Topic: Arhg, espresso "roast"! (5 msgs / 124 lines)
1) From: miKe mcKoffee
Next we have El Salvador Matalapa -Tablon El Amate, a versatile coffee from
light to espresso roast... On SM Home Page?!
Come on guys!  It's hard enough educating the masses "espresso" is a brewing
method not a roast level...

And a City/City+ (~431f) roasted Ethiopia Sidamo DP, not stretch roasted as
might be done to "tame" for espresso, and most assuredly on the lighter side
of roasts nowhere close to even approaching 2nd crack, still a bit crinkled
and with chaff in the crease, just a well developed 1st, pulls marvelous SO
shots. Currently in one of our SO grinders at the Roastery Lab/Education
Center/Coffeehouse. Most good coffees lighter roasted "can" pull good to
great SO shots if your shot parameters are right. And (~429f) City roasted
Sulawesi Toarco PB also pulls great shots, in other SO grinder. =
ESPRESSO is NOT a roast.
NOWHERE in Tom's roast pictorial guide(s) has "espresso" EVER been a roast
reference level, never. I do believe this is the first time in 10 years I've
been on this List and a customer of Sweet Maria's I've seen Sweet Maria's
officially, as in on their homepage new offerings descriptors, call
"espresso" a roast. =
Frankly I was shocked.

I've never seen it referenced like that either. Definitely needs an
edit. Unacceptable language. We've trashed that term as a level sooo
many times here. And Toms on the other side of the world?
