About this espresso

The Tres Banderas ("Three Flags") hails from three different countries: Honduras, Guatemala, and Ethiopia. We tried something a little different with this espresso by balancing the sweet chocolatey body of the Guayabales with the tart and fruity Shakiso. What we get is a tremendously well balanced espresso with hints of ripe fruits while maintaining the fuller body you want from an espresso. As always, we roast this espresso a little differently than our other coffees, developing the sweet sugars that produce a balanced (not bitter!) espresso.


Tasting Notes

Apricot, Honey, Dark Chocolate


Espresso Parameters

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.
