Coffee aficionado James Murphy has finished creating his own espresso blend for Blue Bottle. “It’s a very neutral espresso with really intense elements,” he tells Rolling Stone. “It’s lighter than a traditional Italian roast, but not as light as a Nordic espresso.” He also says that it pairs perfectly with both water and steamed milk. But only Murphy gets to enjoy this seemingly perfect espresso blend for the time being: It’s not available to the public just yet. [Earlier, Rolling Stone]
