Hey Y'all,

What are YOUR current favorite espresso blendz?
Lately I've been trying a few pro-roasted coffees and now I have my favorites....
Every one below makes amazing coffee for me, and all of the people are amazing as well
It's a pleasure and a privaledge for me to know people from each of these roasters.

OK, here they are (in no particular order), some of my personal choices.

"Meritage" from Cuvee Coffee

"Redline" from Metropolis

"Ambrosia" from Caffe Fresco
(and Luna Nuova from them as well - it's a decaf that makes amazing milk drinks)

"Code Brown" from Coffee Emergency

"Classic Espresso" from Rocket Coffee Roasters

"Espresso Torro" from West Coast Coffee Roasters

"Black Cat" from Intelligentsia  

"Big Truck" from Olympia Coffee Roasting Co.

EDIT: There are many others out there who give great service and great products, these are just some of my favorites lately

I like redline myself, I also think their website has to be the best looking website out of all the coffee websites I have been too

It has been awhile since I ordered roasted coffee, I have been doing a lot of home roasting especially with all the warm weather we have been getting this winter in New York

I have also been doing a lot of single origin shots

El Salvador "Miel"- now this has to be the most underrated single origin espresso of all time it is completely outstanding and works very well with just about every brewing method I threw at it.

Jon you really have to try this I truely believe you will fall in love with this bean, Every one I know who tries this falls in love with this one including Tom at Sweet Marias

Jon,

All mentioned do good work; however, one might try http://www.eccocaffe.com/ and http://www.rileys-coffee.com/ where I do like their Decatur Street Blend.  You may prefer their other espresso offerings, but I think Barry does a good job with DSB.  Ecco's offering, to me, is a wonderful light roast.

And, there is Flying Goat, Paradise, and a host of others--all who do a heck of a lot better job than I could ever hope to do.

Best,

Larry

I've been enjoying Raging Bull from OurCoffeeBarn.com

I've also tried their Latte Style Espresso blend and it's pretty good (good for a latte - imagine that).

In no particular order:

Barefoot Coffee Roasters: Element 114 - nice top to bottom range.

Caffe Fresco:   Ambrosia - hits the middle range dead on.
                     Papua New Guinea - a surprise in the Pavoni lever (not a blend - SO).
                     Brown Brindle Papua New Guinea - a blend of roasts, not beans. Mostly for my super-auto.

Peet's:           Italian roast - enjoyable heartiness.

Two, Ambrosia from Caffee Fresco and Redline from Metropolis. Ironic that both places are owned by a Tony, they are equally great guys. Just ordered more Ambrosia.
