Demitasse - Milky Way Espresso - 12 oz.

product

STORYarticle-shape

Our mainstay espresso blend that hits that Goldilocks zone of coffee - not too bitter, not too sour, but just right. Smooth, syrupy and sweet.

The 2022 version is a 3 bean blend:

75% Guatemala Asodiett Txol X'ag Don't ask us to pronounce that But this coffee, from Huehuetenango, is the killer base for our blend. A mix of different varietals from the Asodiett Coop, a group of about 30 producers who banded together to improve their coffee quality. The washed coffee gives us all those hazelnut and chocolate vibes we love as an espresso base.

15% Honduras Copan

This blend of coffees, from the Coop Cafescor (130 member coop), is Fair Trade, Organic, UTZ and Rainforest Alliance certified. They're doing great things for both the coffee and the community where they grow coffees. This coffee brings us the sweetness we crave in an espresso - we get notes of milk chocolate, brown sugar, almond paste and a splash of key lime pie for good measure.

10% Burundi Nemba:

This delicious African coffee comes to us from the Nemba washing station. Nemba uses a monitoring system to ensure traceability all along the production and processing chain. All 3,000+ producers are smallholders who own an average of 150 coffee trees. The farms delivering cherry to Nemba are all located around 1,700+ meters above sea level, near the Kibila forest. This final coffee bring in that beautiful African acidity and fruitiness to the blend.

MORE COFFEES FROM THIS ROASTER

Demitasse got started in the summer of 2011 in Los Angeles, California by Boback (Bobby) Roshan, who was a lawyer when he got into drinking specialty coffee. According to Roshan, “I was drinking mountains of specialty coffee at that time and really started falling into the rabbit hole that is specialty coffee. After a few months of fermenting in my mind, I decided to just go for it.”

Demitasse’s vision is to bring creativity and fun into the coffee drinking experience while being an active member in the community they serve.

Their cafes are known for the crazy drinks they make from scratch, the seasonally rotating shop drinks, the quirky and fun ways their brew coffee, and their commitment to eliminating waste. Their roastery is best known for being one of the first in Los Angeles to roast specialty coffee and being able to develop close relationships with the farms they work with in El Salvador, Guatemala and Costa Rica. Africa is next!

Demitasse understands that sourcing coffee is more than just finding the tastiest coffees in a particular country and buying it. It’s about having the most impact on the coffee producers and adhering to specific guidelines around building and nurturing relationships with producers and forward thinking farmers who take care of their people and the land. “We find that the more we’ve stuck to these guidelines, the better and better our coffees have gotten each year. We value transparency and want you to know that we really do give a $%^& about from whom and where the coffee comes.”

Demitasse believes coffee should be fun and approachable. They vary their roasts so that there is something for everyone and they don't subscribe to a particular dogma when it comes to coffee. “We're approachable and always available to chat, collaborate and to answer questions. Honestly, we take what we do very seriously, but we don't take ourselves very seriously. Our brand reflects that.”
