    Here's the basic espresso recipe that we use in all of our shops:

    Dose: 18-20g of freshly ground espresso

    Yield: 28-32g of brewed espresso

    Time: 28-32 seconds of extraction

    Age: 7-14 days after roast, when our espresso tastes best.

    Brewing Temp: 200-205F


    We would recommend using a lighter dose for fresher coffee (18g for 7 days) and a heavier dose for older coffee (20g for 14 days). This is a general rule, so feel free to play around with it. Most importantly, trust your taste buds and take notes along the way.

      My favorite espresso blend

      Owl's Howl is just about perfect for a traditional espresso flavor profile. There's not much else to say. It's rich, nuanced, chocolatey, nutty, and floral in perfect harmony. Plus, it has a crema level that is always just right. It's hard to think of any way they could make this product better (without putting it on sale!)

      Very Nice Med/Med-Dark Coffee

    FAQ

    Is Sightglass coffee organic?

    Most of the coffee that we source annually is certified Organic. These coffees go into classic blends like Blueboon, Toketee, Owl's Howl, Crown Point, and Hunky Dory. On our single origin menu, Worka Chelbessa from the Yirgacheffe region of Ethiopia is certified Organic. We purchase other single origin coffees yearly with Organic certifications but are often sold as conventional coffees.

    What are the brewing instructions for espresso? What is the recommended brewing temperature and extraction time/ratio?

    Here's the basic espresso recipe that we use in all of our shops:


    Dose: 18-20g of freshly ground espresso

    Yield: 28-32g of brewed espresso

    Time: 28-32 seconds of extraction

    Age: 7-14 days after roast, when our espresso tastes best.

    Brewing Temp: 200-205F


    We would recommend using a lighter dose for fresher coffee (18g for 7 days) and a heavier dose for older coffee (20g for 14 days). This is a general rule, so feel free to play around with it. Most importantly, trust your taste buds and take notes along the way.

    How many cups of coffee are in a bag?

    Using the recipe that we use in-store, each 12oz bag makes 17 cups of coffee - just the right amount for one person to use in two weeks or for a pair of coffee drinkers to enjoy in a week. 

    Each 2LB bag makes 45 cups of coffee - just the right amount for one person to use in 3 weeks for two people

    Each 5LB bag makes 113 cups of coffee - just the right amount for one person to use in 8 weeks for two people

    Is Owl's Howl a dark, medium or light roast?

    Our Owl's Howl espresso is light/medium roast. It's a bright and fruity espresso with a blend of chocolate, fruit and balanced acidity.

    Compared to other espressos, it's a good deal lighter than most other roasters.


    How long does Sightglass coffee stay fresh?

    Sightglass coffee tastes best up to six weeks after the roast date printed on the back of the sealed bag. Once opened, we recommend you use the coffee within two weeks for optimal freshness. Coffee will taste best when ground immediately before brewing.
