Posted Thu Mar 29, 2007, 11:38am Subject: Re: Best Peet's for Espresso?
Unlike the previous poster, I tried Espresso Forte and didn't care for it at all. The counter person even tried to dissuade me from buying it. It just may be a matter of taste. I haven't tried any of their other blends.
I like Major Dickason's Blend best. It's a somewhat lighter roast than the other two blends Peets recommends for espresso. It is more of the Northern Italian style I prefer. While the flavor is lovely, it does not have as much body or produce as much crema as many of the other espresso blends you see endorsed by CGers.
BTW, Peets decaf Sumatra makes a very nice decaf espresso, as does their decaf Moka-Java.
