Redd Tasting Notes
Redd:Winter's produces full-bodied cups with warm earthy, spice and nutty notes. It is exceptionally well balanced and flavorful, which makes it great for use as both espresso and drip coffee.
Our Choice for In-House Espresso
The name Redd is a tribute to the salmon of the Russian River that connects both of Black Oak’s cafes as well as Mendocino and Sonoma county. This blend is used for espresso in both of our cafes. The composition of the blend is updated seasonally. This allows us to seamlessly transition between the most freshly harvested green coffee, while capturing the essence of the seasons.
Redd is carefully crafted to have the exceptional balance necessary to produce extraordinary cups of light espresso while maintaining a nuanced flavor that helps enhance the joys that are unique to the changing seasons.
We recommend starting with a 1:16 brew ratio. Using less water will add to the body of the cup and concentrate the heavier chocolate notes. 205°F water works well for Redd:Winter
Roast Level: Medium/Light
