Peruvian mountain coffee can be grown only in small quantities, because the magnificent Andes mountains divide growing land up into hundreds of little plots. To bring us this coffee, our Peruvian contact had to gather together harvests from several farms, each of which was located in an equally hard-to-reach nook between towering rocky crags.
Like our Papua New Guinea coffee, the Peruvian coffee represents an opportunity for otherwise isolated people to connect with the world and bring prosperity to their families. Our Peruvian contact is serious about uplifting the entire region, even to the extent of purchasing a cutting-edge gravometric bean sorter to ensure that these are some of the cleanest, most uniformly perfect beans we've ever seen.
All the effort involved in procuring this coffee does make it expensive, but we hope you'll agree that it's worth the price. Not only because your purchase directly supports six proud, hardworking farm families, but also because it's a darn good coffee!
