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 present a hint 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.
