Organic Peru "La Florida" by Supreme Bean Coffee Roasters Review |
  • Supreme Bean Coffee Roasters

    North Hollywood, California
  • Organic Peru "La Florida"

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: March 2004
Origin: Chanchamayo growing region, south-central Peru. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Rich in the aroma, pungent fruit, fresh leather, roasty chocolate. The roast tones turn the cup rather sharp and monotoned, however. In the finish softens once again toward a richly dry, chocolate-toned fruit.

Notes: La Florida is a cooperative of small-holding growers in the classic Chanchamayo growing region of south-central Peru. Certified organically grown. The Supreme Bean is a Los Angeles-area wholesale roaster specializing in high-end roasted-to-order espresso blends and single origins. Visit or call 888-288-5282 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Those who add milk but no sugar to the cup. Turns crisp and elegant with milk.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
