The Backstory
This blend has been a long time coming. Our very first espresso blend was our Classic Italian Espresso. That blend suited my tastes and experience with espresso at the time – this goes back to about 2001 – and it’s still one of my favorite coffees.

As time moved on, and we were building the business, traditional (i.e., containing robusta) espressos diminished in popularity among specialty customers, and I started to experiment with many different styles of what many call “Third Wave” coffees. You may be interested to read my take on these roast styles – I wrote a short essay that’s over on our blog, link to it HERE. I did and still do like many of these blends, but I always find myself retreating to my comfort zone, which is a more “traditional” cup.

In recent years, there seems to be (based on our experience, anyway) a resurgence in interest in more traditional espressos. Numerous customers have contacted me and requested that I blend something that is a little darker and more pungent than our Classic Italian. And thanks to this resurgence of interest seemingly industry-wide (read my blog on that topic HERE), this year I have an unprecedented number of fine robustas in inventory (and yes, there is such a thing as fine robusta), and I’ve been experimenting with their use.

The result of that experimentation is this coffee. I was shooting for an “East Meets West” European style, as one might find in Poland,or the Czech Republic, or Eastern Russia. We hope you enjoy it.
