Roast Style: Classic

These will be fuller bodied coffees that exhibit more obvious roast-centric flavours, like caramelised sugar.

While bitterness has its place in every coffee, there is enough of that in each raw coffee without us ever feeling it is necessary to add more of that through the roast process. For this reason, even our darkest roasts are still very moderate medium roasts, relative to the full spectrum of coffee roasts available in the market today.

Our classic coffees will make great espresso-based beverages, and they're a good option for french press and moka-pot brewing, especially if you like your coffee with milk.

Roaster's Notes

In recent years, Peru has broken records and achieved some of its highest green coffee production levels of the decade! Although, the country has more to offer than sheer quantity.

At such high altitudes, the slow ripening of the cherries that make up this collective lot leads to notably dense coffee beans - in combination with the larger Caturra and Catimor beans, longer roast times with moderate heat application yield the best results!
