Espresso Ticino by Flying Goat Coffee Review |
  • Flying Goat Coffee

    Healdsburg, California
  • Espresso Ticino

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: June 2004
Origin: Not disclosed Price: $11.95/16oz

Blind Assessment: The aroma is elegantly simple: toasty and sweet with low-key fruit notes suggesting ripe apricot. Superb in the small cup: velvety mouthfeel, substantial body, deep-toned but crisply dry chocolate and apricot notes, with a long, clean, sweet finish. Solid, chocolaty presence in milk, but the glory here is in the classic but powerful straight shot.

Notes: This lighter roasted of two Flying Goat espresso blends is designed specifically for enjoyment as straight espresso. Flying Goat Coffee is a boutique retail/wholesale roaster located in the wine country of northern California. Visit or call 800-675-3599 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Those with a taste for beverages classically balanced in style but robust in presence.


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.
