For a fine shot of espresso to start your day, we recommend using a scale. Weigh out 18 grams of organic espresso beans, grind for espresso then dose in a double-shot portafilter, tamp, and brew with 200° water for 22-27 seconds aiming for a target weight of 40 grams.

    — Heather Anne W.

  6. I absolutely love this coffee! A local coffee shop sells it and now I buy it for my home espresso maker. It’s smooth, produces a nice crema, and isn’t bitter or acidic.

    — Casey K.

  7. Lovely espresso! Doesn’t taste bitter and great for lattes!

    — Kristin M.

    — Nick L.

  9. Our favorite espresso beans. Nicely balanced dark flavor without tasting burnt. Fantastic as an espresso, an Americano or even with some dark chocolate chips and Frothed milk

    — Joanna H.

  10. Smooth, deep, thoughtful. Espresso or drip, Black Squirrel is the only one for me.

    — Sharon P.

  11. My go to espresso! Its delicious!

    — Ann E.

  12. Yummy, smooth – a great medium roast!

    — Andria F.

  13. If you’re looking for a less caffeinated darker roast for a press late in the afternoon, this coffee is very chocolatey and is one you’ll want to return to!

    — Jerielle H.

  14. We alternate between this and the Birchwood Blend. Black Squirrel is a wonderful, creamy, rich coffee that works wonderfully as a brewed coffee as well as for espresso.

    — Adam S.

  15. Finally decided to get an espresso maker and this blend was the only reason I was successful. It is so good! We love Peace Coffee and are so grateful for all they do in our community. Keep doing what you are doing!

    — Stacie W.

  16. Great for espresso or mixing in with a light roast to create your own blend!

    — David K.

  17. My favorite roast! I have it every morning. I used to alternate this roast with the birchwood one and always found myself liking this one juuust a bit more! It’s incredibly smooth, very balanced and whenever I drink other coffee this is the high standard it has to live up to! I subscribe to the big ol’ bag and I don’t see myself ever looking back! Thanks Peace Coffee- you also have the most incredible and friendly customer service, love y’all!

    — Michelle S.

  18. Dark and creamy, very good!

    — Elizabeth T.
