Caffe Lusso Coffee Roasters
Café Inkaico del Peru
|Roaster Location:||Redmond, Washington|
|Coffee Origin:||Cusco Province, south-central Peru.|
|Review Date:||March 2004|
Blind Assessment: The aroma is subtly rich and crisp with dry cocoa tones. In the cup a sweetly balanced, delicately floral, cherry-toned coffee wants to emerge, but something is shadowing the profile, perhaps a very slight but flavor-dampening mildew.
Notes: This coffee is one of three marks exported by youthful and idealistic Peru-based KC O'Keefe's Jungle Tech. Philip Meech, roaster master of the small, youthful Caffe Lusso roastery and cafe;, started his career in coffee in one of the best ways - as a college-town barista. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who want to roll the coffee dice and hope they get a bag of this lovely, delicate coffee free of the very slight shadow taint that haunted this sample.
