How to Brew Lord & Lady Coffee

"What’s the real difference between espresso roast and filter roast, anyways, and does it really matter how I brew them?"

We hear this question often, and it's a great one.

We source some of the world's best coffees and to help bring out the best flavours in the bean, we roast very specifically depending on the use.

So, bringing home the correct roast for both your taste and brewing method of choice is key to making the perfect cup of coffee, wherever you may find yourself.

We’ve outlined the differences between two types of brewing methods, espresso machine vs. drip brew, and roasts, espresso roast vs. filter roast, finally answering one of our most frequently asked questions.




Choose Your Bean: Espresso Roast vs. Filter Roast. What’s the difference?

Espresso Roast:

  1. Roasted slightly hotter and for a longer period of time
  2. Easier to dissolve the right amount of coffee into the water because it’s roasted to be more soluble.
  3. The increased solubility helps the extraction to push past sourness (under-extraction) into properly extracted coffee which tastes much sweeter and balanced
  4. Can be brewed as a espresso or filter coffee. The espresso roasts are great for people looking for more body and less acidity in their regular coffee.
