Brewing French Canyon Espresso Blend

Brewing French Canyon Espresso Blend

At SRCC, we serve a number of coffee options including both blends and single-origins. We’re proud of every single coffee we roast and believe that each one has the potential to thrive in any brewing method. We designate the French Canyon (FC) blend as our “espresso” blend, even though any of our coffees can be used to brew espresso. (A common misconception is that certain types of coffees are “espresso beans.” Espresso is the brewing method of using about nine bars of pressure to push a small amount of water quickly through a bed of coffee to make a small, compact, highly flavorful coffee beverage ideally mixed with steam milk. Any type of coffee can be used in this brewing method.) In most contexts, espresso needs to have a low level of acidity, strong chocolate and nutty notes, and a full body. Our French Canyon blend meets these needs with excellence and consistency.

Brewing The Rock House Blend

Brewing The Rock House Blend

When looking for a staple coffee to serve as a consistent drip, it’s important to look for something balanced, sweet, and chocolatey. Ideally, drip coffee should be balanced enough for black coffee lovers to enjoy and for others to be able to add milk and sugar and still enjoy. The Rock meets these needs with a consistent, balanced cup full of chocolatey sweetness and enough brightness to round out the experience.
