Penrose (named after the triangle) is Blueprint's “house” espresso. We feel the perfect espresso is an impossible goal, but we still strive to create it. Penrose is the ever-updated offering in the quest for the perfect espresso. While the seasonal components at times may be single-origin, and at others a blend, it is always perfect for your hopper.
Penrose also does well in the brewer – look for notes of lasting sweetness and heavy body, with a subdued acidity.
We’ve had v19 of this espresso blend targeted for some months now. It combines 80% of washed San Carlos, Guatemala (the same as will be in Tektōn v14) and 20% Natural Dimtu, Ethiopia. We used San Carlos in a version of Penrose last year and have been thoroughly enjoying the Dimtu as a single origin this year. Expect exciting shots!
Look for notes of berry, dried cherry, chocolate mousse, lime and orange.
