Peru and Brazil Blend

From the roaster:

Lucero is the neighbourhood that saw the opening of our coffee roastery and the name we have given to our first Blend. It is composed of two coffees of South American origin: a Peruvian from the Andean region of Cajamarca and a Brazilian from Cerrado Mineiro.

After many tests looking for a super sweet flavour profile, we have come up with a combination in which we find hints of marzipan and chocolate. Plus a mild grapefruit acidity that gives structure and complexity to the coffee.

All this makes it ideal to drink with milk, although on its own it is also a perfect coffee to accompany breakfast or to end a good meal.

TECHNICAL DETAILS

We worked with two coffees of different origins, a Brasil Fazenda Santa Tereza from the Cerrado Mineiro region and a Peruvian from the Cajamarca region.

    Tasting Notes: A solid espresso with perhaps a bit too much acidity (not atypical of Latin American blends). Strong grapefruit and lemon at the front of the palate. I like acidity and maybe it’s 10% over my limit. On the plus side this shot of Lucero was low bitterness and has some complexity and a clean finish.

More Details

Roast Level: Medium Dark
Medium-dark or Vienna roast coffee features a deeper, richer flavor profile due to its longer roasting time. When selecting a Vienna roast, look for a lower acidity, bolder body, and flavors with dark chocolate, caramel, toasted nut notes, and mild smokiness.
Bean Source Country: Americas Blend
Latin American coffee beans often have flavor profiles characterized by bright acidity, medium to light body, and fruity or nutty notes.
Espresso
Espresso is a concentrated coffee beverage brewed by forcing hot water through finely-ground coffee beans under high pressure. It is characterized by its rich flavor and distinctive crema—the creamy layer that forms on top of the extracted process. When evaluating espresso, coffee experts often focus on key tasting characteristics such as aroma, flavor, body, and aftertaste. Aroma refers to the fragrant smells released during brewing, while flavor encompasses the coffee's overall taste profile, including notes of sweetness, bitterness, acidity, and richness. Body refers to the coffee's texture or mouthfeel, with descriptors like full-bodied, medium-bodied, or light-bodied. Aftertaste, or the finish, pertains to the lingering flavors and sensations experienced after swallowing the coffee. A well-prepared espresso is prized for its balance and complexity, combining these sensory attributes into a harmonious whole.
