Latitude 23.5 joining ROASTe as our newest roaster!

July 01, 2009


A big round of applause please for Latitude 23.5 in Sarasota, FL.



It's the newest gourmet coffee roaster to join ROASTe.com.



I first tried owner Dimitry Erez's espresso at the Special Coffee Association of America trade show in Atlanta in April.  (Giving away free espresso shots is always a way to win over retailers like ROASTe.com!)   Its aroma was rich and balanced and the taste was equally smooth.   Too often in other espressos I taste a lot of robusta beans in the espresso or too much bitterness and ashiness from low quality Brazilian or Indian beans.  But Dimitry's was much more nuanced and balanced.



A few conversations later and we're carrying his coffees.

Latitude is just the kind of dedicated, passionate roaster that is building a national reputation.



We're glad to have them!



I had their Espresso Cafe Havana and it was delicious.  Try their roasts and post a review!
