Mocha Java * – A blend of Heavy-bodied Java and Sumatra beans from Indonesia, mixed with a good bit of bright and spicy Ethiopians. The end result is a consistently good cup, that continues the unique, rich, and full-bodied taste traditions found in its components.
House Blend * – Our master roasters use their skill to blend just the right complementary varieties of Latin American and African beans into one coffee that showcases the best of all the types used. This blend has all the body, aroma, and rich taste necessary for a great cup every time.
House Blend w/ Dark Roast * – Complementing varieties of the best coffees are blended with a delightful, sensual, darker roast. The same rich mellowness of the regular House Blend, but with a touch of the stronger, dark flavor of French Roast.
House Blend Full City Roast * – This complex blend of Latin American and African coffees is mixed especially for roasting at the Full City roast temperature. Lighter than an espresso roast, but darker than our regular House, the result is a rich taste that joins the flavor of the blend with a hint of dark roast tones.
Turkish Style Blend – A taste created by combining Colombian and Brazilian coffees with a portion of darker French roast for balance that is similar to an authentic Turkish brew. The term “Turkish” refers to a Middle Eastern brewing method.
DARK ROASTS – Beans roasted at a higher temperature are known as “dark” or “espresso” roast coffees. The darker the beans, the more intense and bittersweet the flavor.
Viennese – Roasted to a higher degree than the standard medium, but not so dark as French or Italian, this blend of beans has a truly rich flavor without the really strong taste found in the darker roasts.
French * – This is the most popular of our dark roasts, and the one we recommend for espresso brewing. Though delicious as a regular cup of brewed coffee, the longer roast time makes choice strong, with an intense flavor statement. An exotically enjoyable, smooth, and aromatic cup.
Porto-fino – This is a special blend of light-bodied Latin American coffees. The blend is then dark roasted to a degree a bit darker than the French Roast. It is light enough to produce a good regular brew, but is strong enough to use quite successfully as an espresso.
Italian * – Our Italian is a blend of coffees roasted to the darkest level. Almost black, and very oily, these beans are full-bodied with the tangy, bittersweet flavor dark roasted coffees are known for.
Groundhog – Just as the groundhog – the official mascot of Coffee Express – is an important part of the natural food chain (and a symbol of the end of winter), this special blend could become an important link in your coffee experience. With a smooth and mellow taste, and the extra bite of a dark roast, it’s the perfect coffee for welcoming spring, or anytime.
Chicory – Not a coffee at all but a ground root that is often added to coffee. Popular in “New Orleans” style coffee blends.
