Our Espresso Crema blend: for billowing crema.

Espresso crema is popular with coffee shops and our home espresso users. It does exactly what it says on the tin: Produce Espresso Crema.

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.


What is 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 on a cup of coffee then you need to:

  • Choose a slightly darker roasted coffee.
  • Grind 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 water.

You can't help but produce a good 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.

    I am very happy with the coffee beans after grinding and using my coffee machine I have a nice strong cup of coffee at a very reasonable price I will be buying again when I need some more.

    Having tried many blends of coffee for a base shot for the hot espresso, smooth cappuccino or long americano, I haven't found anything better.

    We have tried many blends but keep coming back to this one! We now order for several people on our street as well. A smooth deep taste and a perfect crema.

    Given Espresso Crema five stars, not only because I always enjoy it, but also because it is consistently good. Always provides such a great cup of coffee.

    Consistently good espresso crema

    Published by Unknown on 9th Nov 2016

    We use this coffee in our bean to cup coffee machine, at home. It makes excellent espresso. American, or cappuccino style coffees with a good crema. We order on a regular basis and the roast and flavour is consistent, always a delicious cup of coffee. Having tried many other brands of beans over the years, this is the best for us, we are so glad we found Pumphrey's a few years ago and this coffee.
