Posted Thu Dec 30, 2010, 12:22pm Subject: Stereo Blend – Heart Roasters, Portland OR
I was back in Portland for X-mas time and stopped by Heart a few times. I've admired their coffee in the past but I always hoped they'd have an espresso blend. Now they do, and it's terrific! It's fairly new — I think they started brewing it in early December (the barista said it was around about 2 weeks). My first order was an espresso and cappuccino and both were delicious and memorable "top ten" coffees for me. I took a bag of "stereo" back to CA with me and pulled it on my lever machine this morning and it was also among the better shots I've pulled at home as well. I'm not great at describing coffee flavors, but it was very well balanced and transparently roasted! I also bought their Kenya and El Salvador. Very light roasts—unique and delicious! Has anyone else had the stereo? I HIGHLY recommend it!
