The WestBean Coffee Roasters

San Diego, CA

A cup of coffee is beautiful in its simplicity. However the process from seed to cup is far from simple. It's an unbelievable result stemming from growing, farming, processing & sorting the fruit. Every step of the process will influence the end taste. By respecting the overall process and how the green coffee made it into our hands, we make it our responsibility to explore each varietal by diving deeper and deeper into the intricacies of the roasting process. It is only when the coffee is skillfully roasted, that it has a chance to be prepared at the highest level, crafting a great cup. To us a cup of black coffee is colorful and complex in its own way. At the WestBean we let our craft speak for itself.

A medium-mild, sweet blend. Composed of three single-origin, estate grown beans. Our espresso blend offers a clear departure from the acidic, burnt, smokey, West Coast espresso blends. Fantastic on its own, it holds up perfect in a classic Cappuccino, Macchiato, or Latte. We think evaluated our Sweet Sussex best in their 92-point review below:

"Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. A big winner in four parts milk. Co-taster Andy Newbom (90) had it at 9 in milk while Ken (93) went to the limit at 10. Both keyed on a big, round, peachy fruit complexity and fine balance of milk and coffee. As straight espresso dominated by fruit as well: ripe, apricot-toned, a little wine-like, with a tart "sparkle" (Andy) of citrus. But the whole sensory package bloomed in milk with particular power and completeness."
