Our Ballast Espresso is a darker take on the Peruvian Cafe Femenino beans we offer. This roast brings out more of the caramelized sugars and edges the acidity down a bit, making it a rich and balanced espresso. With a hefty body carried by dark cocoa, full and smooth mouthfeel, and a lasting finish, this roast is profiled for use as espresso- but makes for a deeper, stronger-tasting cup of drip brew as well!
