This signature house blend of Latin American coffees provides Bold Bean’s espresso in their cafes. A versatile staple, it’s ideal for milk-based drinks or French press, with just the right balance of comforting and complex notes. We found a caramelized pecan fragrance and tasted sugar cane, roasted nuts, red berries, and milk chocolate, with a punchy body and a juicy acidity.

Every coffee we share has been tasted and recommended by our expert Tasting Panel who have years of experience in specialty coffee. We cast a wide net, trying hundreds of coffees, keeping an open mind to new regions, processes, and roasters, and going through many rounds of cupping. If there was an easier way of choosing each coffee, we wouldn’t want to do it. For exclusive weekly coffee suggestions from our panel, join Fellow Drops!

Using Stagg [X] Dripper
Coffee: 25 g
Water: 360 g
Bloom: 50 g for 30 seconds
Pulse Pours: After the bloom, pour two slow steady pours of 140 g each, then gently swirl the brewer and let the coffee drawdown. All water should be poured by 2:15.
Total Brew Time: 2:30-3:00
Special Tip: Add 30 g of hot water to your finished brew. This dilutes it to an ideal concentration and prevents over-extraction that can occur during later stages of the brew process.
