Onobeano's Latte Blend

It's not hard to believe that most espresso machines are used more to brew espresso for use in espresso drinks than for shots of pure espresso (at least in this country), yet most espresso blends are concocted towards the goal of pulling a godshot - do you see anything wrong with this picture?

Those that know me know I definitely march to a different drummer, so the origin of this espresso blend should not surprise anybody.

After years of (chasing that same goal) and experimenting with different espresso blends, it finally occurred to me that we don't drink espresso shots. We DO, however, really enjoy a nice latte - our evening lattes have become ritual at our house. Sorry all you espresso purists, but I must admit that neither of us really enjoy a shot of pure espresso. I finally realized that every blend I concocted, while decent as an espresso (with a pretty crema just like in the pictures), nothing was exceptional, even decent, for making lattes (or cappuccinos, et al)!

This epiphany changed my approach, and after a bit of experimentation, the new goal was reached - WOW! We ended up with a rich, sweet, chocolatey shot that really bloomed in a cup of steamed milk. There is very little crema, but crema gets lost in an espresso drink anyway, right?

It was soooo good (no bitter taste here!), too good to keep to ourselves, that I decided to share it with all the rest of you espresso drink aficionados. For those of you who prefer flavored espresso drinks, you will find this blend works equally as well using flavored coffee creamers available at your local supermarket, although it does get VERY sweet.

Try this blend and see if it increases your enjoyment of your favorite espresso drink too. Onobeano's Latte Blend - also good in other espresso drinks.

To help ensure each bag is properly proportioned, we are not offering it as a 1/2 lb sample, but a one pound bag is returnable, just in case you don't like it.

Recently I bought 2 pounds to give this blend a try. I make 2 drinks each for my wife and I each morning. Here's what I make: 2 ounces of hot water - pull a 2 ounce shot on top of that in my Mini-Vivaldi. Then I steam about 5 ounces of milk and split it evenly between the 2 drinks. So, it's an Americano or a long black with steamed milk on top. This makes a first class drink. I roasted this blend about 30 seconds into 2nd crack in my RK drum.

The Obeano blend is my mainstay. I think I've tried every Chocolaty/Buttery item in the the Matrix, and I always fall back to the Obeano blend. I'm trying a new one this week to see if it is as good, we'll see. Al Flowers Central Virginia Piedmont

This is my first home roasted coffee, and it is Delicious!!! I drink cappuccino, and I could never find a bold enough flavor without introducing bitterness. I roast in a popper for 8 minutes to get a nice French roast and out comes perfection!!! I am from New Orleans and always drank coffee and chicory, but this blend is better without it. It makes Perfect Cappuccino....MMMMM

This is a wonderful blend!!! It is very versatile. I did two different roasts with this: Full City and Vienna At Fully City, this is bright and chocolaty with some fruit - almost like a sweet Guatemalan with a dash of a Brazil plus something else for highlight. At Vienna (and I roasted on the dark side of Vienna) more nuts and chocolate came out while the fruit and brightness receded. The body became much fuller. No bitterness at all!!! I wish all major espresso chains carried this blend!!! You can roast it dark with out it becoming bitter. This is really a two for one blend: you can roast it lighter for a bright fruit laced latté or darker for a more full bodied chocolate nut latté.

Holy cow is this good! I am a total coffee roasting snob and even on my first batch - ever - I made a latte that was ten times better than anything I had done before. Its a fresh, smooth, flavorful latte. Great side benefit... my house now smells like chocolate and fresh roasted coffee!

This blend is exactly as advertised. Sweet and chocolately and yummy. I'm a confessed latte lover and this blend is so sweet, I now use far less milk in my morning latte than I used to with other espresso blends.
Your words make me feel proud - mahalo nui loa "anonymous"!!
