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.

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.

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.
