Penrose V.17



PENROSE (named after the triangle) is our “house” espresso. We feel the perfect espresso is an impossible goal, but we still strive to create it. PENROSE is our ever-updated offering in the quest for the perfect espresso. While the seasonal components at times may be single-origin, and at others a blend, it is always perfect for your hopper.

PENROSE also does well in the brewer – look for notes of lasting sweetness and heavy body, with a subdued acidity.

Version 17 is a blend of familiar coffees from Guatemala and Honduras. The majority is from a farm called La Bolsa, which was the first farm from which we ever bought green coffee. It is sweet and round. For complexity, we’re adding a naturally processed coffee from COMSA cooperative in Honduras. This coffee is a regular component in Penrose and has served the role of fruit and body enhancer many times.
