Hillcrest Espresso is roasted to a light-medium, which really allows for the flavour of the beans themselves to excel, rather than the taste of the roast. It has a balanced fruity acidity, smooth body and tastes of honey, sweet cocoa, toasted almonds and dark cherry.
Many believe 'Espresso' needs to be a blend of specific coffees, or a specific roast, but what it is really is a method of preparing coffee. So, if you tend to prefer lighter roasts, consider this tasty blend, even if you are not brewing it as espresso. with wine like tones.
