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.


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.
