Espresso Retro From Organic Espresso Beans

Espresso Retro is a dark roast Italian style espresso. A really, really dark roast. But despite the darkness of the roast, you can still taste clear notes of rich chocolate, lingering tangerine and orange peel. It’s produced from heavy Sidama Ethiopian organic espresso beans blended with other seasonal coffees for a consistent profile which is smokey, bittersweet and a little spicey, with a lingering aftertaste which will leave you wanting more. You won’t find this in our local Florida cafes, Espresso Retro is an exclusive retail coffee.

An organic espresso shot results from brewing coffee through the fast and high-pressure espresso method. While regular coffee beans are great for a variety of brewing methods, espresso coffee beans hold up best under high-pressure methods. These dark-roasted beans can be identified by their dark brown color and shiny, oily surface. However, despite being dark-roasted, you can still smell and taste slight hints of the bean flavor too. The fine-ground specialty coffee is packed tight in a basket called a portafilter, which is then placed into an espresso machine. It’s then tamped into the portafilter using thirty to forty pounds of pressure. Hot water is then pushed through the machine at high pressure. The resulting shot is thick and full-flavored with just the right amount of crema, which enhances your espresso experience. We often use this shot as a base for other drinks we serve in our cafes, like the macchiato and cappuccino.
