This is the Cleavon Little Espresso brought to you by Topeca Coffee Roasters. This is an espresso blend of coffees from Brazil, El Salvador, Ethiopia and Sumatra, named after the renowned stage and screen actor Cleavon Little. In the cup, this espresso is chocolatey, sweet, and just a little fruity.
For some reason, we did not like this espresso near as much as the Onyx Ozark Copper you first sent us. It tasted bitter and required a flavoring added to the latte. When we make lattes, we'd like to do a flat white. I'm only rating it two stars because you are trying to help us find the right coffee for us! Thank you for your help!
This is a delicious espresso, with aromas of buttery pastries, chocolate, and fruity berries. The first few times I ran it through the espresso machine I picked up on buttery blueberry muffins, which was very strong and welcome. I have not been able to get that flavor since, but overall a really unique bean, highly recommend.
VERY smooth. Simple in taste profile, but super enjoyable. The caffeine content was just right for me, too... not super intense.
I think the description is spot on - chocolatey and a little fruity. Body is medium and so far pulls have been consistent
I got a few good shots out of this one. Mostly picked up chocolate and nuts, but there was a hint of blackberry. This one was a bit hard because there were random shots that would choke my machine, or need a finer grind. I had to keep adjusting the grind/ tamp which doesn't usually happen. It was also easy for me to make these on the bitter side- that's a personal issue, have to work on fine tuning that for this coffee. Not bad overall.
Very mild, almost disappears in a single shot latte
Not a fan of blends, as I thought I specified in my preferences. I also usually favor lighter coffees.
This makes a killer pour over. Chocolatey and really smooth. One of my favorite deliveries ever!
I like this coffee! The flavor profile is really enjoyable because it's so well-rounded. I'm always looking forward to the next sip from my mug. :)
Wasn't impressed with this espresso blend.
Tasted great, flavor was mild but to be expected. Delicous
LOVE this one :)
Pretty good espresso. Also good as a drip. The berry is very prevelent.
I like this one, dark chocolate notes and gingerbread cookies were the stand out flavors i picked up. I will purchase this one again! *pulled from a La Pavoni Romantica
Maybe I just caught the beans on a good day, but this is a complex blend and it packs a punch. Four different coffees from four different regions (using four different processes!) are combined, and somehow the folks at Topeca made a coherent coffee out of it. It's tough to pick out all the nuances, but I was impressed enough by the first shot out of the Breville to give this one five stars. Strongly recommended.
Love this one. It is like a fine wine it is so good.
