Back in stock for the holidays – our favorite Kona! The smells are sweet and spicy with buttery chocolate, cinnamon and cardamom. Once you take a sip of this, you know that it is a special coffee — it is very balanced, rich and smooth with milk chocolate, a touch of malty-musty-almonds and a citrusy-floral note. Not just a looker, this coffee is a talented star with real depth and complexity: a rarity indeed. This coffee has been purchased directly from the farm. Whole Bean. 250g/8.8oz.

Just got yet another GREAT order from Peregrine – freshly roasted Brazilian Cerrado – and right on time for our Thanksgiving feast. If you have not had your FREE (seriously – they will come right to your home or office) bespoke coffee tasting yet – you need to check this out. right. now.
Kevin & Louise, the owners are so accomodating and they roast up some of the best KenyaAA, Kona, Guatemalan (DH’s fave) and the aforementioned Brazilian.
I LOVE PEREGRINE!!!

Coffee addicts must, absolutely must, know about this coffee roasting facility, owned by Kevin Lawrence, who is as obsessed with flavor and freshness as the most punctilious java snob. Lawrence literally scours the earth for the most aromatic and sometimes obscure single-source beans, which he then roasts and sells whole to customers who receive regular deliveries of personalized orders. He makes himself available for tastings, by appointment, to any coffee aficionado, with particular emphasis on potential buyers of his bespoke service. Said service involves him matching a desired flavor profile to a rare bean, which he then ships fresh to his warehouse and stores exclusively for said customer, who then receives regularly scheduled deliveries of a roasted bag timed to adhere to his or her rate of consumption.
Can you give us a step-by-step breakdown of the process, from the client choosing the beans to the types of roasting available to sending out the coffee?
For clients in the Philadelphia area, Peregrine Coffee begins the process with in-person tastings at our roast shop or in a customer’s home. We are available to travel to conduct tastings farther afield, but for more distant clients we usually begin the process with an email survey about flavor preferences and coffee habits. We follow that with a conversation to focus in on the client’s tastes, and then we go to market, scouring the world for beans that we think will please our customer’s palate. We send fresh-roasted samples for them to try, then, on approval, import anything from five pounds to an entire year’s worth of green beans to be stored at our shop for the client’s use, roasted to order, hand-labeled, and delivered on demand.
We specialize in roasting our beans to just the point where the true flavors that the farmer intended come through, before the flavor of the roasting process itself overpowers the subtleties of the bean. It is a process that combines art and science to balance the profile of the bean with the profile of the roast to maximize the terrior.
At Peregrine Coffee, we want to roast the perfect coffee or espresso for you. For your taste, for your lifestyle, in the amounts that meet your needs – for your morning cup, or for the special events in your life. Our bespoke service is at the heart of our business. From an in-depth consultation to scouring the world to find a year’s worth of your ideal bean, Peregrine Coffee can ensure that the coffee you drink is the coffee you want — sourced, roasted, and delivered as you desire.
You can be notified when an exceptional bean comes to the world market, and have the opportunity to purchase shares of a bag, enough for several months. Peregrine will then store the green beans for you and roast and deliver them as needed on demand.
You can give a one-of-a-kind gift – a year’s worth of coffee chosen by you in consultation with Peregrine, to a friend or relative who is passionate about coffee. Or perhaps a Peregrine gift certificate that will open the door for a colleague who wants to know coffee as well as he knows wine.
You can host a coffee-tasting party for 12 or 200, with Peregrine coffees specially roasted to reflect the wide range of coffee flavors available on the world market. Have Peregrine’s roaster be your guide in person, or in consultation before your event.
You can serve exceptional coffee chosen just for a wedding reception, special birthday, or business launch – freshly roasted and delivered just for your event.
