Coffee from the awe-inspiring mountains near Machu Picchu! A true microlot, only two sacks of these beans exists in the United States. When we're out, we're out, so don't delay--you definitely want to try this incredibly rich and sweet coffee. The cup starts with deliciously intense butterscotch tones, then develops a full and silky mouthfeel reminiscent of cocoa butter. Rich body with no bitterness; low in acid.
8 oz roasted coffee, Master Roast Harlequin. Please select ground or whole bean.
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!
