Every year we revisit our existing green coffee producing partners to source outstanding coffee, relationships we find great joy in renewing each harvest. We also taste and explore new coffees from producers we may not have worked with yet to find special examples that we know you’ll enjoy. This is one of those coffee’s produced by Edgar Alfonzo Cordova Saldana owner of a 2-hectare farm called La Montana, where he grows Caturra variety coffee under a cover of shade trees. Like many of his fellow members of the Lima Coffees cooperative, Edgar holds organic certification for his farm. The region of Cajamarca is a semi-dry, semi-cold, tropical highland of Peru with very fertile soil at high Andean mountain elevations. All of these factors contribute to the potential of specialty coffee production in the area which we see in this clack Peruvian coffee, it is a stunning example of what Peru specialty coffee has to offer. We look forward to adding this to our regular coffees we source each year working alongside Edgar to bring it to your cup.
Peru always delivers juicy sparkling acidity. The green apple and apricot notes combined with delicate florals and toffee sweetness makes great drinking, especially for filter.
