This is the Terra Incognita Espresso Blend brought to you by Portola Coffee Roasters. Portola sources fresh coffee throughout the year, which means as their seasonal coffee line-up changes, so must their espresso blend. This iteration is a blend of a natural coffee from Ethiopia and a washed coffee from Colombia grown between 1,700 and 2,100 meters. This cup is complex with floral aromatics, red fruit and dried stone fruit in the high notes and chocolate and caramel lingering in the finish.
Chocolate and bitter due to a darker roast but not too bitter. Enjoyed it.
Excellent all around coffee, and makes a great espresso.
Favorite so far! I could drink this every day. Love the smoothness.
Bright taste. Very acidic.
Very nice espresso blend, the coffee is balanced with subtle fruit/flower hints. it is a darker roast without tasting burnt, acidic, or like the essential oils were roasted off.
This is so good. Smooth. Sweet. Aromatic.
Beautiful smell and excellent balance
A very nice coffee. Notes of chocolate and earth. Well-balanced and drinkable.
Just not to my liking. It's that medium roast thing.
I received this espresso once before, and recall it being a bit too dark of a roast for my preference. This time it seems to be more of a medium roast, and the espresso is exceptionally sweet all on its own. Notes of fruit were detectable upon initial taste, and had a nice chocolate finish. - pulled on La Marzocco LM
Lovely, balanced blend with floral hints—possibly even fruity. Very aromatic, I enjoyed it.
This one is really enjoyable.
This was a really nice espresso. A bit shifty at times, but when it was pulling in the zone it gave me everything I could ask for. Grind took me a bit to dial in. I liked this one better about 12 days off.
Lighter roast tha usual for espresso makes the cup much more flavorful, and less dark than most. Fruit tones come through clean leaning towards stone fruits, cherry. Excellent espresso.
Huge improvement over the last batch. A nice medium roast that pours beautifully. The Ethiopian notes come through loud and clear; floral with a bit of blueberry, nicely balanced acidity.
Liked this one too... Smelled and tasted just delicious!
