Any coffee can be brewed as espresso. Courthouse, our house espresso, is developed a little more in the roaster to soften acidity and increase solubility. With sweet-bittersweet balance, body, crema, and finesse, Courthouse is the classic definition of espresso that we use in our shops. It's aromatic, sweetly fruited and so smooth. Wonderful straight up, this espresso also holds its own in milk drinks.
How we pull a shot in our shops: 19g dose, 200° 25 second shot yielding ~36g.
Courthouse is excellent brewed as drip coffee as well, exhibiting the same flavors in less concentrated fashion.
