Penrose V.15



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 15 is a riff on v14 – we’re sticking with similar proportions of washed Guatemala and natural Honduras. This time around, our washed Colombia is coming from small holder producers in Huehuetenango Guatemala. The natural Honduras comes from the farm of Edgar and Karen Carrillo in La Paz, Marcala. Together, the coffees combine to provide a coffee with forward sweetness, soft body, and enough hints of fruit to keep the diehards happy.
