Eye of the Tiger Espresso

Profile:

Presenting the ninth version of Eye of the Tiger Espresso. This time our seasonally changing espresso is a blend that features a trio of coffees we have been enjoying as single-origin offerings. Unlike our year-round espresso blends, we do not attempt to maintain a fixed flavor profile for Eye of the Tiger. Instead we work with in-season coffees to develop a blend that shows off the flavors of the components. This recipe is very loosely based on Devorah's Competition Espresso, a blend used by our barista trainer in the regional and national barista competitions a few years ago.

The foundation of this blend combines two coffees from northern Burundi's Kayanza growing region. These coffees originate from the communities of Nyangwe and Bubezi and provide flavors of hazelnut, chocolate and low-acid fruit. The Kayanza region is known for producing some of the best coffee in Burundi and the Mpanga washing station, where these coffees were processed, is one of the best. In fact, coffee from the Mpanga washing station took first and third place in the most recent Burundi Cup of Excellence competition. We combined these two coffees with the balanced floral and spice-toned El Batan, an old favorite from Ecuador. Together these coffees, along with a decisive roast profile, produce a sweet-toned espresso that tastes great in milk and on its own.

We will roast this version of Eye of the Tiger as long as the blend components last.

Cupping Notes:

Flavor of fruit-toned dark chocolate, hazelnut and delicate pipe tobacco.
