PS COFFEE Flavor profiles
Coffees with acidity of incredible quality that matched with sweetness taste like fruit: lemon, orange, lime, papaya, pineapple, blueberry, strawberry. Acidity is the hops of the coffee world and while not for everyone, is often found in the most elegant of coffees. These are most often the high grown Central American coffees and East African Coffees.
When the weight, texture, and sweetness of the coffee predominate are in perfect harmony, and we detect minimal acidity and bitterness, we call those coffees smooth. In coffee lingo, we call them balanced. Often these are Latin American coffees and clean tasting natural coffees, but the best East African and Asian coffees often come out tasting smooth.
These coffees are taken sufficiently beyond first crack to introduce roast flavors. Caramelized sugars and baker’s chocolate with bitterness. Best suited for lubricating car engines and for cutting through milk. Our darkest roasts minimize oil loss while maximizing caramelization and sweetness.
