Owl's Howl Espresso

 

It’s simple: excellent coffee depends on the quality and freshness of green coffee. Like any other fresh crop, coffee eventually stales, losing vibrancy, complexity and sweetness. At Sightglass, we strive to offer only the best coffees possible, taking great care to exclusively buy and work with coffees within their current crop. Essentially, we source, roast, and sell our coffees while they exhibit their maximum expression — before they begin to show any loss of character from aging.

 

Our enduring commitment to these sourcing practices is exemplified by our seasonally rotating Owl’s Howl Espresso blend. We rotate the components that comprise this blend throughout the year to ensure optimal freshness. This gives us the opportunity to showcase beautiful coffees that pair well together in an espresso blend.
