Known for bright, fruity coffees, Slate created this espresso blend as their nod to the beauty of a traditional café au lait. With or without milk, this creamy, chocolatey blend may be the crema of the crop...
If Slate Coffee’s espresso could ever be explained as “classic” then it would be Crema. A blend of two different Brazilian beans, designed to be viscous, clean, and balanced. Notes of cocoa, caramel, and cashew butter.
"Everything from Slate rocks! I swear they have some of THE best coffee in all of Seattle. I always go to their shops when I visit. Money, Money, Money. I wish this popped up more on my subscription. "
"Chose this blend based off the description, and I have to say I was not disappointed! Definitely one of the best espresso roasts I've ever had! Totally lives up to the name, creamy, flavorful, absolutely delicious. Will definitely buy again."
"Very smooth and creamy, chocolaty. Great for a mocha latte"
"This coffee is my all time favorite. Delicious taste and aroma."
"Another great coffee from Slate. I usually drink single origins but this blend is very yummy, sweet, and nice chocolate notes."
"Pretty good nutty flavors and nice smooth finish with a decent body. "
"This one has to be in my top 3 of coffees I have received. It is the ideal latte (imagine a warm mug, cuddled up in your comfy blanket sip heaven). "
"This was an AMAZING coffee. I didn't think I would like it as much as I did. It's light and sweet which is not what I'd normally go for but this blended so well. Loved it!"
"Really enjoyed the nutty notes of this coffee. Great, smooth flavor."
"What can I say besides Slate knows how to roast. This is an exceptional espresso & even is great brew through all methods. This is a good one to enjoy."
"It is good if you are looking for something with a sweet kick to it. Typically a good crema too."
"Aroma is great, as is the mouthfeel. It's a bold, but not roasty coffee that is great in the mornings. The chocolate and cashew butter notes are exquisite. It's great in french presses and as a drip. "
"Really enjoyed this coffee! It’s has a light body and smooth taste. The nutty flavor is definitely there with a hint of chocolate. This can be enjoyed without creamer! This is a great evening coffee"
"I received a trial pack of this and was blown away! I don't normally care for this kind of roast so was wary of it initially, but I'm going to order more. It's so smooth and doesn't leave a grody aftertaste at all. "
"Beans are light colored and smell sweet and decadent, like peanut brittle. espresso shot on its own tastes bright and acidic, with notes of chocolate. This roast is very light and creamy. Did not stand up well to my usual double 12 oz latte, however, it's perfect in a double 6 oz latte."
"Very rich and light tasting smooth creamy flavor! Loved it!"
