Our Cortez Hill – Espresso
Our Shop Signature Espresso rotates depending on season. Since Espresso is such an integral part of a coffee shop, we crafted a roast to be exceptionally drinkable either on its own, in a latte, or even as a Pour Over. We roast these beans specifically for Espresso. This allows for a sweet, well-balanced flavor that gives our Espresso a rich crema and chocolatey taste.
We are so proud of our Espresso that we decided to name it after the community where we got our start. Cortez Hill is a lively community in the heart of Downtown San Diego. Named after the iconic El Cortez Hotel, its tower can be seen from almost anywhere Downtown. We opened the first Achilles Coffee Roasters across the street from the El Cortez Hotel in 2015 and we’ve been roasting there ever since.
