ABOUT THIS ITEM: Creamy, low acid, chocolatey, and a hint of licorice. Pleasant lingering finish. Stands up well in milk-based espresso beverages.
Bleeker Street Espresso® brings back reminiscences of the days in The Village when warm friends such as Dizzy Gellespie dropped by Gillies to chat between sets next door at Art Delugoff's Village Gate. I shared my last cuppa with specialty coffee comrade-in-arms Alfred Peet, down the street, at Gillies’ customer Le Figaro Café on the corner of McDougal & Bleeker. Bleeker Street Espresso® is a blend of Natural and Washed Arabicas, with a soupcon of Wet Polished Robusta.
Each coffee is individually hand roasted. We let the beans rest overnight; then they are hand blended to our own special recipe. Our time honored methods, added to our abiding respect for the farmer, our customer, and the consumer contribute to Bleeker Street Espresso®. A blend of which we are justly proud.
