PENROSE SOURCING & INTENTION

Penrose, named after the triangle, is our seasonal espresso blend. 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 will vary throughout the year, it is always (nearly) perfect for your hopper.

Penrose seasonal espresso blend aims to:

  • be a reliable and consistent offering
  • be delicious with milk and without milk
  • maintain seasonality and farm-to-cup traceability
  • maintain a stable price point so it can be the main espresso on our bar and the bars of many of our wholesale partners
  • be easy to dial-in on an espresso grinder

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

 

SOURCING NOTES (v26)

The Cuatro M group of farms produces all of version 26. The blend for Penrose v26 comes from the Ayutepeque farm. They grow the Pacas variety and separate the processing of the coffee to our specification. Cuatro M produced this same blend for us with their last two harvests as well. Working jointly with Cuatro M to develop Penrose at the farm level maximizes our ability to determine exactly what we want going into the espresso hopper.
