FLAVOR: Fudge, Almond, Butterscotch
Notes of sweet fudge, nutty almond, and creamy butterscotch come through with our Dharma Espresso Blend. This medium-bodied espresso ends in a bittersweet, lingering finish that is great as a single shot or when prepared with milk or milk alternative.
Our Dharma Espresso Blend incorporates three distinct coffees from three different parts of the coffee-producing world. The first component comes from Minas Gerais, Brazil. Grown high in the municipality of Campos Altos, the coffee collected in this region offers a dense, creamy body, plus contributes notes of rich chocolate and a subtle maple syrup sweetness.
The second coffee component comes from Sidamo, Ethiopia. Coffees from Ethiopia offer a noteworthy fruit-like sweetness, and this coffee component is no different. Providing a stone fruit sweetness and fullness in body, this Natural process coffee adds complexity and depth to this espresso.
The third coffee from Alotenango, Guatemala is a recent addition to our Dharma Espresso Blend. This coffee is produced by Luis Pedro Zelaya Aguirre. It is harvested and wet milled by Candelaria Estate and dry milled at Bella Vista. Luis Pedro purchased Candelaria Estate in 2005, and has steadily grown the Zelaya family's coffee producing business ever since.
Although each coffee maintains its own unique qualities, each of them comes together to create one harmonious tasting experience in our Dharma Espresso Blend. Enjoy!
