A second Microlot coffee from the awe-inspiring mountains near Machu Picchu! Beans from Campesino Matteo are receiving rave reviews and high cupping scores. This Medium Roast is set at our own favorite temperature and time to bring out the best of this coffee. There are notes of cinnamon, butter, and milk chocolate. It's truly a delightful balance and is low in acidity.
8 oz Medium Roast coffee, please select drip grind or whole bean. We have a very limited amount of this coffee left!
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.
Your purchase directly supports six proud, hardworking farm families, and will delight you with its great taste!

The Araku Valley of India
India's coffee tradition goes back 400 years or more, when a variety called Kent was first established in the Southern Hills. Arabicas predominated until the blight of 1870, when growers needed to hybridize to resistant varieties. The resultant strains had genes from Liberica and other unique, resistant species.
