Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Sweet-toned, round, deep. Dark chocolate, roasted almond, ripe fig, lily, oak. Full, syrupy mouthfeel. Chocolate and fig in particular carry into a resonant, balanced finish. Fills out three parts milk with authority: more rounded fig, chocolate and lily.
Notes: This exceptional coffee was selected as the No. 15 coffee on Coffee Review’s list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2015. Certified organic. Cafe Virtuoso is a small-batch coffee roaster that strives to procure, roast and deliver the best quality coffee in San Diego. Visit www.cafevirtuoso.com or call 619-550-1830 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: Virtuoso calls this a “traditional European style” espresso, and so it is. Lovers of the new style of brighter, high-toned, lighter-bodied espressos may not like it. Traditionalists will.
