El Perezo refers to one of the small hills in Costa Rica, but the name of this hill means "the Sloth", hence our cute packaging design. There are more than 2,000 micro-lot farmers growing coffee in this region and this coffee is from one of them, called Coopro Naranjo.
Lightly roasted showcases more honey with some praline in the background. Medium body
Brings out more of the nuts and chocolate, covering up the honey. Medium body.
The dark roast completely covers the honey sweetness and instead brings out a solid milk chocolate taste with a nutty aftertaste.
Resting Your Coffee
Right after roasting, coffee needs some time to chill for a minimum of three days. Our roasting cycle ensures that when you receive the beans, it’ll already have rested the minimum needed. However, the flavours will continue to improve over a time. How long? Well that depends on the roasting level you ordered.
Generally your coffee will be at it’s peak after:
Light: 7-9 days after roast date
Roaster’s Choice: 5-7 days after roast date
Dark: 3-5 days after roast date
But every bean and person is different so please experiment and find what works for you!
No Pre-Ground Beans?
Unfortunately no. We would love to make your experience as convenient as possible, and while grinding your own beans is firmly in the mildly to very annoying category, we simply can’t do this for you.
The reason being, the second you grind your beans, you expose every nook and cranny to delicious coffee’s nemesis: oxygen. Too much oxygen and your coffee can go stale before you receive it in the post.
As delicious tasting coffee is our most important product we can’t take the risk of sending you a convenient but bland ground beans. Our best advice would be for you to buy a grinder.
