They used to roast some with espresso in mind but I haven't seen it this year. Do you think it would be possible to get a good shot from this "filter roast"? If so, what would your recommendations be for the ratio, temp and grind?

Verve have a couple of espresso blends and usually sell a least one single origin espresso that's labeled as such. They once sold the Elida Estate Natural as a SOE so I'm assuming the roast I have is different.
