The NO.3 Espresso is one of three core espresso blends we offer yearly. It was devised by ACE to emulate Southern Italian Espresso Trends that offers a full and rich flavour that is more bitter than sweet. It has an excellent body that stretches itself when added to hot water for an Americano. It also has a lot of bitterness and sweetness that overtakes milk-based beverages.
We generally look for coffees that are inherently low-acidity with ample body. We currently use a Nicaraguan coffee from Jinotega, and a Brazil coffee sourced from top lots in Espirito Santo. These two coffees give this blend a very distinct dark chocolate flavour that's complex and rich with caramel flavours. We then make the use of a Colombian coffee called Mattaredonda to further the caramel and sugary notes.
BLEND: Colombia, Nicaragua, & Brazil
NOTES: Dark Chocolate, Caramel, Toffee, with a rich body
