"I wish you had something I could make espresso with," our friend Ashley said. "Ah," we replied, "here's a blend we're testing and think it may work. Take some and tell us what you think." And voilà, Burn Rate was born as a customer-tested & approved dark roast that works great for espresso. A heavy dose of rich, smooth Brazilian beans blended with spicy-sweet Sumatra Mandheling, it has been a consistent customer favorite in our retail shop as both a hot and cold brewed dark roast. Enjoy!
