“Leftist has been the daily espresso for our baristas for over 20 years – can you blame us for being obsessed with it? It's made of complementary single origin coffees that tell a consistently unique story through any extraction method. When dialled in by an espresso craft expert you'll find nuances of dark chocolate, cherries and warm baking spices. That said, expect sweetness and balanced flavors no matter how you brew it, it's a very approachable blend.”
