Enticing notes of caramel and rich milk chocolate are
complemented by hints of sweet citrus. Especially well suited for
straight shots of espresso.
“Upsetter” is our light roast blend for the Point Cabrillo
Lighthouse. Created by our Roastmaster, Jacob Long, this blend for
the espresso cafes we supply here in Northern California. What we
wanted was a coffee blend with a soft acidity, and the sweetness of
plums and blueberry fruit.
So, we went to one of our favorite Nicaraguan cooperatives,
SOPPEXCCA for the base. It is a sweet coffee, very forward on the
palate, and it’s acidity is not bright or citric like most great
coffees, making it, perhaps, out of balance, but perfect for
creating “Upsetter”. We married it to a fruity “dry process
Ethiopian coffee from the Yirgacheffe region to give us the mellow
berry notes and between those two coffees you have the secret to
75% of the blend.
This coffee pairs well with delicate foods especially egg based
breakfasts and afternoon desserts.
For those who have an espresso machine, it makes a beautiful
espresso that turns a latte into a hot milkshake if you steam the
Cabrillo Lightkeepers are a strong-knit group of volunteers
that are passionate about preserving Mendocino’s history. Since
1909, the Point Cabrillo Lighthouse has illuminated the ocean off
Fort Bragg and Mendocino’s shores. Thanks to the efforts of the
community, this will continue for years to come.
Join the team of Point Cabrillo Lightkeepers by purchasing our
light roast Lightkeepers Blend! A portion of the proceeds are
donated to the lighthouse and its ongoing restoration.
*Milk has lactic acid as a major component. Heating milk
converts lactic acid into lactose (dairy sugar). Steamed properly,
the milk foam is sweet. With a double shot of Upsetter Espresso it
becomes a wonderfully delightful latte, without the carbony notes
to spoil the coffee flavor.
