Beansmith Coffee – Tigerlily Espresso

Beansmith Coffee – Tigerlily Espresso

Our premium espresso blend is named for its amazing striping in its buttery crema. This Northern Italian style espresso is carefully roasted to a “full city” roast, yielding a flavorful shot that’s not over-roasted or burnt tasting. Home baristas and coffee shop pros have been raving about this espresso, and we consider it to be our definitive blend.

This season’s Tigerlily presents a silky body with soft fruit notes and a hint of earthiness.


Espresso blending is a relatively young art, and has gone through many trends over the course of the past 100 years.  Crema-obsessed traditional  Italian blends (that include robusta) have given way to  “bold” American French roast blends, and more recently, to a new world of lighter roasted blends and even single origin espressos that boast exciting notes of tangy goodness.

Whether it is to be used as the base of a frothy latte, or to be sipped as a stand-alone treat, Beansmith is always chasing the perfect shot.  We pull our inspiration from the art of blending that has come before us, but challenge ourselves to discover whatever is around the next corner, playing off the intense flavors of today’s specialty coffees.

We offer espressos that range from familiar to challenging, letting taste be our guide.

Devocion CoffeeColombia Citrus Blend

Devoción is the finest and freshest coffee, pure and simple. Our coffee beans are sourced from farms we hand-select from within the vast untamed regions of our nation. Deep in Colombia’s most inaccessible zones, we develop long-term relationships with coffee growers, paying fair-trade prices and above, while establishing social and environmental programs to help secure their future. We bring progress and pride to growers in regions that have suffered during Colombia’s long-lasting internal conflict. All our beans are dry milled in Bogota, and rapidly shipped to the USA via FedEx for roasting. This means we can guarantee newly roasted, ultra-fresh coffee, so that the cup you hold in your hands still breathes the mists of the Colombian campo.

Orange, Mandarin Peel, Lemongrass, Lemon

Variety: Caturra and Tipica
Region: Tolima
Altitude: 1900 MASL


Colombia is the only country in the world where coffee is a year-round crop. All of our coffee is dry-milled in Bogota. From the mills we select the finest beans, place them in burlap sacks, and ship to the United States. They arrive at our Brooklyn roasting plant ten days later. Other coffee roasters take anywhere from three to twelve months to roast their beans; you will notice the difference in your first sip.

The Hambela Coffee Estate has a rich history. Hambela was founded by Muluemebet Emiru who received this land through a government grant for her service as Africa’s first woman pilot in 1934. The farm continues to be owned and operated by Muluemebet’s family as a part of their agricultural development project called Muluemebet Emiru Agricultural Development (METAD)Their workforce is comprised of seventy percent women and has an elementary school on the farm for worker’s children. The school currently has an enrollment of more than three hundred students. METAD offers healthcare to all of their employees and they offer healthcare to all of their employees and work closely with the non profit organization Grounds for Health. In addition, Hambela has the only coffee quality control lab on the African continent that is certified by the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA).

As the Ethiopian Coffee Exchange governs so much of the coffee currently exported from Ethiopia, the Hambela Coffee Estate is one of the very few Ethiopian coffees which maintains its provenance and identity as a single farm produced coffee.

After repose, this coffee is sealed in Grain-Pro barrier packaging at origin and then send on its way to our Roastery where we preserve the green coffee under hermetic seal until it is roasted as part of our Barrington Green Seal Program.

Metropolis Coffee – Mocha Java Blend

The wildness of the Mocha coffee complements the smoothness of the Java coffee.

Metropolis Coffee – Mocha Java Blend

Going back to the origins of coffee, the earliest known blend was a combination of Arabian (Yemen) Mocha Coffee and Indonesian Java Arabica Coffee. The wildness of the Mocha coffee complements the smoothness of the Java coffee.

We decided to bring back a classic by adding Mocha-Java to our year-round menu. This version of the iconic blend pairs a sundried Ethiopian Yirgacheffe with a big bold Sumatra, resulting in endless layers of fudge, blueberry, caramel, strawberry, and oak. If this Mocha-Java was a wine, it would be Cabernet Sauvignon. Enjoy at will.
