the final product of speedwell’s nine bar blend is the perfect balance of flavor, body, and jolt. everything you need in a cup! indulgent chocolate, nut and fruit notes all mingle in this blend. it pairs beautifully with oat milk, but is delicious on its own as well which can’t be said of every espresso. decedent treat when poured over ice cream. found this blend on a whim at a farm stand, and eventually had to go to the source. first two 1lb bags and finally i had to upgrade to the 5lber as i live about an hour away and this is by FAR the best espresso in the area. this stuff mayyy run in my veins at this point.
nice med dark blend, good balance of body and sweetness. Highly recommended!
If you're using a Londonium for espresso, suggest a PI of 4.0-4.2.
One of my favorite restaurants uses this blend and we had to track it down.
Best espresso blend I’ve found - amazing for lattes, doppios, and americanos.
This actually gets me the best espresso I've ever made! I really appreciate the brewing suggestions on here, they were super useful. I only had to change my grind size once to pull a PERFECT shot! It really is an asking espresso blend :)
I am a home Barista with a lot of time, money and research invested into my dual boiler machine, grinder, scales, water etc. I also have a coffee roaster that I bought from Speedwell that I use when I have time. Making espresso has become a passion and some would say an obsession of mine! I have tried a lot of different espresso blends but always come back to Speedwell's Nine Bars which is the best by far! Their shipping is super fast but if I forget to order in time, I can always swing by and pick up a fresh bag of beans. Their customer service is top notch. When I was first starting out 5 years ago, Derek even gave me a tour through the facility. Kudos to Speedwell for roasting the best coffee and having the best customer service.
