    I had a rare (for me) cappuccino at the New York Coffee Festival made with this roast at the Minor Figures oat milk booth. It was so good that it made me a fan of both. On my list to try more of this roaster.

More Details

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: Cusco
Coffee from Peru's Cusco region stands out for its distinct flavor profile and the unique influence of its high-altitude terrain. Situated between 1,200 to 1,800 meters above sea level around the former capital of the Incan empire, Cusco's coffee benefits from a slow ripening process, resulting in a medium-bodied brew with bright acidity and a clean, crisp taste. Its flavor notes often feature fruity, floral undertones, complemented by citrus, caramel, and chocolate hints. The region's volcanic soil, elevation, and weather create some of the world's best specialty coffee.
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.
