What Is An Espresso Roast?
Espresso is a beloved coffee style due to its intense aroma, powerful flavor, and burst of energy. Espresso is a concentrated extract of coffee, usually between six and ten times more concentrated than a regular filter brew. Some people prefer an espresso shot for a fast jolt of flavor and caffeine, while others use espresso as a flavoring for blended milk drinks like lattes and macchiatos. Espresso roast is so dark that some people find it too intense without milk or other flavors.
An espresso roast specifically is the roast of green coffee for the purpose of creating “coffee extract.” Espresso can be challenging to make because you’re brewing fast and furious (about 20-40 seconds), which can leave the brew too acidic if not executed properly. You’re brewing at the highest possible temperature, so you don’t want to leave it going for too long or it will burn. The roasted beans are usually black with very heavy oils to help offset this sort of brewing process.
An espresso roast is the right choice for your morning brew if you like your coffee strong with the Cuban add-ins of caramelized sugars and creamy milk.
