This is the Southpaw Espresso brought to you by PT's Coffee Roasting Co. Southpaw Espresso is a bright and juicy light-medium roast blend that earns its name from being nimble, surprising, and packed with a punch. This shot is well balanced, achieving a complex and sweet flavor profile with enough body to shine in short milk drinks.
More geared towards individuals that like a lighter roast. Felt like it was missing something for me.
It's ok. Pretty traditional. Probably best in milk.
Pretty solid espresso. Once again, a bit light so it's better as an espresso shot without milk imo. Probably won't order again as I mainly drink cortados and cappucinos.
Very good. Nicely balanced.
Unfortunately I'm getting a lot of bitterness and astringency, which are stronger when this coffee is prepared as an espresso. These are toned down in a pour over, with a slight roasty aftertaste. There is a fruity acidity that comes through, though it doesn't balance out the bitterness. My bag had none of the sweeter caramel or sugarcane notes.
EDIT: Waited 12 days post roast as per roaster website instructions, and a hint of sweetness finally peeked through. It's still predominantly bitter, though the astringency has toned down. With a splash of oat milk, the pourover becomes more acid forward.
Good flavor, excellent espresso.
Very peachy. I dig it.
It was delicious, I just never picked up on the peach or caramel flavor notes
