Roasts next day. Ships within two business days

Most coffee from Peru is grown in the northern part of the country by small farmers organized into cooperatives. Peru is a go-to source for organic coffees known for their bright effervescent snap and gentle sweetness.

This week's offering is sourced from the Cooperativa Agraria Cafetalera Aprocanorsi LTDA - a cooperative that brings together 159 small producers, 29 of which are women. Established in 2004 with a strong emphasis on social and environmentally responsible principles, the Aprocanorsi cooperative offers Fair Trade, organic and UTZ certified coffee, among others.

Expect a bright, sweet and floral coffee with a medium body; fresh ripe fruit is the lingering note. Coffees grown at altitudes above 3,000 feet are described as "Hard Bean" or HB. The higher altitudes and lower temperatures produce a slower maturing fruit and a harder, less porous, more desirable bean.
