Onyx Coffee Lab Ozark Copper Espresso Blend
$16.00 – $75.00
Oozing with blood orange, cherry and hints of chocolate, this is the Onyx coffee we recommend to folks who enjoy a lighter, fruitier espresso for small milk drinks or straight espressos.
Ozark Copper is one of two blends we recreate year round that are specifically designed for espresso. This is the lighter-roasted, more fruit forward and a naturally sweet counterpart to Red Queen. We wanted an espresso that intentionally worked with low amounts of milk or on its own. Ozark Copper is delicate and tends to get lost in beverages of milk that have a volume of 12oz or more. When tasted as pure espresso or in small amounts of milk the idea of coffee as a juicy fruit really becomes obvious. Purity in coffee is what Ozark Copper represents, a beautiful image of where modern espresso is going. It’s higher in acidity yet retains large amounts of sweetness and a thick coating body. Ozark Copper always uses a naturally processed East African coffee to exude huge fruit flavors and a Central or South American coffee depending on the season for complex sugar browning notes. The combining of processing methods is another variable that allows for interesting complexity. Look for juicy cherry up front, almond sweetness in the middle, and a finish of complex dry cocoa. Your tactile experience should be a juicy round body with a medium creamy mouthfeel that can be coating.
