This lot of coffee is a multi-producer lot from a comité of twelve small farms around the village of San Antonio de Chingma in Huabal, Peru. Since each farm is only about 1-3 hectares, the producers combine their output to make a larger lot of coffee that represents their area. It's a very communal process - many of the producers share processing equipment and help one another harvest cherry, and the entire comité shares tips on technique to improve coffee quality year-over-year so that the lot fetches higher premiums.

There's a lot of coffee plant diversity in Peru, and this lot is indicative of that with a mix of Pache, Caturra, Bourbon, and Typica. Add in that some farmers in this lot have different washing & fermentation techniques, and you're in for a complex coffee with a very exciting flavor profile. We're getting a great juicy grape note, with some sugary sweetness and a backbone of rich chocolate. It's a coffee with tastes that will satisfy almost any type of coffee fan - a great all-rounder that we hope you'll enjoy again and again. Cheers!
