1 lb. Peru Approcassi FTO Shade Grown Medium/Dark Roast for the Best Iced Coffees
- We have roasted, cupped, tasted, and enjoyed these international coffees. We recommend these as some of the finest cups for iced coffee!
- If you see iced and regular coffee as two separate entities, you may be a fan of the cold-brew variety. The hot-brewed method will result in a more robust flavor while the cold brew is mellow and naturally sweet.
- Cupping notes are included. Great for home, entertaining, and restaurant use. Contact merchant if you want your coffee order ground.
- Iced coffee -- the cooler and more refreshing relative of your morning cup of joe -- is a blessing come summertime.
- Organic, Fairtrade, Bird Friendly, and Rainforest certified coffees are available.
There is an art that's worth perfecting when it comes to making iced coffee. There are two schools of thought when it comes to iced coffee, the hot-brewed and the cold-brewed. While they adhere to very different methods, there is one point both agree upon: pouring regular-brewed coffee over ice is nothing short of a travesty. Coffee is a fragile beverage, and it doesn't sustain extreme change in temperatures well. Often times, this will result in a coffee that is acrid, sour or weak. So, how do you make a good iced coffee? Well, it depends on your tastes and the way you perceive iced coffee. If you want an iced beverage that tastes like regular coffee, the hot-brewed method will give you that result. If you see iced and regular coffee as two separate entities, you may be a fan of the cold-brew variety. The hot-brewed method will result in a more robust flavor while the cold brew is mellow and naturally sweet.

I'm new to coffee and am discovering it primarily through cold brew. I found out very quickly on my first order from RhoadsRoast that I am NOT a fruity/floral coffee person. The Tanzanian peaberry was WAY too floral for me. This time around I experimented with the opposite end of the spectrum and tried both Peru Approcassi and Indo-Pacific Java Kayumas. The Peru Approcassi is excellent! It has none of the floral notes that I disliked, and all of the traditional flavors that I expected from coffee. It is excellent for cold brew, and even better hot in my opinion - which is strange, because I thought I preferred cold brew :) But this coffee is showing me both can be awesome!
And here's the awesome part: the Java-Kay is even better!!! For my tastes, the Java-Kay was slightly stronger, which is better for cold brew. It was a little richer/earthier/darker flavor, which is great because I love to mix my cold brew drinks into mochas and I need the coffee to be able to stand up to milk and sugar and chocolate and still shine through.
Both are great. I'd give the Peru a 4.8 and the Java-Kay a 5.0.
I'm very excited to have found my cold brew go-tos so quickly! Almost time for another order :)
