The Story

The Story

Southpaw espresso is a bright and juicy blend that earns its name from being nimble, surprising, and packed with a punch. This shot is well balanced, achieving a complex and sweet flavor profile with enough body to punch through short milk drinks. Southpaw is designed to work well as a straight shot or in drinks 6 ounces and under, such as a cortado or macchiato.


If your machine is programmable, we recommend pulling this espresso with the group head set at 199 Fahrenheit.

Dose: 20 grams
Yield: 32 – 34 grams

This espresso is best dialed in as a straight, slightly ristretto shot.
