Description: This coffee was submitted to the Peru Cup of Excellence Competition and made it into the final eighty; which comes as no surprise due its exceptional cup profile. Roasted gently for filter, we wanted to accentuate the heavily fruited notes and wonderfully biscuit body that reminds us of a sweet strawberry cheesecake! The creamy mouthfeel also adds great structure to this delicious coffee, and we hope you enjoy brewing it at any time of day.

Origin: With the Pacific Ocean to one side and the Andes to the other, the mountainous country of Peru is the ninth largest coffee producer in the world, and the third largest in South America. Most of Peru’s coffee farms are less than four hectares in size as a result of the steep slopes and its remote topography. Situated in the Cajamarca region, on the eastern side of the Andes, Las Pirias farm benefits from high elevations and favourable climatic conditions at altitudes between 1700 and 2000m.

Producer: Eli Espinza Soberón came to Cjamarca region as teenager where he started working as a coffee picker. After a while he was able to buy small parcels of land spread across the village Las Pirias. Eli processes all of his coffee on the farm, where it is washed to remove any ‘floaters’ before undergoing a skin drying process under the shade for one day. The cherries are then moved to a solar drying tent, where they are dried under controlled conditions for 14 days. We are delighted to work with our partners at Falcon Specialty who have recognised the country’s potential and have invested heavily in supporting Peruvian smallholder coffee producers. By incentivising quality and paying well above the market price, more coffee producers – like Eli – are able to return to profitability and thus contribute to the sustained social and economic wellbeing of their community.
