Subject: Espresso Beans
Hi Everybody,

Just wondering if people would like to weigh in on what are some good
beans to buy for home espresso? I've bought pre-roasted beans from
sweet maria's which I've been fairly happy with but I'd like to try
some other stuff. Any ideas?

If it matters to anyone I have a Gaggia espresso and MDF (both of
which I'm very happy with).

See ya!

Shane,

Like you, I have tried Espresso Vivace roasts. Personally I have
always preferred their <a href="http://www.espressocoffeesnobs.com/
ecsblog/2007/01/espresso-vivace-roasteria-cafe-seattle.html" >Vita
espresso roast</a > as it has more depth of flavor in my opinion - not
that I don't think Dolce is also a very good roast. I used Vivace as
my primary supplier for several months before I moved to Victrola
earlier this year. Right now I am sold on their <a title="review of
Victrola Coffee's Streamline espresso roast" href="http://
www.espressocoffeesnobs.com/ecsblog/2007/04/victrola-espresso-beans-great.html" >Streamline
espresso roast</a > that as I mentioned above in an earlier post. Apart
from taste, this has to be the easiest roast I've ever found for
producing lots of crema. I just placed my latest online order with
Victrola this past Monday and noticed they have a brand new espresso
roast, so I added a pound of that to my order...I'll get back to you
on how I find that.

Hi Flasherly,

Like you I have a Gaggia. I have tried quite a few espresso roasts
that I mostly buy online. Right now my favorite by far is Seattle's
Victrola's Steamline Espresso Roast. You can find my review of this
and some other roasts I've tried at

Where do you live? Location matters because of shipping charges and
time.

I like the beans at www.rutamaya.com. They offer a good selection of
pre-roasted blends & their commitment to the indigenous peoples of Central
America is admirable. They're located in Austin, TX, with a coffee house in
San Antonio.
