Looking for something interesting and new? Give this a shot.

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.

People Who Bought This Also Bought

A well-balanced coffee, showing chocolate and florals on the overtones. Excellent body with a buttery consistency. The chocolate and floral notes carry through to the nice long finish, joined by a hint of nuts.
Chocolatey with a carmelly texture, heavy fruits, and a sweet honeyness.
Shade grown coffee from the Indonesian island previously known as Celebes. This Toraja coffee is the "sleeper" on this site, and our personal favorite.

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.
