We recently chatted about Peruvian coffees with our friends Rosetta Roastery on the Cape Coffee Beans Podcast. In the episode, Rosetta's founders explained their enthusiasm for coffee from this South American country. It has incredible potential, and like our friends at Rosetta, we've been pretty impressed with the coffees that we've tasted from Peru of late. Rosetta has been responsible for sourcing most of those great Peruvians, and this one continues the trend.
There's a lot to love about this coffee. It has plenty of body, some pleasant well-integrated acidity, some subtle nutty, creamy and even stone fruity notes, but best of all, it's bursting with syrupy sweetness. This is one of those coffees that will no doubt be both a crowd pleaser, as well as something that the real coffee nerds will enjoy savouring and exploring. We made our best brews in immersion coffee makers like the AeroPress and our Yama siphon. We'd highly recommend that you try a bag!

These high-grown Peruvians are surprisingly resistant to heat. We got best results with a rather long ramp, and aggressive heat before, during and after first crack. The end result, however, is anything but aggressive.
Peru is a region bursting with coffee potential. This community lot is contributed to by 25 farming families in the Agua de Nieve community, who realised their elevation and quality soils showed great potential for specialty coffee. After a decade of work, they now focus specifically on production of quality coffees, and are achieving the potential they envisaged first 15 years ago.
