Beansmith Coffee – Tigerlily Espresso May 31 2016
Our premium espresso blend is named for its amazing striping in its buttery crema. This Northern Italian style espresso is carefully roasted to a “full city” roast, yielding a flavorful shot that’s not over-roasted or burnt tasting. Home baristas and coffee shop pros have been raving about this espresso, and we consider it to be our definitive blend.
This season’s Tigerlily presents a silky body with soft fruit notes and a hint of earthiness.
Espresso blending is a relatively young art, and has gone through many trends over the course of the past 100 years. Crema-obsessed traditional Italian blends (that include robusta) have given way to “bold” American French roast blends, and more recently, to a new world of lighter roasted blends and even single origin espressos that boast exciting notes of tangy goodness.
Whether it is to be used as the base of a frothy latte, or to be sipped as a stand-alone treat, Beansmith is always chasing the perfect shot. We pull our inspiration from the art of blending that has come before us, but challenge ourselves to discover whatever is around the next corner, playing off the intense flavors of today’s specialty coffees.
We offer espressos that range from familiar to challenging, letting taste be our guide.
