A bold espresso with a real kick, but polished and refined like a gentleman. It pulls a rich, dark shot; the perfect companion for any morning.
Thick and rich with hints of berry, chocolate and spice, Lighthouse Roaster's Espresso Blend manages flawless depth of character without a trace of bitterness.
"This was a very oily roast. I found it to be very bitter. I typically like a rich and dark espresso, but this one isn’t it for me. I made one espresso on my semi automatic machine and then tossed the beans. "
"Truly enjoyed this coffee. Very rich. Automatic espresso machine. Wonderful as a shot. Enjoyed it with half and half no sugar. No bitterness. Very smooth. "
"I've had many dark roasts before and all had a bitter end note that I had to cut with sugar. This dark blend, however, did not. It has all the dark roast full-bodied flavors with no bitterness. This has been the best dark roast I've had. I use the pour over method and for espresso. "
"Ended up getting a bag of this in my sampler box by surprise. Lighthouse is right down the street from where I live, so they're my go-to. If you get it real fresh then it's a great brew, though it's a bit bitter sometimes. Extracts fantastically from my breville 870xl, is kind of my gold standard."
"This was a true disappointment. I am thinking maybe I got a bad batch or something, but the flavor profile was really off. It was too dark and bitter for me; tried one cup as a latte using a Breville BaristoPro machine and couldn't drink it. Threw the remaining beans out. "
" This coffee is a deep, dark delicious blend. Slight notes of chocolate. It could've had a deeper complexity to it, but is still very delicious. "
"Oh snap! This one was delicious! Brewed with an aeropress, the rich/deep chocolate flavors really came out and made for a deliciously warming cup of coffee. Perfect when paired with something vaguely sweet (or chocolatey!). Will buy this one again."
"Enjoyed this blend. Dark and earthy, made an excellent Americano."
