Black Squirrel is a twist on classic coffeehouse espresso. Lying somewhere between a romantic Italian coffee bar and a new world cafe, this blend is punchy and sweet, yet smooth and refined. Made with home espresso aficionados in mind, it also makes a fantastic brewed cup!

Acidity: soft

Body: syrupy

Aroma: cardamom, wine, dried herbs, & dark chocolate

Tasting Notes: caramel, vanilla, dried fruit, toasted oats

For a fine shot of espresso to start your day, we recommend using a scale. Weigh out 18 grams of coffee in a double shot portafilter, tamp, and brew with 200° water for 22-27 seconds aiming for a target weight of 40 grams (yes, weigh the pulled shot as well. It should be around 2 fluid oz by volume).

Fresh coffee means your order may take a day or two to ship from our roastery. Don’t fret, you’ll get an email update when your box of happiness is on the way!
