Espresso Vivace Dolce Now Without Robusta

Espresso Vivace Dolce Now Without Robusta

The Robusta debate continues. Back in April Jerry Baldwin, best known for co-founding Starbucks and purchasing Peet’s in 1984 and so arguably a bellwether of “the old guard”, argued against the inclusion of Robusta in espresso blends. Now, we have an adherent of 3rd wave principles of coffee preparation lamenting the removal of this much maligned strain of bean from a legendary and seminal 3rd wave coffee purveyor’s signature espresso blend.

Has the world has gone mad?
