Buzzopolis is the perfect blend of Central American and African beans for a balanced, richly complex coffee combination. Buzzopolis delivers a deep, syrupy shot of espresso with striking flavors of berry, plum, spice, and smoke. It has been roasted medium-dark to bring out the aromatic flavor of the beans, producing a full-bodied taste and a lingering finish.
Body is the distinct texture and thickness of a beverage that defines how it feels when it sits on your tongue, sometimes referred to as mouthfeel. For example, hot chocolate has an extremely full body, while a beverage such as iced tea has a very light body. When it comes to the body of coffee, darker roasts like Buzzopolis are known for having a somewhat fuller body than lighter roasts.
Acidity is marked by the tangy sensation it creates on the back and sides of the tongue. For example, a tart citrus fruit has an extremely bright acidity, while more mild fruits would have less acidity, making them balanced like an apple, or smooth like a banana. Acidity is perhaps the most striking flavor characteristic in a cup of coffee, and although Buzzopolis is a dark roast, it has a surprisingly bright, pleasing acidity with sweet undertones.
Every coffee requires its own type of roast to capture the best aroma and flavor, so finding the right roast is as much a science as an art. Each variety of coffee bean is microbatch-roasted separately, then combined to create Buzzopolis. Microbatch-roasting guarantees that the beans are not over-roasted and never burnt, so every cup you drink will be rich with the peak flavors of the coffee. Buzzopolis is roasted just long enough to bring out the complex flavors in the beans.
This 100% Arabica blend combines some of the best beans from Central America and Africa.
We measured the caffeine content for all of our blends. For a typical single shot of espresso, we used 7 grams of ground coffee. Buzzopolis contains 63.31 milligrams in a 1.5 oz shot of espresso.
Buzzopolis combines some of the finest quality beans in the world, all ranked in the top 10.
Buzzopolis is a versatile espresso roast, and is best finely ground for a flavorful extraction. Its smooth enough to enjoy as a straight espresso shot or as an americano, but its full-bodied taste also produces wonderful lattes and cappuccinos. Buzzopolis is perfect for an after movie indulgence coupled with crème brulee, flan or other light dessert. The rich, full-bodied Buzzopolis will be the ying to the flans yang!

As you’re enjoying the last rays of summer, consider that in a few years you could be lathering on the coffee to prevent skin cancer. Findings published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science suggests that chemicals commonly found in coffee have the ability to absorb UV radiation when applied directly to the skin. Researchers at Rutgers University genetically engineered mice to suppress the same enzyme that caffeine does in humans and have found that they were slower to develop skin cancer. Because of its ability to suppress ATR, the enzyme responsible for turning damaged skin cells cancerous, scientists have suggested that caffeine could be added to sunscreens to boost protection levels.
In a strange twist, caffeine molecules may also help you develop a nice tan in addition to protecting your skin from tumors and cancer. Caffeine has actually been shown to stimulate pigment cells, urging them to produce more color. So, a safer tan may not be too far on the horizon.
If you're tired of the same old drinks, break out of the rut with a creative latte. This month's recipe is perfect for the adventurous latte lovers out there.

With St. Patrick's Day right around the corner, may the luck...and drinks, of the Irish be with you. Given the upcoming festivities, now is as good a time as any to take a look at the history of one of the most (in)famous, drinks in the world—the Irish Coffee.
In true Celtic fashion, think Leprechauns and pots of gold, the origins of the Irish Coffee begins with a local folklore...Legend has it that the drink was invented in a cafe at the now-defunct Foynes Airport. In 1943, on a particularly nasty winter evening, a flight bound for Botwood, Newfoundland made the critical decision to return to Foynes after several hours in the air. Consider that 1943 was during WWII and commercial air travel was really in its infancy—think well-heeled men and women on a flying-boat voyage. The circumstances of the diverted flight were trying at best and left passengers a little bit more than peeved.
Upon making the decision to head back to Foynes, the captain reportedly sent a Morse-code message to the control tower, alerting ground operations personnel of the impending return. At the terminal, preparations were made to welcome back the crew and passengers. I know, you're skeptical already; but keep in mind, this was the 1940s...flying was a glitzy affair.
Back to the regularly scheduled story...Head chef Joe Sheridan of the airport restaurant was hastily asked to make something to warm the passengers and lift their spirits. He decided to...well...add a little spirit to their drinks. After all what could keep you warmer and happier than a hot coffee and some good old Irish whiskey? As the night progressed and everybody had been served, one of the passengers approached Sheridan to thank him for the hospitality. Making small talk, the passenger asked if Brazilian coffee had been used to prepare the drink...To which Sheridan responded "No, that was Irish Coffee." The rest is history.
From that night forward, Irish Coffee was served to all passengers going through Foynes Airport. The tradition continues to this day; dignitaries arriving at Shannon Airport are still welcomed with a warm cup of Irish Coffee. Want to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in style?

