The 1950 is interesting but I think too light for my tastes.  It is a bit bright, but not so bright as many of the current third wave offerings.  I cut it (and most of my espresso beans) with decaf -- in this case Vancouver from Verve.  So I might not be giving the perfect analysis of it.

It benefits from a finer grind and longer preinfusion to pull out some of the sweetness.  I find it similar to Counter Culture's Big Trouble and Forty Six.  Both lighter than a typical Italian espresso roast, but not so light that they are overly bright and difficult to pull.  Seems like a decent middle of the road option but not enough chocolate and berry for my taste.  My preference tends toward Redbird, Caffe Lusso, and some offerings from Klatch instead.

Hope that helps, let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for the overview, sounds like a great candidate for a Chemex/pourover considering my preferences in espresso.
