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.

At Peregrine Coffee, we strive to know exactly where each bean is from – which region, which estate, and when possible, which farmer. We focus on single origin beans –not blends — in order to highlight the great variety of coffee flavors available across the globe, varieties which are naturally affected by soil, climate, and weather, and therefore as distinct from one another as Zinfandel and Chardonnay.
Each cup of coffee offers something different. Some coffees are bright, tangy brews, lightly roasted to enhance the buoyancy of the flavor. Some are mellow, full of chocolate, tobacco, or butterscotch. These are not flavored coffees, but coffees full of flavor, perfectly roasted to bring out the distinctive characteristics of each bean.
A cup of truly fresh, single origin coffee does not have a consistent taste. It might start out hot with elements of toffee and cardamom, cool down to hints of tangy apricot, and taste like chocolate when it’s cold. Experiencing the progression of flavors in a single cup is part of the excitement of drinking Peregrine Coffee.
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.
What exactly is bespoke coffee? How does it differ from ordering regular coffee? What are the benefits of bespoke coffee?
Bespoke coffee means single origin or single estate coffee personally selected for our clients to match their palate and custom roasted for their sole use, and is the process through which we guide our customers to their ideal cup. We work only with single origin or single estate coffee rather than blends. We focus on the beans that are the best representation of the countries, regions and, in the case of single estate beans, farms and farmers, and are, in many ways, not unlike fine wines. Peregrine Coffee then acts as Coffee Sommeliers, matching our client’s flavors preferences to the flavor profiles of the beans. We purchase the recommended green beans for our clients from wholesalers or directly from small farms around the world, store them at our roast shop, roast in tiny batches for their use alone, hand-bag and label, and ship within hours of roasting to ensure all the nuances of flavor are present in a truly fresh cup of coffee.
