OCC's VP Jack Treatment asked Davis Adamson, OCC's Coffee Roaster, why he enjoys this Peruvian coffee.
Jack: What attracted you to this lesser known single origin varietal?
Davis: This Peruvian has a vibrant acidity, while still not leaving your tongue with a sour tasting note.
Jack: How are you going to roast it, and why?
Davis: We roast this to a Full City/Dark American Roast because it smoothes out the light acidity of the bean to bring out the chocolatey flavor of this full bodied cup.

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.
