Every year we welcome back the El Borbollon, and every year it impresses us with its balance and sweetness. You'll notice the sweetness right away; the ground coffee smells like butterscotch. That sweetness is in the cup too. We're probably not allowed to say the El Borbollon tastes like a "Werther's Hard Caramel" but just imagine enjoying a generic hard caramel without any implication of corporate sponsorship and bam that's El Borbollon.

Light roasted for drip and press.

We serve this coffee as both espresso and drip in our shops.  We use 20g ground espresso to produce 40g brewed espresso in 30 seconds.  If you don't have a scale and the espresso is between 7 and 14 days old, just aim for a volume a little over 2 ounces for a double.  Please note this coffee is delicious as straight espresso but can get lost in milk; if you prefer a stronger espresso for milk drinks we recommend using the Blendo Stupendo.Of course, feel free to experiment with the parameters to find your perfect coffee.  If our parameters make the espresso taste sour or bitter to you, just increase your brewed amount a few grams up if it's sour or a few grams down if it's bitter.  For our drip coffee, the parameters vary a little because we use a refractometer to control strength at 1.35% TDS, but if you don't have a refractometer just use about 12 grams of coffee for every 8 ounces of water.  Please contact us with any brewing related questions!
