Detailed description: Our goal with Crosstown Espresso is sheer bliss. Crosstown has a sweet, velvety chocolate base that reminds us of Willy Wonka opening up the taps. The blend, consisting of two or three different coffees, has a high-toned component designed to give the shot a complex, bright finish. Crosstown is named after our goal for our espresso roast: to make our customers drive across our home town to get our espresso and milk drinks.
Brewing recommendations: Rest 3-5 days after roast. We brew our espresso with a 18 gram dose in a VST basket. Final yield is 38-43 grams of liquid espresso coffee. The total shot time varies from 20-30 seconds.
Pair With: As straight espresso, try it with a bit of dark chocolate, candied nuts or chocolate cake. For milk drinks, you can't go wrong with a plain or chocolate croissant or a biscotti.
