Velo - Winter/Spring 2014 is round and juicy. As a pour over, it is buttery, chocolately sweet, with a pleasant tartness of dried berries. It is delicate and almond lingers in the finish.
As an espresso, it is vibrant and delicate with high tones of nectarine and apricot.
Velo is the name for our seasonal coffee project. It is an exploration of espresso with characteristics that are very different from our mainline blends. We find that this blend also makes a great blend for pour over preparation.
Velo takes its name from the French street word for Bicycle. Beginning in 2013, PT's Coffee Roasting Co. has been a proud sponsor of two cycling teams: TREK Midwest Women's Cycling Team, and GP VeloTek.
Coffee and cyclists have gone together for a long time and we are glad to keep that tradition alive. We wish our friends the best of luck on the course and in the velodromes, and celebrate their successes and achievements through these new espresso offerings.
