Our head roaster, Vincent, works tirelessly to bring out the best, most dynamic flavors of our coffee. He's got years of experience making sure that our standard coffees remain consistent. A balance of science and art, Vincent draws on his knowledge and intuition to pull out the best qualities in our coffees and create amazing variety that has us happily sipping all day long. It seems a shame to keep some of these delicious concoctions to ourselves any longer.
Vincent will be experimenting with new roasts and blends, and he'll pick the most promising and interesting of those tests for this program. Every month, we'll have a new offering available. These offerings will truly be limited. We will roast 20 lbs. each week, but once it's gone, it's gone. You'll be able to order a fresh pound the following week.
This month, we have Fair Trade Organic Peru!
What a delightful coffee to kick off this exclusive series! This coffee comes to us from the San Ignacio region of Peru. Fair Trade Organic Certified, our green coffee broker had this to say about how it was sourced:
"PERU FTO CENFROCAFE NORTE SHB EP is sourced from family owned farms organized around the Central Fronteriza del Norte de Cafetaleros (CENFROCAFE), which is an umbrella cooperative established in 1999 that supports 80 organizations and 2,000 coffee producers in the region of Cajamarca, Peru."
Delicious caramel and nutty almond notes predominate this experience. High-grown and fully washed processed coffee lends a medium body with a clean finish. Vincent has roasted this coffee to full-city medium. We hope you love it!
