Espresso built to Western Europe taste, from traveling the world, the different tastes of coffee and especially espresso can be very delightful. All coffee can be ground and used in espresso, that being said, often the cup will get a sour lingering or woody taste depending on the bean and roast level. Some people enjoy this, we have beans that produce this. Although our espresso blend is formulated for a creamy chocolate finish with roof-of-your-mouth velvety coating. A true blend that takes you on a trip to Paris. The Italian blend on the other hand provides that Northern Italy pleasant aftertaste, its not bitter, but bold! Try them both for your own unique experiences.
Venison Chili Recipe with Black Powder Coffee Coldbrew Concentrate – C4
For years we have added coffee to our chili to add a depth of flavor. Now that we have our own coffee roasting business, i didn’t understand the flavor difference of adding a nice dark roasted Sumatra or Sulawesi vs a lighter roasted Colombian. Wow. Experiment for your self or use the C4 Concentrate to maximize the flavor.
1 hr 40 minutes (or crockpot for 4-6 hrs)

- 14 1⁄2ounces diced tomoatoe (chili style)
