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 (v30)

It’s hard to believe we’ve now created 30 blend iterations of Penrose. This current blend combines coffees in a way similar to many of our favorite versions of Penrose – relying on a balanced washed coffee and turning up the complexity with a splash of fruity natural. This time around, our balanced washed coffee comes from the GRAPOS cooperative in Chiapas, Mexico. While we’re familiar with coffees of this region, it’s our first time to work with GRAPOS’ coffee. Rounding out the blend with intense fruity tones is the naturally processed coffee from the COMSA cooperative in Honduras. This coffee often makes it way into our Penrose and cold brew blends.
