Saints & Scholars, Peru (170g)
Notes: Blackberry, Vanilla Custard & Lavender
Saints & Scholars is our seasonal House Espresso. From a farmer community surrounding the village Flor De Selva in the north of Peru, we pay a premium for a blend concept from organic producers growing Caturra, Pache and Bourbon and on small farms of between 2-5 hectares. Each lot is produced at their own beneficios where they are depulped, fermented, washed and dried and often on extremely basic equipment.
Regardless of how basic their set-up is, we were extremely impressed by this coffee and are glad to be buying it from them and to be extolling it as our relaunched House Espresso. It has a lovely balance between being approachable and yet having a structure and complexity that we think should please a broad range of coffee drinkers.
