Locofocos means “crazy lights”: a name shared by 19th century radical Democrats and a brand of self-lighting matches. What type of spark will this espresso inspire in you?
Conduit's premier blend, Locofocos placed 2nd in "America's Best Espresso" competition at Coffee Fest Seattle '12. A seasonal reformulation of our espresso blend for versatile brewing. Nutty and smooth with a strong Brazilian component, for all the nuance of a darker roast while maintaining the origin character. Creamy and floral on the light end with rich dark chocolate on the fuller end. Very drinkable and easy to work with for steady use or casual brewing with any method.
"Locofocos is a really great espresso blend. I made it with an espresso machine. The result was very smooth espresso with a creamy, dark chocolate and floral flavor. Just purchased a big bag of it. " (4 out of 5)
"Definitely a nutty flavor, which I am not very fond of. It came across as somewhat bitter and didn't have as nice of a crema as most other espressos I have tried. Not a bad roast, but I will not be ordering it in the future." (3 out of 5)
"Great! Definitely better warm, one that makes you slow down and savor. Very rich, full bodied flavor. Reminds you of a cozy feeling. Overall very good, one of my favorites so far." (5 out of 5)
"Definitely had a floral aftertaste. Chocolatey. Really good!" (5 out of 5)
