THE STORY

Sterling opened on Valentine's Day in 2010. Feels like ages ago. To mark the occasion each year, we release a limited-edition blend. Everyone likes chocolate-covered strawberries, so we figured that would be a good move for the blend!! The base gives it tons of chocolate depth and sweetness, and a 30% component natural gives it a nice berry finish. Go ahead; be our valentine.

Lightly roasted for drip and press.

BREWING RECOMMENDATIONS

We serve this coffee as espresso in our shops.  We use 20g ground coffee to produce 30g brewed espresso in 26-30 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.  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 15 grams of coffee for every 8 ounces of water.  Please contact us with any brewing related questions!
