Our Espresso Crema blend: for billowing crema with a velvety body!
Espresso crema is popular with coffee shops and our home espresso users. It does exactly what it says on the tin: Produce Espresso Crema.
Ever Since Achille Gaggia invented the espresso machine crema has been an integral part of the experience of espresso. Extracting the coffee bean oils from this blend will help you produce that 'Guinness effect' we all want from good espresso.
Freshly roasted coffee will produce a thick layer of crema on top of a shot of espresso. Older coffee will produce less crema.
If you want 'the holy grail' of billowing crema, a crema espresso gourmet, then you need to try the following:
· Choose a slightly darker roasted coffee.
· Grind the beans to make ground coffee just before you brew
· Make sure the coffee is freshly roasted.
· Dial-in your grinder.
· Instruct your espresso machine to dose the correct volume of hot water.
You can't help but produce a perfect espresso shot when you follow these rules.
Unlike most roasters, our open flame roasting process hardens the casing of our dark roast coffee beans. This means that we can roast our coffee slightly darker than other roasters without getting burnt flavours. Doing this helps to release carbon dioxide and develops the caramel flavours that this blend is so well known for.
We roast this blend until the natural oils start to emerge from the coffee bean. This gives the blend a traditional dark roast 'Italian Espresso' flavour and an excellent crema head.
This is a blend of coffees from around the world which all work together to create the consistency required by coffee shop owners who want to be able to guarantee a flavour and taste to their customers. It’s currently a blend of coffees from Ethiopia, Brazil and Vietnam but will change slightly in its make up throughout the year to create that consistently good crema.

Lower temperatures, if you can, will soften the bitter elements. We’ve had great success down even as low as 86 degrees Celsius in our showroom.
This is a wonderful rich, smooth & deep tasting coffee, Chocolate and toffee at the front, a long smooth finish and no bitterness Wonderfull
Wow this is a beautiful roast....wonderful aroma and a splendid crema. Took me right back to standing at the bar at St Eustachio in Rome.
