My Old Favorite Coffee

I finally tried the Equator Estate Jaguar espresso blend. It's maybe not the end all that I remember it being, but it is still extremely good. The beans, described on the Equator Estate website as being chestnut colored, are very oily and indeed the exact color of chestnut shells. The flavor is smoky and chocolaty and chalky, not only like my favorite espresso genre of minerally "department store" blends, but also like "cigar" coffees (e.g. Chock-Full O' Nuts): it's the best of all worlds for an espresso, at least.

The Lavazza Pienaroma, which is our lab's default coffee now, is a similar blend, but not as dark or oily.
