Product Description

Try a sip of Seattle, embodied in Caffe Ladro's signature espresso blend. Ladro Espresso is a little spot of sunshine on a stormy day. By itself it is creamy and sweet with mild chocolate flavor. In a milk-based drink it adds layers of flavor without the addition of sweetener or syrups. It makes a balanced espresso or a full-bodied drip coffee.

  • 12 ounce bag, Premium Whole Bean Coffee
  • Roasted Fresh in Seattle
How Does it Compare?

The roast notes reference Creamy, Sweet, Chocolate, Dark Cherry and Caramel. However the SCG Crew (who sometimes - but not always - get it right) noted aroma of buttered toast and delicious Mexican food. The taste was a crowd pleaser as a drip and as Shiami's favorite drink, a lungo.

Tips and Tricks

This espresso is one of our favorites. It makes a beautiful Americano. It is very delicate in milk however. Consider using less milk if you make a latte. The espresso flavor will shine through and since this espresso is not bitter or acidic, you don't need to mask harshness with milk.

From the SCG staff reviews - which I trust - Ladro Expresso is getting high marks. I would like to know why you sell in such small quantities?

I can order 2 lbs of local ground Guatemala coffee for $20/lb, and the Lavazza Oro comes in 2.2 lb bags from SCG. For those of us who are not local and have to pay shipping charges, would you consider selling 1 or 2 lb bags, why 12 ounces?

Best Answer: This Ladro Espresso is one of our local offerings that is roasted fresh and delivered to us about once a week, and offered in smaller amounts to maintain that level of freshness. We do not offer it in larger sizes because we would not be able to maintain the integrity of the beans if sold in larger quantities. The Lavazza beans are packaged and sealed after a nitrogen flush, and so they will be much fresher in the long term, and can therefore be sold in greater amounts. I am sorry we don't offer Ladro in larger bags, but check out the Lavazza beans for those 2.2 pound bags, and read more about Nitrogen Flushed Coffee in the article by Kat below:

Full-bodied, rich cremaReview by A. Da Costa

Produces a rich shot with golden crema. The roast is just right for me: not too dark/oily, not too light. Notes of chocolate and a berry-like aftertaste. (Posted on 11/16/2014)
Good Espresso with a Slight Chocolate FlavorReview by Baristawantabe

Our family recently went to the Seattle area and we stopped to have coffee at one of the Ladro shops. My latte was very good so when I got back home, I ordered some of this Espresso coffee from SCG. Good espresso with a slight chocolate flavor. Mild enough for straight espresso, but strong enough for a good latte. (Posted on 7/24/2014)
Very interesting espresso tasteReview by Alex

I bought this coffee without knowing much about it. It's somewhat pricey, so I expected fairly good quality from it. I wasn't disappointed, while I wouldn't call this the perfect cup of coffee, it has a very interesting almost fruity aftertaste, exceedingly refreshing. It's a very good coffee to have in the summer.

Only reason I didn't give it top marks, is because I suspect the taste wouldn't be as enjoyable in winter where a creamier stronger taste would be desired, and the price is a little bit high for the quality of the product. But it's definitely worth a taste. (Posted on 5/30/2013)

This is a good, but not exceptional, espresso. A mild blend, with no particularly interesting distinguishing characteristics. (Posted on 5/3/2013)
