Even our packaging – extravagant by some standards – is chosen to ensure you enjoy the best possible drinking experience. We use thick-walled stand-up plastic bags that allow you to scoop beans easily. Peregrine Coffee’s bags have one-way degassing valves that allow the escape of oxygen that can cause staleness. And because we want you to drink our coffee within a week of roasting, we date every bag, and mail our beans to you in the smallest size that meets your needs.

In a world where beans are routinely over-roasted, coffee drinkers have gotten used to tasting the flavor of the roast, rather than the flavors of the bean – somewhat akin to the way burnt toast always tastes the same, no matter how fresh or flavorful the bread. At Peregrine Coffee, we vary our roasts to bring out the unique flavor profile of each bean we sell, resulting in a much greater variety of coffee flavors than most drinkers have experienced.
Peregrine Coffee is happy to be working with Northern Liberties newest restaurant, KOO ZEE DOO, providing bespoke coffee and espresso.
KOO ZEE DOO is a new BYOB in Northern Liberties inspired by the cuisine and flavors of Portugal. The phonetic name not only refers to the general adjective “cooked” but also to a traditional Portuguese dish, Cozido á Portuguesa. This dish, a boiled dinner with a variety of meats, including smoked sausages and vegetables, has numerous regional variations throughout Portugal and its former colonies.
At the heart of Portuguese cuisine are quality ingredients prepared simply to preserve their distinctive flavors. The Portuguese are a people who express love and friendship through their cooking, and KOO ZEE DOO wants to share that experience with Philadelphia.
The sweet smells from the cup evoke honey and peaches, and some of that is reflected in the cup as soft floral tones. The dominant flavors that come through are dark and smoky chocolate notes combined with the more traditional nuttiness. The mouthfeel is smooth with no discernable acidity at all. The finish starts off with a slight peppery edge in the throat, switching to a dark and earthy, long lasting aftertaste of quintessential coffee. A very drinkable, not-too-complex decaf.
Peregrine Coffee is absolutely thrilled to offer our first Farm Direct bean. After a few conversations with Roger Rittenhouse at Moki’s Farm in Hawaii, we will be bringing in small lots of this superb micro-lot coffee, direct from the farm.
