The story on this blend comes from experimenting with many samples and samples blends. There was a moment when someone said this is pretty “badass”. So we choose that blend and named it that as well. That was almost 5 years ago and these days we have kept the saying going as a kind of "Moto" in the roastery. "Stay Badass":- It means every intention, purpose or vision for the future has to be worthy. If it doesn't meet the "badass" litmus test, then we simply won't do it.
This blend works well for espresso on its own but is flexible and can hold up to milk based espresso drinks as well.
This coffee is so diverse. You can brew it any method and it should be pretty badass. No pun intended.
Depending on your grinder quality we would say go as fine as possible until it starts to taste bitter, then just back off the grinder one or two settings to find the sweet spot.
" We always bring the badass espresso on hiking trips in Summer. It always makes getting up in the morning easier even when its a rainy day. We brew it with our little Italian Stovetop pot" - Glenn
