Rogue is our flagship espresso. For this blend, we focus year-round on sourcing coffees with a ton of natural sweetness, full body, and delicate (not overwhelming) acidity. Sourcing carefully with espresso in mind allows us to produce a balanced, user-friendly espresso without needing to roast too dark. A shot of Rogue should taste like berry jam and melted chocolate with a lasting clean finish.
To prepare Rogue, we generally dose 17-18g. We find a 1:2 ratio (34-36g out) to be quite versatile in steamed milk or straight up. If you are looking for extra clarity in your straight espresso, a 1:3 brewing ratio makes a less concentrated espresso that reveals additional complexity and sweetness. If it's possible to adjust your boiler temperature, we recommend setting it to 196ºF.
