This coffee is from the norther higher elevation area of Peru. When we cupped it, I was in love with its balance of both syrupy mouth-feel, nutty complexity, but still fruity sweetness. These characteristics are definitely due to the farm’s efforts in elevation and sorting. AA is a designation for the sorting that means this coffee not only maintains a high standard of taste/quality but it also is very consistent in its make-up from bean to bean. Very few defects. (The black bear Peru is the same region, but less prestigious designation, just for comparison).

THIS IS ADVENTURE COFFEE, but CAN BE COMFORT. It isn’t overly fruity, due to its processing, but the more delicate flavors might be lost on people looking for a “dark roast.” Its nuttiness and sweetness are perfect for the holidays.

We only have a limited amount of this coffee.
