It's quite a privilege to be witnessing the re-emergence of Peru as a speciality coffee-producing country. If you browse the site, you'll now find Peruvian coffees from a few of our roasters, whereas a couple of years ago, you may have found none. Peru actually has a history of producing arabica coffee, but economic conditions meant that little of a speciality grade was being exported or taking the notice of our artisan-roasting partners. That's changing now and we're certainly savouring the results.

This particular Peruvian from the Amazonas region near the Andes mountains is a combined lot with coffees from 12 farmers in the PROCECAM group whose coffees were identified as scoring 84 points and higher on a blind tasting.

In the cupping bowl it proved to be both distinctive and delicious with a malty sweetness and floral quality that is reminiscent of a herbal infusion. There are hints of mulled fruit and a depth of flavour that seems to evoke the quality of vanilla. These are less common flavour characteristics and certainly ones to be savoured. Our friends at Origin recommend it for espresso and siphon brews and we particularly enjoyed it in the latter.
