The Tocotucan blend was a joint effort between Per'La and a few of their most discerning customers with the goal to make a coffee that was supremely versatile, both as a drip and as an espresso. They specifically named this coffee Tocotucan as a subtle nod to the beautiful tropical bird with the complex and fruity Ethiopian component represented by the beak and the consistently delicious Brazilian Cerrado represented by the bird's body. We tasted ash, dark chocolate (70%), tobacco, hickory smoke, and almond.

Every coffee we share has been tasted and recommended by our expert Tasting Panel who have years of experience in specialty coffee. We cast a wide net, trying hundreds of coffees, keeping an open mind to new regions, processes, and roasters, and going through many rounds of cupping. If there was an easier way of choosing each coffee, we wouldn't want to do it.

This is a very versatile coffee that tastes great as both a pour over and an espresso. This coffee also pairs well with milk.
For espresso we recommend 19 grams in for 36 grams out with 27 second brew time.
For pour over we recommend 1:15 coffee to water ratio brewed over three minutes.
