A bold roast with a heavy body and a spicy, almost old-world flavor. Ideal for espresso (duh) but also a delicious treat for a dark-roast lover who wields a mean french press.
Layers of flavor and texture starting with a sweet meyer lemon acidity, black cherry and marionberry fruitiness in deep tamarind chocolate liquor with spicy cardamom, clove and fresh tobacco mixed in. Bridging the gap between the old world and new with direct source relationships, high elevation coffees, and blending for balance in a complete espresso.
"One of my favorite coffee blends. I keep this on hand as a stand by!"
"Definitely makes a solid espresso! I was intrigued by the description but not entirely sure how much I would like it. After trying it, however, it won me over. Maybe not my most favourite, but I enjoyed it and would happily drink it again."
"Herkimer is one of my favorite coffee shops and coffees. I love their espresso blend for americanos. It is a very smooth, delicious coffee."
"I did not think we'd like it based on its description, but we were pleasantly surprised. It has a really neat flavor. It has a good balance of the bold notes so they don't overpower the lighter notes."
"This wasn't my favorite blend as far as flavors go, it also wasn't as dark as I prefer. "
"This is a very solid espresso. The more I drink it, the more I like it. Recommended!"
"Very unique flavor, the tobacco definitely adds something you don't find elsewhere! "
"Used it as an espresso and was too acidic to drink on its own, but pretty good as a cappuccino."
"I like this one. My boyfriend did not. I enjoy a strong cup with or without milk... him, not so much, it needs to be cut with milk in his opinion. "
"Acidic, bitter, with hints of tobacco. It's drinkable, with milk or creamer. "
"This is a unique coffee & some people will love while others will not. I enjoyed it very much and would order again."
"Beans smell like juicy, ripe berries. Made it into my usual double 12 oz latte and it worked beautifully. Rich and round chocolatey flavors. "
"Tried as espresso first, but the acidity was too much for me, so next time made a breve and it was palatable, but disappointing."
"Very nice espresso bean will order again. Earthy and rich."
"Good, rich cup of coffee. I enjoyed Herkimer espresso blend. "
"Great espresso!!! Would definitely purchase again!"
"Enjoyable but not excellent. I don't think I will be getting this again, middle forks Ethiopian was better in my opinion, and slightly cheaper. "
"Great espresso. I loved the finish. One of our new go-to coffee makers. Herkimer is known for there quality!"
"Herkimer's espresso blend is delicious if you're a fan of dark chocolatey coffees. It has very distinctive tobacco notes that I really enjoyed in the mornings relaxing in my recliner. My girlfriend found the tobacco a bit overpowering though, so your enjoyment of this blend is tied to that taste."
"My new favorite espresso. Great balance of bright citrus acidity, berry sweetness, and chocolatey roasted coffee flavors with subtle background spices that were more pronounced in milk drinks. Tasted best as a ristretto: 18g beans for 21-24g espresso in 25 seconds, using 199° water. "
"We drink it in the morning and it made a great cortado"
