Product Description

Zoka Coffee's award winning Espresso Paladino is a blend of five coffees. Proven in barista competitions world wide, Espresso Paladino creates a consistent espresso experience shot after shot. The flavor profile has a rich, honey-body with the subtle taste of baker's chocolate and walnuts. There is a fine acidity in the lingering finish. The crema produced is flecked with caramel and cocoa flavors. Espresso Paladino is a classic espresso blend of 100% Arabica beans. Sourced from South American, Indonesian and African origins, Zoka uses only the highest grade of coffees. These are prized coffees used in their single-origin blends, not fillers. The five origins that comprise Paladino are selected for their unique contributions to the aroma, body, sweetness, and aftertaste of the brew. It is roasted a bit darker than medium or Full City stage.

  • 12 ounce bag, Premium Whole Bean Coffee
  • Roasted Fresh in Seattle

SCG Tasting Notes:

Smooth, Sweet, Slightly Floral, Rich Dark Sugars

This Zoka Coffee Espresso Paladino is smooth with no bitter bite. It is a lighter espresso roast than what a US mega-roaster produces, and some may find it is not bold enough to suit their taste.

Tips and Tricks

SCG Recommended Brew Methods:

  • Espresso

Is this an oily bean?
Sam V on Jan 21, 2014
Best Answer: No, the Zoka Paladino is a non oily bean and so it is a good option for super automatic machines.

It's a winnerReview by Homestead Barista
Lives up to everything I read about it. Very tasty and I'm enjoying my cappuccinos and lattes more than ever. It's the one I've been looking for. I'll be back for more! (Posted on 7/27/2014)
Yep, love this oneReview by SpencerM
I think I've found my favorite espresso. Once I got my machine calibrated with the first bag, it was happiness from then on out. I use this primarily for dry flavored lattes, and it's excellent with more or less milk. It's strong enough to stand through the milk, but not smoky and burnt. As straight espresso it's smooth and easy to drink. The crema it produces is beautiful, and I am pleased to say that this will be my go to for a long time to come. I don't feel like it's strong caffeine-wise, and I feel like that's a plus. Other roasters try to sneak Robusta in to up the amperage, but this is 100% Arabica. This way, a caffeine sensitive person like myself can drink more and still go to bed. Yay! (Posted on 12/17/2013)
New go-to coffeeReview by Ceejay
This is my new favorite coffee. It tastes as great as it smells, soft hints of chocolate. I love the less oily beans for my machine! Must try! (Posted on 11/26/2013)
Incredible Coffee BeansReview by Andrew Stowe
In all honesty, I ordered them to get over the limit for the $5 off coupon when getting the froth to perfection pitcher (which is also great). I was pleasantly surprised by one of the best coffee experiences I've had outside of a Seattle or European coffee shop. Highly recommend them and will buy them again. They are not oily espresso beans, like the big chain beans, and will make my superautomatic espresso machine go much longer between time-consuming cleanings. Highly recommend. (Posted on 10/31/2013)
excellentReview by Nivek
this is a great espresso blend - not over-roasted like the big national chain, and always delivered fresh. wife even uses it for drip (Posted on 8/19/2013)
great coffee beansReview by wizzardbee
I have always used espresso beans that were oily.
Since oily beans are not recommended I tried the Zoka Paladino blend!
Great taste , will order these again

Recommended by StaffReview by HiTecHoBo
Kat and Gail used this Zoka favorite in a machine review. It's an absolutely fantastic bean & roast. It's my favorite bean in almost 30 years of strictly espresso. I'm a home roaster and hope to achieve this quality, just a beautiful job. (Posted on 2/19/2013)
Great TasteReview by Yakattack
Zoka has nailed it when it comes to Paladino, it's wonderful. I've been using it for years and the consistancy is spot on. Thank you Seattle Coffee Gear for carrying Zoka's coffees. (Posted on 2/14/2013)
