espresso-of-the-monthVariety is the spice of life!

One of our favorite aspects of coffee is the great variety of tastes and flavors. The variety of flavors ranges from distinctly fruity to distinctly spicy to smooth and chocolaty. So why should espresso lovers be limited to only one or two options for espresso? PT’s Coffee is committed to rectifying this injustice. For the next 12 months, we are committed to pooling our creative juices and compiling our coffee resources to produce a new espresso offering every month.

Since their inception, barista competitions have always been an important part of life at PT’s Coffee. As the last step in the seed to cup voyage, the hard work of the farmer, coffee buyer and roaster rests upon the shoulders of the barista. Beautiful things can happen when baristas know their craft and their coffee, but it requires a lot of hard work. During competition season, the baristas are given free range to explore our coffee offerings in pursuit of their perfect coffee. This year, one of our baristas wanted to try one of her favorite drip coffees for her competition espresso. She thought that Finca Cerro Paldo’s beautiful balance and lush sweetness might do wonderful things for espresso at a little darker roast. Now we get to reap the rewards of her hard work. We liked it so much that we have made it our April Espresso of the Month!

In the cup, our April Espresso of the Month from Finca Cerro Paldo in Costa Rica is juicy, with high floral and red fruit notes. It is sweet throughout and is a remarkably complete single origin espresso!  Purchase Finca Cerro Paldo Espresso Roast here!