Coffee and espresso are our passions, here at Whole Latte Love. The pursuit of its perfection has led us to form relationships with and offer products from more than 60 manufacturers. We carry some of the most advanced equipment on the market, from grinders to espresso machines, frothers and more. But, as many coffee lovers will attest, great beverages must start with quality coffee. All the equipment in the world won't be able to help you brew gourmet espresso from charred beans; which is why we introduced Whole Latte Love Signature coffee as a way for customers to get great tasting drinks at affordable prices.
The patriarch of our line of coffee is the venerable and ever-popular Malabar Gold. Created by a nuclear physicist turned coffee roaster, Malabar gold is easily recognized by its deep, rich crema that can last for more than 20 minutes. This blend of Monsooned Malabar, De Luxe Indian Robusta and select Arabica has been roasted in the light Northern Italian tradition to deliver mellow coffee and espresso with low acidity.
Another fan favorite is our distinct dark-roast espresso, Buzzopolis. This collection of Columbian, Costa Rican, Mexican and Sumatran beans is well balanced and bright. Buzzopolis is celebrated for its smoky flavors of plumb, spice and berry that deliver full-bodied beverages. This blend is smooth enough for espresso, but it is also well liked by cappuccino and latte drinkers as it has the ability to stand out in milk-based beverages.
Reflection, our decaf espresso, brews sweet, well-balanced drinks that won't keep you up at night. It packs decadent flavors caramel and chocolate punctuated by fruity notes. Reflection is a blend of fine Central American, Indonesian and African beans.
For drip coffee drinkers, Ethereal and Unconditional offer unique taste profiles and aromas. Unconditional is a decaffeinated blend of Columbian, African and Indonesian coffees micro-batch roasted for unparalleled results. Unconditional features mouth-watering flavors of hazelnut, toffee and plum with a bright body and medium acidity. Ethereal, on the other hand, is a full-bodied coffee with hints of red wine, spice, chocolate and berry. It is a dark roast that is ideal for breakfast and a great companion for bread and pastries.
We also have two samplers to choose from, if you want a taste of all our coffees. Each of our signature coffee has a colorful label adorned with artwork from Whole Latte Love employees and customers.

Love it! Perfect for folks used to the strong StarB. taste, without their burnt/overroasted flavor. At one point I had resorted to mixing beans from StarB. Dark Roast with various offerings from Italian roasters (Lavazza mostly). However, this is a strong flavorful solution in one bag.

Buzzopolis, a darker roast, makes a good latte, with a smokier, earthy taste. Monaco is a lighter espresso roast and is much smoother and sweeter than Buzzopolis....both are good, I prefer Monaco for my mandatory morning latte....as does my wife. They are easy to indentify in a blind taste test with each other.
Stout espresso, holds up well in a latte...smoky taste, due to darkness of roast.

I had to try this out with a name like Buzzopolis. It does not disappoint. IN fact I was pleasantly surprised. The beans are nice dark roast, and give off a kind of nutty aroma upon grinding. The crema is decent and the taste is actually quite smooth....and of course a great buzz too-boot. This is now added to my favorites list...good roasting job WLL
Taste, aroma, and a good buzz.
You really need a Bur Grinder for this. I set mine at 6 with fresh beans and Tamp a little lighter than normal.
Espresso & Latte
great tasting coffee and wonderful crema!
When I first tried Buzzopolis when I received my Expobar Office a few years ago, we loved it. I just tried Buzzopolis again, and I think it's a tad too dark. An espresso shot is pretty good, and you can taste the berry hints, but I find there is a slightly bitter foretaste.
I am always looking for my favorite bean/chocolate combination for my mochas. When I go to Starbucks, I order my mochas with 40% less chocolate so it is not as sweet. Over the last 8 years I have tried most of the Lavazzas, some custom blends, and some not sold by WLL. Buzzopolis is my favorite for lattes/mochas because the espresso stands up to the milk and sweetness. It has a long finish too. When making pure espresso I might use different beans, but for lattes this is perfect.
Mostly mochas using Starbucks chocolate powder.

Decent - about 7 out of 10
Nice smooth smoky taste, never bitter dilutes well without loosing all its flavor. It's been a favorite with "non-espresso" loving folks
Typically about a 4oz cup. Often dilute further for those favoring American style strength
Very nice and lasting
I use Buzzopolis as my every day coffee and it works well in a fully automatic machine. Single shots are good with no bitter of acid shock. A well rounded espresso roast bean.
Single shots to large coffees.
Saeco fully automatic.
Very good crema.
I enjoyed the slightly smokey flavor, but I didn't find this robust enough to stand up to the milk in cappucinos and lattes. Might be better just as espresso.
