DESCRIPTION

 

Skip today’s Duolingo, pals, cause we’re starting this story off with a short but super sweet Spanish lesson. PRIMOS = COUSINS. That’s right: this coffee was produced by the Jerónimo cousins — Filomeno and Tranquilino. It’s a family affair.

Originally, we cupped the two cousins’ lots separately, and we liked them both. Tranquilino, whose coffee we’ve featured on its own TWICE in years past, made an extra-excellent impression, but both were a delight. However, amidst what was a challenging harvest throughout Central America, Tranquilino’s total production was too small for it to be logistically sensible to form its own independent lot, and so its natural pathway would have been to a community blend. While such a destination is as noble as any, our history with Tranquilno PLUS our enjoyment of Filomeno’s coffee prompted our importing partner to suggest that we blend these two, effectively putting together a supergroup family band with a headlining performance here at the Touchy Coffee Garden in Troy, New York. What a show.

And so PRIMOS JERONIMO came to life, and we’re so thrilled it did. With the combined powers of Tranquilino, who farms several parcels that we’ve been honored to represent over the years, and Filomeno, who not only knows his way around Bourbon & Caturra trees but ALSO serves as the President & Legal Representative of the ASDEFLOR coop in which they both participate, this is a wonderful coffee that layers high-toned fruits atop nutty, nougaty sweetness. Whether pulling shots or pouring filters, this is one that’ll get the job done with aplomb.
