This Peru Cafe Femenino coffee has a flavour profile distinct to this region, with smooth milk chocolates, hazelnuts and some soft sweet fruits. I have been brewing Peru on my Otto stovetop espresso machine. The flavour profile of this single-origin works perfectly for a milk-based coffee.
The roast profile is best described as medium to medium/dark. The Peru gets at least 3 minutes in development time in the roast, allowing the coffee ample time to develop those earthy natural flavours.

The Otto Stovetop espresso machine is a revamped version of the old Atomic machine. It's a sealed unit that's placed on the stovetop. Once the temperature increases the pressures causes the water to push through the group head and extract the coffee. At the end of the shot, you can use the built-up steam pressure to texture and heat the milk.
It's such a brilliant design. I've actually taken this unit camping and enjoyed a café quality flat white while sitting around a morning campfire.
