Trader Joe's Bali Blue Moon Coffee Beans espresso shot

I'm a big fan of most things Trader Joe's. Their whole bean coffee does make the list of favorable items. Most of their beans are dark or medium-dark roast, which tend to be too oily for a superautomatic machine like our Saeco Vienna Plus.

Among the lighter roast beans they offer is a medium roast from Indonesia: the Bali Blue Moon bean. The beans aren't oily at all and see, like a good match for the Vienna Plus. The first shot I pulled from the Saeco proved it can produce a nice, smooth demitasse of espresso. Nice crema, smooth with little bitterness. On subsequent trips to Trader Joe's I'll have to try some of their other lighter roast beans.
