Sourced from Mexico, Nicaragua, and Ethiopia, this extra dark roast pays homage to Camp Dawson, steeped in history and named after Preston County's distinguished figure, Governor William M.O. Dawson.

Crafting the Perfect Espresso

Espresso, known for its robust flavor and velvety texture, demands precision and care in brewing. Here are a few methods to brew the perfect espresso using Portland Coffee's Dawson Dark 30 Espresso Roast:

  • Espresso Machine: The classic method involves using an espresso machine. Grind the Dawson Dark 30 Espresso Roast finely, ensuring even extraction. Tamp the grounds firmly, then pull the shot. The result? A bold, intense espresso with a rich crema.
  • Moka Pot: For a stovetop alternative, the Moka pot is an excellent choice. Fill the bottom chamber with water, add the finely ground Dawson Dark 30 Espresso Roast to the filter, assemble the pot, and place it on the stove. As the water heats, it percolates through the coffee, producing a robust brew reminiscent of traditional espresso.
  • French Press: While not traditionally used for espresso, the French press can create a satisfyingly bold cup. Coarsely grind the Dawson Dark 30 Espresso Roast, add it to the French press, pour hot water, and let it steep. Plunge the filter, and savor the rich, full-bodied flavors.
