The NO.1 Espresso is one of three core espresso blends we offer yearly. It was devised by ACE to emulate the Italian Tradition of Espresso here in Canada. Its balanced in sweetness, acidity, and bitterness and is excellent as both an espresso or in a milk beverage.
While the blend components may change throughout the year due to seasonality, it never loses its almond-like sweetness. The backbone of this espresso is a Costa Rica coffee called El Indio, and it delivers a heavy mouthfeel with plenty of chocolate and tropical nut notes. We also utilize a Guatemalan coffee from New Oriente due to its upfront liveliness and distinct almond sweetness. There is also wonderful anise, liquorice aroma and mild citrus notes from a washed Ethiopia coffee from the region Sidamo.
ORIGIN / BLEND: Costa Rica, Guatemala & Ethiopia
