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.



Our 29th iteration of Penrose celebrates the expansion of Los Volcanes into Brazil. Our longtime milling and exporting partner from Guatemala has started working with a number of farms in Brazil to improve quality, transparency, and access to market. 70% of this version of Penrose will be from a farm called Rio Brilhante in the Minas Gerais Region. It is run by Ignacio Urban and his children and has been expanding in size and quality output since he purchased the land in the 1980’s. The remaining coffee comes from the farm of Jose Ydrago Gallardo in Cajamarca, Peru. We have long been admiring the increasing quality and complexity of this region and we’re excited to use our first natural-processed coffee from Peru in this blend.
