Penrose V.13



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.

Like its predecessor, version 13 is a blend with 70% washed Colombian coffee, but this time we’re using a coffee sourced by Andrew Timko last August while he was visiting the ASPROTimanà cooperative. This lot is a blend of coffee from small farms around the village of Suaza, which is just east of the village of Timanà. Last year, we sourced Alvaro Losada and Jesus Maria Parra from this same cooperative. Rounding out the blend will be 30% of our Kimel Peaberry.
