Raspberry Beret, rhymes with…

Raspberry Beret rhymes with Peaberry Parade, which is what’s rolling out of the shrub gates today.

El Salvador Finca Matalapa Peaberry


“Matalapa Peaberry has great balance and sweet accent notes. The dry fragrance has sweet citrus, praline, honey and floral notes at City+, and a syrupy molasses sweetness at Full City roast. You can find the same sweet, mild citrus in the wet aroma, with butter-caramel and Almond Roca scents. The cup is bright, with bracing orange acidity, laced with slight floral bits. As it cools my lighter roasts (City+) became more and more bright and dynamic, lemony with a cinnamon note and malty grain sweetness. Light roasts have a correspondingly light body, but it fits the high-toned, refreshing flavor profile overall.”

Colombia Peaberry Los Caracoles Del Sur


“Dark caramel sauce marks the wet aroma from the cup, with strong fudge notes in the Full City roast level. The fruits are winey, Merlot grape in the aroma, with cinnamon bark accent. The cup has a sweet caramel malt roast taste, brown beer sweetness, mission fig fruit, and a creamy mouthfeel. There is a dash of nutmeg and cinnamon, which dry on the palate in the aftertaste. The body seems syrupy but not long-lasting as the coffee passes over the palate; but this effect pairs well with the flavors in the finish. This is a great SO espresso! It’s like sweet plum syrup and caramel sauce – exceptional!”

It was a Peaberry Parade, the kind you find at the Coffee Shrub store.

Go ahead and hum that all day, much better than the theme from Arthur starring Dudley Moore which has been haunting me this morning.
