Peru Organic La Florida FTO


Starting at $5.75 / lb
As low as $4.00 / lb

La Florida Peruvian coffees continue to evolve and are beginning to show signs of real character and depth. This year's crop of La Florida shows a sophistication that is mature and makes for a great cup of coffee.

As a press pot, this cup is not overly complex, but balanced with a full body, pleasing brightness and a caramel note that lends a touch of sweetness. This would compare to the older Columbian standard with more fruitiness and balance than expected. There is a slight lingering bitterness comparable to an I.P.A. or a porter for beer drinkers. It isn't much, but you know you have just enjoyed a great cup for a few minutes after. This is one of those coffees that develops after the roast has settled for 24 to 48 hours. We had much better cups after two days than on the first.

Try before you stock up with a 1/2 pound sample!

I can attest that allowing the roast to rest for 24 to 48 hours produces a very good cup. One of the best SA or CA coffees I've had. I hope to vacuum freeze several pounds to preserve this seasonal crop, just in case next year's might decline. Recommend a medium roast (City + to Full City) and using pour over brings out all the nuances. Coffee Bean Corral supplies very good quality green coffees.

Coffee is good, not that distinctive but good. The lower rating is because of the poor packaging for mailing. The plastic bag opened during shipment, spilling out about 1/4 of the contents into the padded paper mailing envelope. Only a couple of beans were lost this time, but a past order had the same thing happen and I estimate about ten percent were lost through an opening in the corner of the mailer.

This is a customer favorite. Due to customer requests we needed to find a bean that would lend itself well to roasting far into 2nd crack. This bean fits the bill. Roasted to a light french, it has a rich and spicy aroma and robust yet smooth flavor. Note that when roasted dark, the bean size is quite large. We haven't had any complaints, but I know that some prefer smaller beans.
