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!
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 will take one or two business days to ship from our roastery. If you place an order on the weekend, it will not be processed until Monday. Don’t fret, you’ll get an email update when your box of happiness is on the way!
