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.
Love the 9 bar espresso.. so delicious. Love that I can buy it local and mine it’s fresh.
Bought it for my husband.... his review: Very smooth, great cup of espresso. I haven't had a pick me up like that since meth and was pleasantly surprised it had none of the downsides. :-)
