Cortez Primo is a great versatile coffee across all brewing methods. The blend was created for espresso, but is also sweet and clean on drip brewing methods. This is our first blend we ever created, and is always improving for a balanced blend that isn't too light or over-roasted. Primo means "cousin" in Spanish or "best". We created primo using coffees that work great together, and produce the best cup for any coffee lover to enjoy.
