    One of my favorite coffees of the year, Shapeshifter is a nano-lot from Nonesuch Coffee, a Brooklyn micro-roaster. Nonesuch describes as coming from a 2.5 acre lot, which seems almost impossibly small! We were blown away how unique and delicious this coffee was.

    I drank Shapeshifter with my partner and we called it "Watermelon Sugar Pie" as I thought there was a distinguishable watermelon acidity that turned into brown sugar, and then a nutty/lime finish. It's a very clean light roast that reminds me of some of the excellent Nordic roasts we've been seeing recently.

    This was a very unique and delicious coffee, and we hope to see more from Nonesuch in the near future!

    This is a superb light roast! Extremely well balanced, with high notes, a sweet acidity, rounded out with a deeper roasting flavor. Flavor profile holds up throughout each sip and cup, ending with a light finish that clears out quickly.

More Details

Roast Level: Light
Light roast coffee is a delicately roasted coffee that retains more of the beans' natural flavors and characteristics. Light-roasted coffees have bright acidity, complex fruit, and floral notes. Light roast coffee does not have less caffeine than darker roasts because caffeine levels remain stable during roasting.
Bean Source Country: Peru
Peruvian specialty coffee is distinguished by its diverse microclimates and high elevations in the Andean mountains. These factors contribute to the beans' unique flavor profile, typically featuring bright acidity, medium body, and subtle notes of fruit, chocolate, and floral undertones.
Bean Source Region: Cajamarca
Cajamarca, a region in northern Peru, is renowned for producing high-quality coffee due to the region's high elevation, fertile soil, and favorable climate. Cajamarca's coffee-growing areas are located in the Andes Mountains, where the elevation ranges from 900 to 2,300 meters above sea level. This high altitude slows the ripening process of coffee cherries, allowing them to develop more complex flavors. The soil in Cajamarca is rich in organic matter and minerals, providing essential nutrients for coffee plants. Additionally, the region's climate—characterized by distinct wet and dry seasons, along with moderate temperatures—promotes healthy growth and reduces the risk of diseases and pests. Coffee from Cajamarca often has bright acidity, vibrant floral aromas, and rich sweetness, making it a sought-after specialty-grade coffee.
