This unexpectedly came in the mail from a client in London. First shot was awful. Dialed in about 4th shot. Takes a few shots after that to get used to the taste and figure out what all is going on with the flavor profiles since I'm used to a very different style of espresso.
Wendelboe wants to bring out the natural sweetness in his beans. It's like eating something spicy and you don't get the spiciness immediately but it builds in a minute or so. 30 seconds after you finish a shot this sweet finish builds. After a few more shots I'm realizing how fantastic this is and how unique and then the bag is finished. Never had any espresso like this. Don't know if I'll ever get more of this but it was really good. It would be my go to espresso bean if it was more accessible. Shipped to USA from his online store it's $105.00 including VAT. Even the packaging was unique and of a higher quality.
His website is an excellent source, he blogs a lot about his experience.
