Peru Hard Bean
Full City Roast
Enjoy this very well balanced brew from small farms in the Chanchamayo region of central Peru. This coffee includes Bourbon, Catimor, Mundo Novo, and Pache cultivars. It has a pleasant body, sophisticated smoothness, and pleasant flavor burst.
Coffee that grows at more than 4,000–4,500 feet is known as Hard Bean. At high altitudes, coffee matures more slowly, it will become more dense (hard) than lower-altitude grown coffees. These kind of beans are more desired since the sugar content and flavors develop more, giving it a good acidity.

Established in 1985!
Old City Coffee, Inc. was founded by Ruth Isaac in 1985 as a one-person operation. The original location at 221 Church Street in Philadelphia offered freshly-roasted, Arabica beans, brewed coffee, espresso drinks and brewing accessories. Our original mission to supply the public with freshly roasted high-grade coffees, combined with excellent service and competitive pricing, has not changed. This simple but successful formula has been the framework for our continued growth.
