Years ago, we learned the coffee business from our friends at Hines Public Market Coffee in Seattle's Eastlake neighborhood. Sadly, that little rickety shop with its five-group La Marzocco Linea espresso machine and 1955 Probat UG-22 coffee roaster is long gone but the flavor of that heady era remains.
This is the flavor that truly kicked off coffees' "Third Wave" - a classic, now "Old School" espresso. A blend of coffees designed to bring out notes of rich dark chocolate, berry fruit and a lingering nutty finish. Excellent with milk, a properly pulled shot will give off thick, reddish-brown crema (perfect for latte art), round body and low acidity/brightness.
Whether as a doppio espresso, Americano, cappuccino or latte, this is the espresso that rises to all occasions and is roundly pleasing. One of our favorite ways to enjoy this espresso is as a double-shot in a six ounce cup filled with water, a little sugar and a little cream. Float the espresso on top so it maintains the crema and it's just coffee perfection!
