“Man, I wish you had something I could make espresso with,” our friend Ashley said. “Ah,” we replied, “here’s a blend we’re testing and think it may work. Take some and tell us what you think.” And voilà, Burn Rate was born as a customer-tested & approved dark roast appropriate for espresso. A heavy dose of rich, smooth Brazilian beans blended with spicy-sweet Sumatra Mandheling, it has been a big hit not only for espresso but especially as a dark-roast brewed coffee. A staple of the cold-brew lineup in our retail shop, Burn Rate is a consistent customer favorite.
