La Colombe Phocea Coffee
A blend of coffee beans from El Salvador, Ethiopia, and Brazil harmonize to create the perfect mix for everything from French press to espresso. A raw, robust coffee blend that is as suited to dark cups of espresso and manual pour-over brews as it is to standard filter drip. Quick Facts Origin: Philadelphia, PA Unit Size: 10 oz. The Flavor Experience Phocea is a dense and flavorful coffee from a Philadelphia institution, made from a blend of ethically sourced beans from three different continents. One of La Colombe original four classic blends, it is a medium-dark roast that's easy on the acidity, with subtle notes of chocolate and an aromatic earthiness. The Story La Colombe was founded in 1994 in Philadelphia by Todd Carmichael and Jean Philippe Iberti, with the vision to create the perfect "culinary coffee," an elevated caffeine experience with a strong focus on flavor and quality. They opened their first cafe near Rittenhouse Square and now, 18 years later, have 11 cafes across Philadelphia, New York, Chicago, and DC. La Colombe is committed to ethical, earth conscious trade practices, and has a deep dedication to philanthropy, providing healthcare and education to orphaned children in Ethiopia and Uganda, and digging 1,000 water wells across Africa to ensure access to clean water for all. Usage Tips Phocea's light acidity and strong depth of flavors shine in either steaming mugs on cold mornings, or poured over ice on summer afternoons.
