About this espresso

The Tres Banderas ("Three Flags") hails from three different countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador and Ethiopia. We tried something a little different with this blend by balancing the sweet chocolatey body of the Buena Vista with the tartness and crisp acidity of the Costa Rican. The Ethiopian component adds a bit more intrigue with unique - yet subtle - spiciness and floral qualities. What we get is a tremendously well balanced blend with hints of ripe fruits while maintaining the fuller body you may be craving. As always, we roast this blend a little differently than our other coffees, developing the sweet sugars that produce a balanced, full bodied coffee that can be served either as espresso or filter coffee.

Tasting Notes

Apricot, Honey, Dark Chocolate

Espresso Parameters

If you choose to enjoy Tres Banderas as an 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.
