Like the other blends lovingly crafted by East Van Roasters, the Empress Espresso is named for a strong female archetype that leads with love, compassion, and gives voice to good. Aligned with this theme, the farms where the beans are grown all offer support in some form to their surrounding communities and ecosystems. The darker roast and rich tasting notes make the coffee itself ideal for espresso, but also as a bold drip or French press.
