Our 15 core coffees are artfully roasted to craft a flavor profile that uniquely showcases the specific flavor notes that originate while the beans are grown and emerge during the roasting process. Our Roastmasters blend each blend of coffee after the beans have been roasted to create a taste profile that is balanced, richly flavorful and distinctive. Join us as we dive deeper into each of our 15 core blends and single origin coffees, highlighting the growing region, analyzing its flavors and providing ideal pairings. Today we spotlight our H.C. Valentine 100% Organic Signature Espresso, a complex medium roast blend of 100% organic coffees.
The beans of our H.C. Valentine 100% Organic Signature Espresso are comprised of five different coffees from Asia, Central and South America. Beans sourced from Asia tend to have a deep, dark, almost meaty earthiness to them, and take well to dark roasting. It should come as no surprise then that these beans have a stout, almost toasty finish to them. In contrast, Central America beans are expected to have varying levels of acidity, and a smooth, sugary sweetness that is sometimes soft or even buttery. Mild fruit-like characteristics add a polite balance to the mix. Lastly, beans grown in South America are known for their classic profile: a mildly acidic taste complimented by caramel and nutty undertones. These medium-bodied delights are the most recognized in North America, and for good reason. What makes our Signature Espresso such a masterpiece is the sum of its parts – it simply contains the best the world’s top-producing coffee regions have to offer.
This complex blend of five 100% organic coffees humbly swirls in your mouth. With a creamy body and winy acidity, this espresso boasts delicate notes of red fruit, spice, caramel and toasted nuts. The sheer complexity of its taste scored a perfect 100 and won a gold medal for the best tasting 100% organic espresso in America by American Masters of Taste, a Chefs in America food, beverage and culinary organization. You can be certain of one thing: when you partake in our award-winning Signature Espresso, your taste buds are in for a wonderful experience.
This espresso’s rich complexity pairs delectably well with any breakfast, lunch, or afternoon treat. With a clean, medium-length finish, it’s a perfect straight shot and holds up nicely in milk. For the sweets lover, it also compliments almost any dessert, making it a perfectly suitable brew to sip on with virtually any meal you choose.
