Before checking out the review, make sure you know what kind of preferences I already have. I do my best to avoid bias in reviews, but feel free to check our bit on “flavors” on our about page.
They are famed for their “Fable Espresso” blend. It is a popular choice for straight espresso with caramel, red apple, and chocolate notes. It is no surprise the Fable team sent this over for review.
Espresso and Beans
It took me a handful of attempts to get dialed in, but since I am on a new setup, I think it will improve over time as I get more experienced. This espresso blend is primarily a medium roast. It smells lovely and has deeper bark aromas. It did not bite as much as I expected for a medium roast. I was getting the bitterness profile of red apple and citrus, which is sometimes difficult to describe. The sweetness profile was light caramel, with some dark chocolate notes.
Final Thoughts and Verdict
I would recommend this to anyone who regularly drinks straight espresso. The flavor profiles were sophisticated and enjoyable in straight espresso. I would even say refreshing. That said, this blend was just as delicious in my regularly drank whole milk lattes.
California might end up building a reputation for Espresso as it does with wine!
All the best,
