Trying some of @assemblyroast’s house espresso on split at @nemesis.coffee.
A washed Colombian, I’m always a bit leery to try house espressos because they’re usually roasted for approachability instead of interestingness. And while this doesn’t blow my socks off, it’s certainly not boring and a roast to be proud of.
Straight, it has this lovely juicy mouthfeel that lingers well with the roast’s natural surupyness. (/hat-tip to @selfj245) I don’t get a roasted marshmallows note, to me it comes through as more of a gentle roasted chestnut. Definitely get the stone fruit though. It retains most of its character in milk, a good characteristic of a house roast. All in all, an enjoyable espresso. 👌👍☕️
