Featured Espresso: Detour Ethopian Yirgacheffe Koke

Spotted: Dark Horse Espresso Bar (Spadina)
Beans: Single Origin-- Yirgacheffe Koke
Region: Ethiopian 
Roasters: Detour Coffee Roasters
Located: Dundas, ON

Technical: Pulled for 23-25 seconds at 198F

Verdict: this is extremely sweet aromatic roast, with crisp notes of blueberry, and sweet lime. Jasmine/Floral hints round out the cup. Delicious from the beginning to the end. So airy that you'll be back for more.

Personally, I am a huge fan of what is being produced out the Yirgacheffe region.

Dark Horse is also pulling 49th Parallel Epic Espresso.

Looking for new changes in 2011;
Dark Horse Espresso Blend from the chaps at Detour is currently being roasted this week.

Going from just Brazilian SO, to a blend of Brazilian and Guatemalan . Discover this at any of the three locations this weekend.

NEW cafe is open, going to make time to visit the new shoppe.
