Fresh From the Roastery :: Lovejoy Espresso BlendMarch 23rd, 2011 by Amanda
We’re excited to present our new Lovejoy Espresso Blend. We set out to create a blend with complexity, rich crema and sweetness to spare. Lovejoy Espresso has sweet raspberry and dark chocolate flavors, hints of butterscotch and a bit of citrus. With its impressive body and superb balance, the Lovejoy Espresso is delicious as a straight shot and shines powerfully through milk in a latte or cappuccino. Although Lovejoy was designed with espresso in mind, we also love it in a French Press or Technivorm.
Lovejoy is named after one of the founding fathers of our fair city. Asa Lovejoy wanted to name Portland after his beloved hometown of Boston, while his friend, Francis Pettygrove, wanted to name the city after his hometown of Portland, ME. At odds, the two tossed a coin, Lovejoy lost, and the city was christened Portland, Oregon.
Asa Lovejoy may have lost the coin toss, but as far as we know nobody’s named an espresso blend after Pettygrove!
