Peru Geogorio Torre from Called Coffee
roaster: Called Coffee; Anniston, AL
Called Coffee is from Anniston Alabama and they have a great story. The story here is the family lived in Peru for two years working with churches and non-profits. They actually had coffee grown on the Torre Family farm in Pango Peru, and of course really liked it. After they came back to America and decided to start a coffee company, they wanted use the beans from this farm for their coffee. This coffee is grown in the Andes Mountains, and this bag was a medium roast that made a cup of coffee most of you would enjoy.
We know the varietals of this coffee are Bourbon and Caturra. As an espresso it was creamy, slight bitterness, with good crema. Single origin espresso shots can go a lot of different directions, but this one certainly was doable as espresso, it didn’t standout, but it did not disappoint.
Espresso Rating – 87pts.
As a coffee it offered nice complexity, with some notes of orange, caramel and rich honey. Traditionally many Pervian Coffees have not been consider flavor forward coffee by the specialty coffee industry. This was a good coffee, and majority of coffee would really enjoy, and one of the most versatile coffees we’ve reviewed recently.
Coffee Rating – 90pts.
