Supreme Bean Coffee Roasters
Organic Peru “La Florida”
|Roaster Location:||North Hollywood, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Chanchamayo growing region, south-central Peru.|
|Review Date:||March 2004|
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
Who Should Drink It: Those who add milk but no sugar to the cup. Turns crisp and elegant with milk.
