The West End Blues Blend was blended and roasted for you by Tandem Coffee Roasters. This Espresso Blend is constantly changing components with fresh, seasonal coffees from Ethiopia and Brazil. Delicious on its own or paired with milk, this coffee has rich notes of toffee and roasted nuts.
I primarily had brewed this as espresso with a small amount of milk added. That was my favorite! It was smooth and rich.
I also had it as a pour over and while it was still enjoyable, I preferred the espresso over this method. One of my favorite coffees I've ever had, and will definitely order again!
too dark but my fault - did not realize this was an espresso blend.
Solid coffee, nothing extraordinary but a great daily driver.
Really loved the taste. Very smooth for a blend.
Excellent, rich coffee. The toffee really comes through.
this was a decent espresso but i hard to work hard to get distinct flavor from it. the toffee and nuttiness sort of blend together without really standing out much.
Really dark and thin, extremely an "old school", southern Italian blend and not really in a good way
Really, really good. Nutty, delicious.
I didn't like the flavor. I like more of a traditional flavor. I think it was a bit too light for me. I tried many different ratios and recipe but couldn't find one that was to my liking.
A bit too bright but not bad
Sour. Could not dial it in to taste better.
This is the best coffee bean I’ve ever ground and turned into espresso. Just the right amounts of nutty, bitter, sweet, and and round, glowing aftertaste. Thank you, West End Blues is perfect.
A hair acidic but that's probably on me, but the notes were great
Definitely not as sweet as some others, but very enjoyable. There's a definite nut flavor, and it's pretty rich. Overall, pretty smooth and enjoyable. Brewing as espresso.
Really liked this one. Smooth but rich at the same time
All I c.an say is WOW. This is a very balanced and rich coffee. My fav so far. Nice job Tandem
This was a very mild blend. Not bad, but not something that I wanted to have every morning either. I didn't pick up on the flavor of nuts or chocolate in this.
My friend liked it, but it was too acid for my taste.
The most comforting first sip ever :) Lovely aroma of brown sugar and baking chocolate. Mild acidity, but complex. Citrus sweetness with an underlying chocolate flavor that complements nicely. Very pleasant and sweet aftertaste.
I've had this espresso in Portland and I was so happy to see it in my queue! I loved it
My favorite one send me more!!
I picked this up while in Maine a week ago and found this to be a very poor espresso roast. It does not perform well at all and very bitter.
I found this coffee to be both bland and overly acidic, no matter how I tweaked the grind, amount, and tamp pressure.
Extremely light roast. Slightly fruity. Low acidity. Not very flavorful.
good, but more bitter than i would like
I'm not big on leaving reviews; I would like to say I enjoyed this blend it was very tasty .
Even though we prefer more fruity notes, this one is great. It’s a lighter roast, so you can pick out all the flavors, pecan and caramel. Very nice!
Light and balanced with a nice nutty aroma and flavor.
Great espresso. Tandem is one of my fave roasters and I've never had them disappoint
Toffee, nutty just like it says. Great comfort coffee. I did get some hints of berries as well
My shipment got lost for 2 weeks, so maybe that had something to do with the flavor being disappointing. It seemed pretty flat, kinda bland.
Love this coffee. Nice balance of fruit and earthy flavors
Great espresso paired with milk.
Good espresso base. Nothing extraordinary. Good nutty flavor.
Solid espresso, but not much unique stood out.
Solid flavor, rich, but not too heavy
Very subtle flavor, to the point I didn't think I had any coffee in my mug and all I could taste was the little milk I added.
Nice rich taste
Decent cup, nothing remarkable.
We absolutely loved this one!
Good flavor, well-balanced. One of my favorites and running out early!
Best blend I've received so far. Well balanced with no bitterness.
This is a really good coffee. There is no real reason that I've not given it 5 stars except that there are others I like more. This is a solid coffee, and if it is the only coffee I ever had again, I'd still be very happy.
rich and balanced
Not as rich as expected
Very very good. Super smooth
Too twangy,,, the fruity acidic flavors really predominate.
Pretty good - neither life-changing nor marginal. Glad i tried it.
Not a bad coffee, but had a bit of an aftertaste
Thin, not very present. I don't want to completely discount this coffee, it was just older than a week when I received it.
This blend was awesome in that it was reliably full-bodied and interesting in the different tastes that were emphasized based on brewing method.
This blend is truly complex with a richness in mouthfeel, aromatics, and all-over profile. Its sweet and spice flavors are perfect for the fall season, but it is robust enough to be enjoyed year-round. This is one of the best espresso blends I've tasted across the country.
I enjoyed this better than the Colombia San Antonio. As a reference, I brew espresso 85% of the time using a Breville Infuser espresso machine. The other 15% of the time I use a Kalita Wave pour over. Thanks, Seth!
