Eye of the Tiger Espresso

Profile:

We are pleased to present the fourth edition of Eye of the Tiger Espresso. For the uninitiated, Eye of the Tiger is a seasonal featured blend or single-origin coffee designed specifically with espresso extraction in mind. This version is a blend built around two coffees, a sweet and smooth Brazil and a slightly fruity coffee from Colombia.

Those familiar with our menu may know the Brazil coffee as the micro-lot, Bela Vista, which was recently awarded an outstanding 93 points in Coffee Review! Bela Vista is a tiny farm located near the town of Dom Vicoso in Brazil’s Minas Gerais growing region. Owned and operated by Ana Vilela and her four children, the family has won several awards, including second place in the 2011 Late Harvest Cup of Excellence competition.

As many blends do, this two- bean blend started out as a concept but, interestingly, the blend went through several permutations before landing almost exactly where it started. The idea was to blend the Bela Vista with a coffee from the Tolima region in Colombia to bring fruit and a touch of brightness to the cup. After many test batches we realized we had the components and percentages right, we just needed to adjust the roast profile and roast degree to yield the balance we were looking for.   We will roast the Eye of the Tiger only as long as the blend components last. 

Cupping Notes:

Rich flavors of caramel, vanilla, honey roasted nuts with notes of orange marmalade and cherry.

  • Region: A blend of coffees from Brazil and Colombia
  • Milling: Pulped Natural and Washed
