Fidalgo Food Pairings: Affogato

Fidalgo Food Pairings: Affogato

For this recipe we will be using one of our top selling coffees: Fidalgo's Sunset Blend - roasted skillfully to bring out notes of chocolate and brown sugar. 

Make sure your coffee is ground for espresso. The proper grind is crucial to a balanced and delicious shot of espresso. The texture your looking for is somewhere between powdered sugar and fine sand. If you aren't able to achieve this consistency at home, contact us and our team can grind your coffee on Fidalgo's commercial grinders.

It means many things and has been a decades long conversation in our industry. I have written and talked about coffee beans as specialty by using the basics from SCAA standards. Here's my definition based on my experience as a member of the SCAA/SCA (Specialty Coffee Association): Specialty coffee is coffee that is free of primary defects in a 1-pound sample and with a notable taste. This definition best serves Fidalgo Coffee's needs and goals, but the story keeps going.

Life is complicated enough, let’s take one potential debate off the table:
