Cup Characteristics: The Sermon is our fruit forward and heavy bodied espresso. A fresh, lighty tart blueberry and coffee cherry up front, with dark chocolate in the finish. These flavor characteristics blend incredibly well in milk drinks making a cappuccino with The Sermon decadent and dessert-like.
Sourcing Information: Sermon has always been a new take on an old classic. A round body, heavy chocolate notes, and berry sweetness are what we consistently strive for. We taste dozens of offerings each season to find the perfect combination to achieve this end. This season, we present a three bean blend hailing from Central America and Africa. João de Campos, a dry-processed Yellow Catuai from Brasil, offers a sturdy body and sturdy background, while Kebado, from Sidamo, provides the intense berry notes. Balancing out these extremes is Bella Vista, which is a remarkably clean wet-processed Bourbon from El Salvador thatbridges the gap between the João and Kebado. Together they yield an espresso that is both exciting and approachable.
Preparation Recommendations: The Sermon excels on a wide variety of espresso machine types (including the old-school, vintage lever machine types). We use a relatively standard approach on our more modern equipment; 20 grams in, 24-26 seconds, yeilding 17-18 grams (about 1.25oz). Some folks also like to use the blend on their coffee brewer or press pot for a deep cup.
