Roasted - Peru Organic Fair Trade HB MCM


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.
