The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf built its business on this signature blend, one of our most popular products. Our signature Espresso Roast Blend is made with distinct roasts from 5 different countries. Costa Rica is the foundation and sweetness. Sumatra adds body and a hint of earth. Papua New Guinea contributes more depth. Guatemala adds spice and balance. Brazil adds dried fruit and nut overtones. Each comes together to create the perfect blend of silky smooth flavors in your coffee or Latte. Our Espresso Roast Blend is expressive and subtle enough to be enjoyed as a straight shot, yet assertive enough for the perfect latte at home.

Profile: Velvety body with caramel like aroma, earthy flavor and a bittersweet finish. This blend captures a full range of origin characteristics from crisp and bright to syrupy, earthy and full bodied. The range of roast degrees lends more complexity and versatility.
Place: Costa Rica, Guatemala, Papua New Guinea, Sumatra, Brazil
People: Our experienced roasters prepare this blend to work well as a drip coffee and provide a balanced profile that lends well to lattes, cappuccinos, or as a straight shot.
Process: Each origin coffee is carefully roasted individually to its optimum level and then combined in the right proportion to create the final blend. There are a total of five coffees, one roasted at two levels, resulting in five individual blend components.

This coffee is a blend of five different coffees: Sumatra, Papua New Guinea, Brazil, Guatemala, and Costa Rica (Smart People Buy Great Coffee). The Brazil uses the Natural process; the coffee cherries are sorted by hand. The ripe cherries are sent to one pile while the rest are sorted according to ripeness. The fully intact cherries are then laid on large concrete patios or raised beds and left to ferment and dry for two to four weeks. The dried cherries turn dark purple in color and less round. They are then sent to special hulling machines that rip the dried fruit from the coffee beans. The Sumatra uses the Semi-Washed process; the coffee cherries are sorted by hand. The fully intact cherries are put in water to sort out any defect. They then go through a de-pulper that will remove the outer skin and pulp as well as some or most of the mucilage from the green coffee itself. The cherries are then laid on large concrete patios or raised beds and left to ferment and dry for two to four weeks. The dried cherries turn dark purple in color and become less round. They are then sent to special hulling machines that rip the dried fruit from the coffee beans. The Papua New Guinea, Costa Rica and Colombia use the Washed process; the coffee cherries are sorted by hand. The fully intact cherries are put in water to sort out any defect.

They then go through a de-pulper that will remove the outer skin and pulp. A layer of mucilage is left around the seeds. To remove the mucilage the seed will need to ferment in water tanks for eight to fifty hours. The beans that have floated to the top they will begin the drying process where the cherries are then laid on large concrete patios or raised beds and left to ferment and dry for two to four weeks. The dried cherries turn dark purple in color and less round. They are then sent to special hulling machines that rip the dried fruit from the coffee beans. Once the green coffee beans are packaged and shipped to our roasting facility at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, they are then blended together to create our Espresso Roast.

Pairing: Rum cake, caramel ice cream, chocolate muffin, or coffee cake.
