Peru Coffee Farmer
Peruvian coffees are grown very high in the Andes Mountains. This exceptional altitude creates a coffee with bright effervescent snap, gentle sweetness, and nice medium body. Peru is an excellent origin for organic coffees, due to the hard work of a few exporters/importers in getting the farms and the mills up to organic standards.
Arabica coffee is grown on approximately 200,000 farms in Peru. Most are small, averaging less than two hectares. Most coffee is processed through co-operatives. Rainforest Alliance Certified sees the coffee grown under the canopy of the rainforest so that the local flora and fauna and the coffee beans are all protected.
This shade-grown Peru HB MCM Rainforest Alliance Organic exhibits a vanilla-nut-toned sweetness full of subtle citrus acidity. Extremely well balanced with a pleasing finish.
The cup has it all, body, brightness and good depth in the flavours.
