How It Tastes

Pleasant mild, smooth flavor with delicately sweet aromas


We approached our first light roast, Colombia Luminosa, as we do all our coffees: carefully select the very best beans, then hand roast them in small batches to achieve their utmost flavor. In Colombia, "luminosa" means "shining or bright" and this bright blend layers subtle sweetness from Colombia with just the right touch of Ethiopia floral aromatics; a pair we knew would go perfectly together.

Worth Noting

We started with a coffee from the Huila region in Colombia's highlands, a place where beans are cultivated over 4,500 feet and known for their smooth, sweet character. Then to Ethiopia, coffee's birthplace, where unique varieties yield exquisite coffees with delicate aromas.

My favorite Peet's brew by far. Wonderful flavor that is not over powering and does not give the caffeine jitters.

This company is amazing, the coffee is well cared for, the taste of the Colombia Luminosa was really good. I bought 2 of them so my friend could know what fresh coffee tastes like. I just ordered the Moka Batak peaberry.

One of the best I've ever home brewed
Exceptional taste and aroma

Love this coffee, it is honestly better than a lot of the more expensive Latin American coffees I used to drink. This is now my morning treat, grinding the beans and then taking in the wonderful aroma as it brews. The taste is smooth, not too bitter or acidic like a lot of lighter roasts. I am glad Peet's does offer lighter roast coffees, these are some of the best you will find anywhere.

I think this is the best coffee they make. My personal favorite. However you will seldom find it in a store so stock up here! (stores seem to have most of the other brands but not this one)
