Blind Assessment: "Great crema - best espresso I've ever had," writes Mandy Elion of Pasadena, California, who rates Supreme Bean espressos 90 - 94. This all-organic espresso blend is balanced, richly and roundly roasty in the demitasse, with undertones of fruity chocolate. A tingle of astringency in the finish is invigorating rather than rough. In small milk comes across heavy with fruity chocolate tones; in large milk sweetly and roundly fruity.

Notes: The Supreme Bean is a Los Angeles-area wholesale roaster specializing in high-end roasted-to-order espresso blends. Visit or call 888-288-JAVA for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy some tonal complexity in their straight shots and cappuccinos.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
