Why is Sextant espresso coffee so Sexy?

Why is sextant espresso different? The coffee journey of course. Our Espresso is a blend of Ethiopian heirloom coffees from small farms. Our coffee is also roasted in one of the most beautiful cities, San Francisco, California. Did you know that our owner was born in Ethiopia, where he grew up surrounded by his country’s rich coffee culture? Pretty cool right? That's what makes our espresso and coffees different, our direct connection to the birthplace of coffee. Let us introduce you to our espresso blend "Maiden voyage".
