Old School Espresso


A Medium-Dark roast espresso.


Old School Espresso is 49th’s tribute to a traditional espresso with a Pacific North West style. Roasted medium-dark, it highlights the sweetness and body of the coffee. 

Old School Espresso is ideal for those who prefer low acidity and full body with dark chocolate aromas and flavours of cocoa, caramel and molasses.
