Featured Roast/Torréfaction de la semaine

I recently brought in some new coffees to add to my “Featured Roast” rotation. The Cuban Caracollilo was one of them. This week’s coffee is also one of those new ones.

The “Vieux Arbres” a Peruvian Antiguo from the provence of Chanchamayo. “Vieux Arbres” as a micro-lot is a special coffee. The farmer in this case separated out the crop from the oldest trees. The older trees have a lower production rate than their younger counterparts, but they have deeper roots. This reflects in the cup with more nutrients going to the beans.

“Vieux Arbres” is a complex coffee. A light spicy flavour and some chocolate coming through. This is not the bitter cocoa of the Cuban Caracollilo, rather closer to that of a ‘hot chocolate’ drink. Though not as big flavoured, the “Vieux Arbres” is also somewhat reminiscent of the Haitian Grande Cru de Beaumont.
