This blend is inspired by northern Italian espresso cuisine and offered as homage to the homeland of espresso. A moderately dark roast is applied to organically grown beans of mild acidity and full body to bring out hints of sweetness and the fruit notes of the highlight coffee. Adequate body will ensure a healthy cap of crema to seal in the aromas trapped in your shot of espresso. As with our original Espresso Blend, Blend X makes a great cup of coffee via your favorite brewing method.

This is some of the best coffee I have ever purchased. I got 3 pounds and will be buying more when that is gone.

So, I haven't gone cragging with this in a pack yet, but step one in waking up every morning is to sleepily mash the grind button on my coffee grinder and dump the results into a moka pot. Add one ice cube, consume.
Nice, complex blend. Almost a little spicy, not too bitter, and a fine way to start my morning.
I should add, too, that defiant rocks. Super fast shipping, excellent customer service, and if i was in colorado i'd come bother you guys at work.

The most versatile and easy to use espresso blend we use. It has great body and complexity for a two bean espresso. Very forgiving for those new to making espresso.

I must say, this blend is better than ever! I make espresso with it, it's delicious, rich, chocolatey, not bitter, very smooth. Nice job!

Makes a great cup of Espresso with no bite and a yummy coffee aftertaste. Makes you want to keep to keep drinking cup after cup.
