Description About Tony's Coffee - Sugar Bee Espresso
Sugar Bee Espresso is Tony’s new branding for their legendary Ganesha Espresso blend. This coffee is just an all around brilliant blend that highlights all of the best parts of our favorite brewed beverage. Bursting with rich, sweet, nutty flavor that doesn’t overwhelm, and a full, but balanced body to carry it all, this is an exceptional coffee and one of our favorites. While Sugar Bee is advertised as an espresso blend, it’s quite delicious in a wide range of brew methods.

Recommended Brew Methods
A 2:1 water-to-coffee ratio for your espresso shot is recommended. Using a scale to dial in your shots makes the process faster and more accurate. Your espresso grind should be very fine and powdery. Shots should take 30-40 seconds to brew and be thick and syrupy. Don’t stress, adjustments are always needed to get your shots pulling just right!
Start with a 16:1 water-to-coffee ratio for your dosing. You’ll want a medium grind size for drip brewing that’s finer than what you’d use for pourover. Make sure you give the filter basket a shake to evenly distribute the grounds in the filter for best results. Turn on your brewer and it’ll do the rest!
Superautos make brewing espresso easy. All you need to do is add beans to the hopper and press a button to pull yourself a shot. If your shot is a bit sour you’ll want to dial the grinder a little bit finer and try again. If it’s bitter, dial it a little coarser. You can find instructions on how to do this for your machine in the manual. Just remember to avoid oily beans that can clog your superauto’s grinder!
