Peru Aproselva

103,00 kr

Peru is a light roasted, organic, single-origin coffee sourced directly from the Aproselva Cooperative in the mountainous and remote region of Pichanaki in Peru. This medium-bodied coffee suits any style of brewing, great in espresso-based drinks or black coffee.

"We always keep coming back to this Peruvian coffee from Junin. It offers great complexity and aromatics, due to the high altitude and mix of different varietals. Let it rest a few weeks after the roast to truly unlock the floral aromatics of the beans. We particularly enjoy it as a modern espresso but it also shines as filter brew."

Despite being an oft-forgotten coffee producer, Peru’s not new to coffee growing, nor is it a small-scale player. In fact, Peru was the 10th largest coffee producer in the world in 2017, was one of the first countries in the Americas to receive coffee plants, and is generally regarded as a producer of exceptional beans.

Though the high altitude of the Andes mountains, running right through Central Peru, provide optimal growing conditions for arabica coffee, there are also farms spread across the nation’s coastal plain—and even a few in Peru’s jungle region of the Lower Amazon Basin. There really aren’t many areas of the country that don’t grow coffee.

Once you go high into the Andes, like to farms surrounding Cusco and Machu Picchu, the coffee begins to feature a bright acidity, vibrant floral aromas, and a rich sweetness.
