Josuma's Proprietary Espresso Blend Malabar Gold®
Malabar Gold® is pre-blended while green for a European-style espresso. This premium espresso blend produces a sweet, full-bodied shot with little bitterness.
Here is Joseph John himself, the designer of this blend, explaining about the emulsification of oils that make an espresso an espresso, vs just a brewed coffee:
Green coffee for home roasters - an original Direct Trade coffee. Malabar Gold® is pre-blended while green for a European-style espresso. In the mix are Indian Monsooned Malabar beans known for their smooth and mellow taste plus a low level of acidity. There is a second aged bean in this blend as well plus a touch of Robusta for beautiful crema. This premium espresso blend produces a sweet, full-bodied shot with little bitterness. This coffee needs a good 4-5 days rest to come into its own. If you detect some off flavors, give it another day or two and try it again, you may be surprised at the transformation.
In an effort to help Dr. John protect his valuable work in creating this proprietary espresso blend please note that by purchasing this product you agree that you have no commercial interest in trying to recreate the blend.
We are typically able to get this coffee all year long.
While it is rare for us to run out it does sometimes happen. Unfortunately we are currently out and it is our hope to be restocked sometime in July.
