    Roaster’s Notes
    PENROSE (named after the creator of the impossible triangle) is our “house” espresso. We feel perfect espresso is an impossible goal, but we still attempt to create it. Penrose is our ever-updated offering in the quest for the perfect espresso. While the seasonal components at times may be single-origin, and at other times a blend, it is always (nearly) perfect for your hopper. The aim of Penrose is: • to be a reliable and consistent offering • to be delicious with milk and without milk • to maintain seasonality and farm-to-cup traceability • to maintain a stable price point so it can be the main espresso on our bar and the bars of many of our wholesale partners • to be easy to dial-in on an espresso grinder. Penrose also does well in the brewer – look for notes of lasting sweetness and heavy body, with a subdued acidity. Version 16 is a blend of coffees from Colombia. The larger percentage is from La Fragua in Cundinamarca. We’ve worked with the Sinisterra family, owners of La Fragua, for the last few years, featuring coffees from Media Luna, La Fragua, and their variety garden. The coffee this year is extremely sweet with pleasant, juicy acidity. To round out the depth and sweetness in the espresso, we are featuring a red-honey processed coffee from the Inga Aponte Cooperative in Nariño, Colombia. We source this through our partners at Ally Coffee and have featured coffees from Inga Aponte in the past.
