Our Thoughts:
Peru as a coffee growing region has long been known for it's organic farming practices and "run of the mill" coffees that work best in blends... But as of lately, this origin is bucking the trend.  This washed coffee from the Cajamarca region was such a pleasant surprise on our cupping table.  On first taste, there is a lemonade like acidity which is both sweet and tart, but ultimately pleasant.  As it lingers on your palate, and especially as the cup cools, we get notes of creamy milk chocolate, ripe yellow fruits and toffee.  If you have ever tried Peruvian coffee in the past and have not been convinced, we highly recommend you pick this one up and challenge that bias!
