One of the first perceivable notes of apricot reminds us that coffee is a stone fruit. We love the transition to something both nutty and sweet, like a carnival bag of candied pecans. Throughout the drinking experience, there are distinct notes of balanced chocolate. This coffee is a good recommendation when you are unsure of what to get and want something both citrus and chocolate forward.
Recommended for those who love a flavor profile that is jammy but clean in the finish.

The first-year partnership to our menu comes from a farm in the El Diamante village of San Jose de Lourdes. Roger Chilcon Flores grows his coffee on 3 hectares of land or roughly 7.5 acres. He grows both yellow and red Caturra at a high elevation of 19000 meters above sea level. This lot is a mixture of both colors of cherry. These coffees experience higher amounts of rainfall at this elevation than other regions in Peru, due to this and frigid evening temperatures, his cups are marked with intense citrus notes, stone fruit, and an enveloping smooth mouthfeel. Roger is not new to growing coffee. In fact, he and several of his family members grow coffee in the area. Besides growing his coffee, he oversees the picking, processing, and drying of the coffee for many farms.
Cherries are picked at peak ripeness and then are pre-fermented overnight in sealed bags. Keeping the seeds in their cherry form allows for more sweetness to impart on the coffee. Then the cherries are de-pulped and fermented for 24-36 hours depending on the weather. Then the coffee is laid to dry in a ventilated greenhouse on a wooden patio.
Love central and South American offerings, but this is top 3 coffees I have ever gotten. Was so sad to see it was sold out when I was ready to reorder!
I loved this coffee
The tasting notes are pretty much there! Good light flavored blend. But, it won't really shine in a latte (unless you like those lighter flavored lattes)
Finished half of my bag and most of the time I've been flash brewing rather than doing regular hot pour over. Personally feel that the coffee notes are better emphasized when flash brewing which I prefer for this kind of single origin. Tastes great!
Always very good coffee, service and shipping
The flavor is good, but unexciting.
I commend Verve for their prompt delivery.
Roger Flores has a great flavor that has a well-balanced acidity that you can taste, but which doesn’t become overpowering.
