perfect base for our espresso drinks. Our Espresso Roast Blend is expressive and subtle enough to be enjoyed as a straight shot, yet assertive enough for the perfect latte.
Special Note: Our 12 oz ground is prepared for the traditional coffee maker and not Espresso Machines. Please select Whole Bean and grind as needed if you are preparing Espresso.
Profile: Velvety body with caramel like aroma, earthy flavor and a bittersweet finish. This blend captures a full range of origin characteristics from crisp and bright to syrupy, earthy and full bodied. The range of roast degrees lends more complexity and versatility.
Place: Costa Rica, Guatemala, Papua New Guinea, Sumatra
People: Our experienced roasters prepare this blend to work well as a drip coffee and provide a balanced profile that lends well to lattes, cappuccinos, or as a straight shot.
Process: Each origin coffee is carefully roasted individually to its optimum level and then combined in the right proportion to create the final blend. There are a total of four coffees, one roasted at two levels, resulting in five individual blend components.
Pairing: Caramel, dark chocolate, chocolate cake, rum cake.
