I enjoy light roasts that show off the origin and varietal characters without a touch of distracting roastiness, so therefore I've learned to let the roasts "rest" for more than a few days. In the case of this Peru bean it peaked at about two weeks! Deep cherry, light chocolate, sweet spice hints (maybe cinnamon?) and a very pleasant citric finish, that's how it came out of a Chemex brew this morning. It had a bit of a steeper deltaBT after first crack, so I'm sure I haven't extracted all the flavor potential. Looking forward to roasting and brewing this again!
I was given a bag of this same Peruvian coffee roasted by Equator and was delighted to find it available at Bodhi. I’ve roasted several pounds and love it. Roasts easily and uniformly and is mild and low acidity. Has a smooth chocolaty taste. A standout.
The Peruvian bean was excellent. It reminded me a lot of the Colombian flavor profile, bright, citrus-acidic, bursting with flavor. I am looking for a good single-origin espresso, and I think this could work.
I suppose I've had worse coffee. If you want a serious coffee roasting challenge, this bean is what you're after. It may be difficult for the casual home roaster to understand this bean, so beware and enjoy!
I roasted this coffee to city plus and enjoyed the pleasant aroma it put off. I have tasted other good puruvia coffees before and this one was very similar. There is an overwhelmingly great aroma yet a mild taste to their coffees. This one did not disappoint me at all.
