In the world of specialty, Peru was a once forgotten origin. With a focus on fairtrade certifications and blending as common practice, Peru was more geared towards the dark roast blend market. However, getting tossed into those blends were some super high quality coffees that stand out on any cupping table. Farmers were incentivised to put more time into producing these higher quality crops for more money and more resources.

Peru has ten growing regions, with Cajamarca being the most prosperous - sitting at 2000 masl; however it’s good to note that it’s not only at the higher elevations that incredible coffees are being produced, with many gems being grown at 1600 masl and even lower!

When we’re looking for a coffee from Peru we like to go for the ones that are bright, crisp, and refreshing. For some reason our flavour profiles for the Peru’s always turn into love letters. We’re not sure why. It’s like we taste a Peru and all of a sudden it’s a hot summers day and you’re in love and you’re outside laying on a checkered blanket being fed plump white grapes by someone that looks at you like you are already whole and everything is a dream. Then after you’ve had your sip you open your eyes again and actually you’re just sitting in your kitchen-cum-office and you still haven’t had a text back.

Anyway here’s some Peru’s we’ve had over the past years. Cool.
