Your Destination for the Perfect Brewing Supplies: Beer, Wine, Cheese and More
Not so very long ago, I saw mention of a coffee blend online that was comprised of Brazilian, Ethiopian, and Sumatran beans. I tinkered with it for a while, and once I was happy with it we released it as the Big Squeezy. This is a slightly modified & more developed roast of the same components, designed specifically as a medium-roast espresso blend. We’ve found that it brings a nice brightness and complexity as a shot, while still holding up well in milk. As a drip brew, you can expect aromatics of citrus, toffee, and berries with notes of cocoa, almond butter, blueberry, and lime in the cup with a slightly earthy finish. It’s named La Reina, or “the queen,” after my wife’s cat Eowyn, the undeniable queen of our house.
Roast Level - 4 (medium)
