Hardy Mountain Coffee Roasters
Blends and Espresso coffees:
*Note: espresso is not determined by its degree of roast, but rather its balance of selected green beans best prepared as espresso (an extraction method using hot water and steam). Each varietal of green bean should be able to stand alone as a single origin, but together have a sensational cup profile. In this case the sum is greater than its parts.
