I have been working on updating our “Roma” espresso for the last 6 months. Roma was the first espresso that I blended in a very light style, focusing on nutty and creamy notes and a shorter finish.
I have been looking for a deeper coffee note and better persistence for “Roma” while retaining the lighter/creamy notes and shorter soft finish. “Roma” was always meant as a contrast to our Flagship “Illuminator” espresso, but for me the gap was too wide between the two.
I have just pulled a shot of the re formulated “Roma” and it is right where I had hoped. It may need another day to firm up and deepen a bit, so come in Friday or Saturday to see if its ready.
Mention that you read it on the blog and I’ll pull a shot on the house…
