This Peruvian coffee comes from the Chanchamayo Valley, one of the country's major growing regions. This area produces 40% of the country's total crop. These farms belong to small producers with less than two hectares of land that generate around 3,000 lbs. of coffee per harvest. This coffee is shade grown at high altitudes in order to produce a denser bean and a more complex cup characteristic as a result of its slow maturation process. In addition, the producers have made a remarkable effort to produce a high quality bean by only using sustainable farming practices.
Considered Peru’s finest premium gourmet coffee, Peruvian Chanchamayo is known for its medium body (sometimes light) with mild to bright acidity and delightful flavors and aromatic qualities, soft and sweet, and representing all of the best qualities of good South American and Central American coffees.
