flavor notes explained

strawberry - Strawberry brings in that fruited sweetness alongside a light, herbal essence. This coffee has a fairly juice body that is uncharacteristic of a coffee at this price point.

blossom honey - The smooth developed sweetness comes through with a touch of herbal floral notes that blossom honey really encapsulates as a note.

black tea - Bitterness often has a negative connotation, but black tea incorporates that “good” bitterness. Much like cocoa powder, this coffee ties a smooth dark nuance into the profile with tea-like bitterness.

about Rony Lavan from Lima Coffees

Rony Lavan was introduced to our coffee importers from Peru through their Regional Select program. This was created to highlight the unique profiles found that are inherent to various microclimates in Peru. These offerings are sourced based on cup quality and character, seeking a balance of “taste of place” with availability and price. These lots are built as blends from coffees that cup out between 84–87 on our 100-point cupping scale, and come with regional and often microregional traceability, but are not farm- or producer-specific.

Peru is a shining example of progress and development through relationships. In 2014, our importers met Rony Lavan, a cupper at a cooperative in the Cajamarca region of Peru. After spending some quality time working alongside him, they started talking about how they could do smaller, higher quality, and more traceable offerings together. Today, they have been working with Rony, now-owner of his own company, Lima Coffees located in Jaen, Peru. We have been sourcing and developing the vast majority of our Peruvian coffees alongside the team at Lima Coffees since 2017, historically spending time in Jaen cupping and approving coffees while visiting farms and connecting with the many fantastic producers that Lima Coffees represents.
