Aroma

The aroma of this espresso is mellow, pleasant and well balanced. Its toffee sweetness goes well with the sweet acidity of blueberries and notes of cashew and pecan nuts.

On the palate, Butter Pecan Cookies Snack brings even more exciting experience. Its taste is intense and successfully bringing together juicy acidity of apples with the rich gianduja nougat which is sweet, smooth but most of all full of dark cocoa notes.

Extraction

The extraction works well, has a slow but steady flow and delivers a good amount of crema.

Our rating

Excellent

Packaging

The Snack-branded Yardstick Coffee capsules come in an unpretentious grey box with modern design elements. Capsules are made of plastic covered by aluminium. As such, they are not biodegradable and are difficult to recycle. As the name of this edition suggests, we should expect flavours of butter pecan cookies.

Notes

In the Snack capsules, Yardstick Coffee offers us speciality coffee in a fun and appetizing form. Even more importantly, this artisan roaster gives us in the Butter Pecan Cookies edition something to enjoy indeed – an excellent modern espresso. The qualities of this coffee are similar to Gakenke by Colonna or Honduras by Jones Brothers.

The capsules contain single-origin Arabica from Rodomunho farm in Brasil. The beans of the Red Catuai varietal were naturally processed which highlights their sweetness. An espresso prepared with 25 grams of the brewed liquid brings out the best qualities of the Brasil coffee – its full-bodied sweetness and nutty flavours.
