To pay homage to all the good stories that have shaped us, molded us, formed us along our life journeys, and for all the stories old and new that will guide our way in the future, we have named our espresso blend Storybook.
Storybook offers you consistently beautiful reddish-brown crema complete with all of the sweetness, richness, and complexity you are looking for in espresso. On its own or as the hero in milk drinks, it is truly a storybook ending in your cup.
We have decided to label this blend “espresso+” rather than simply espresso. This is done to draw attention to the blend’s versatility. It is crafted for espresso, but makes great brewed coffee as well.
