About this espresso

You know what they say “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”...but what if we just want to improve upon it? Amplify it? Diversify it? We’re constantly looking for ways to offer new and different options to our customers and this season our roaster extraordinaire decided to dream up a new espresso blend!

Rather than replace our Tres Banderas Blend, this is meant to serve as an alternative for the lighter, fruitier-leaning folks. With the characteristic balanced richness of an espresso blend it also offers something most espresso blends don’t typically offer - fruity and bright qualities in addition to its sweetness.

Oh, and for those wondering, this coffee does not contain essence of Blue Heron, nor will it give you the soaring capabilities of one - rather, it’s been named after the majestic bird our roaster Winston sees on his daily walks at the park...if you drink enough of it though, you’ll probably feel like you can fly*!

Espresso Parameters

The name speaks for itself! This coffee will certainly taste best when served as espresso.We like our espresso at a 1:2 ratio, meaning the final shot volume is twice the weight of the coffee used. So, an 18g shot of espresso would yield 36g of liquid. The extraction should take 24 to 27 seconds.
