David Schomer's Vivace Vita Espresso Coffee has been blended and roasted to create the perfect caffe latte and received an 8 out of 10 in the “with milk” analysis of the Coffee Review rating. Kenneth Davids Coffee Review gave this blend a score of 89 out of 100 in 2004.

David Schomer's Vivace Vita Espresso Coffee is slowly roasted to develop a sweet caramel nature in the cup. Because of the high extraction potential of espresso machines, the roasting process is tuned to develop coffee flavors to the fullest--then quickly stopped before the oils can "sweat" on the surface of the bean.

Espresso Vita has been designed to feature a strong note of caramel when combined with milk products. Incredible body makes this blend ideal for drip coffee and French press as well. Available as whole bean in 12oz bags shipped direct 3 day air to you from the roaster.

Please Note: This coffee is shipped 3-day air directly from the roaster to ensure freshness, and cannot be shipped internationally.

Average Rating : ( 5 out of 5 )

Bold But Not Oily

You may have already read my blog “Oil No More” which is about using oily beans in espresso grinders. As expressed in this blog, many of our customers prefer the dark roasted taste of some of the more oily roasts produced by Starbucks or Peets. As I mentioned in my previous blog, Urnex Grindz is a great product to help prevent oil build up in espresso and coffee grinders when using these roasts. The main attraction to a Starbucks or Peets is that they offer a very intense, bold flavor that is great for cutting milk in milk-based drinks like Cappuccinos or Lattes. Although there are some folks that like to drink this as straight espresso, most will use Starbucks coffee as an additive to an espresso-based drink. I get this question all the time…”I purchased my own espresso machine so I can make lattes like I get a Starbucks but for a lot less money". Then they go on to say “Now I’m being told that oily beans can be harmful to my machine if not used properly”. Not to worry, aside from using Grindz there are also many alternative espressos that we offer with similar flavor characteristics that are not as oily. My personal favorites are either Crema E Aroma by Lavazza or our own Buzzopolis . Both are considered a dark roast with an intense, full bodied flavor. My mother-in-law is considered a die-hard Starbucks fan for many years until I served her an iced latte made with Crema E Aroma. Now this the first thing she asks for in the summer when she visits. Believe me, if she can convert from Starbucks then anybody can. All our staff members here will have their own recommendations for similar coffee so don’t hesitate to give us a call and chat. Happy Brewing!
