Epic EspressoRegular price $20.00
High intensity and full of sweetness. Notes of dried apricot, mandarin and anise.
The "Epic Espresso" is a fan favorite amongst Black Fox regulars. We always stock a little extra of this one because it flies out the door.
Epic isn't always the same coffee but it's usually African and often from Ethiopia. 49th Parallel call this one a light espresso roast because it preserves the acidity of the coffee and doesn't show heavy many signs of "roastiness".
This lot comes from the Worka Sakaro washing station and, just so you know, the filter roast of this coffee was one of our favorite coffees of 2020 so it's going to be a very good time. The Mijane family own and operate this washing station and it brings in coffee cherry from small-lot farmers surrounding the town of Gedeb.
In the cup it'll be rich and sweet. You'll find the sweetness of dried apricots with some vibrant mandarin and hints of anise.
