Espresso Roast Coffee

(8 customer reviews)


A great shot of espresso needs great crema. This 100% arabica espresso blend delivers.


Product Description

Spicy, Mellow, Caramel Hints

Classic espresso roast coffee with spicy overtones and aroma. You’ll also note hints of caramel. And the acidity is mellow, while the body is nice and full. Kosher.

The Backstory

“I was sitting on the porch of a hacienda in Costa Rica with two other coffee guys from different parts of the U.S. discussing our espresso blends. One of them said “I use about 10% Robusta in my blend to boost the crema.” I thought no way I’m using that shit in my coffee. We still use a Colombian or equivalent as a base, a high-grown Central for spice, and an African for body. There’s plenty of crema. It makes great espresso and is delicious brewed in a French Press or a filter drip.”

    Rich, velvety, bold but not bitter with a crema that it is just barely sweet. We tried many beans in our Baratza Forte before deciding happily on Kobos. The coffee flavor under a latte comes through like the shining star we were hoping for.

    Having a delicious cup of Kobos Espresso Roast Coffee is the only way I want to begin my day. Been buying it for years and will continue to do so. Thank you Kobos for an excellent coffee.

    We have tried many other Espresso roasters over the years but this Kobos variety is hands down our favorite.
    The convenience of online ordering and free priority shipping to our rural Clark County home is greatly much appreciated.
    I feared diminished quality when David Kobos sold the company,however,the quality/taste has remained consistently excellent.

    The best coffee, bar none. My wife got me a Breville Barista Express for Fathers Day and this coffee produces a perfect pull every time. I love it! Keep up the great work, Kobos!

    We simply cannot enjoy any other coffee but KOBOS. We have purchased their coffee for years and as store have closed and being bought by another company we are so so happy we can order on line. Nothing but the best I always say! This goes for the french and decaf coffees and actually any other roast!

    Very nice. Good crema.

    We generally use Fiera Organica as our espresso roast but decided on a whim to try this Espresso Roast variety and was pleasantly surprised how much we enjoy it. It’s a nice change from our routine and may continue to use it occasionally. Nice dark flavor with seemingly chocolate overtones. Nice.

    I make 2 Americanos every weekday morning using this blend.
    It’s great hot or iced and stands up to my homemade chocolate chip cocoa when I want a mocha. I also appreciate the price of your beans by the pound, not 12 oz bag and the free shipping is always welcomed!
