Additional Notes : It has been a while since we had a Peruvian coffee and we are very happy to have this lovely coffee on. It is a quality lot that offers a wonderful balance of acidity and  sweetness.

From the Cordillera Azul coffee coop in the San Martín department in Northern Peru. The unique microclimates across San Martin, combined with the good practices of Cordillera Azul members leads to excellent quality coffee.

Peru holds exceptional promise as a producer of high-quality coffees. The country is the largest exporter of organic Arabica coffee globally. With extremely high altitudes and fertile soils, the country’s smallholder farmers also produce some stunning specialty coffees.

Farmers in Peru usually process their coffee on their own farms using the Fully washed method. Cherry is usually pulped, fermented and dried in the sun. Traditionally, smaller farmers would use tarps laid on the ground or under the roof of their homes. Increasingly, cooperatives are establishing centralized drying facilities – usually raised beds or drying sheds where members are encouraged to dry their parchment. Some farmers are beginning to adopt these practices on their own farms, and drying greenhouses and parabolic beds are becoming more common as farmers pivot towards specialty markets. After drying, coffee will then be sold in parchment to the cooperative.
